The Maxi Mainstay


Let’s just say I’m pretty much addicted to fashion. My daytime job is in the fashion industry and I am the type who really gets joy in figuring out new outfits and how to make the current trends fit my lifestyle. One of my favorite fashion mainstays is the maxi dress– it’s so comfortable, easy, feminine, and fun.

I recently grabbed brunch with my parents downtown and I threw together this little outfit for the occasion. We sat outside at this great local restaurant on their GORGEOUS patio and enjoyed various forms of eggs benedict and a breakfast burrito as it sprinkled all around us. There was something kind of relaxing about eating al fresco even though it was raining all around us.  After, we strolled around downtown and explored a few shops. A maxi dress and a vest are the perfect daytime look for a random Sunday morning adventure.

Sweat(er)shirt

At the beginning of this week the temperature changed drastically. Last week I was riding around in my car with the windows down in short sleeves and yesterday there was snow falling. Although it’s still not cold enough for the snow to stick, I decided to break out some of the warmer pieces in my wardrobe. I just recently picked up this comfy, cozy Free People top that is a mixture of a sweatshirt and a sweater. I’ve decided I will call it my sweat(er)shirt.
