Full Circle

Summer calls for easy, breezy clothes when the sun gets hot. Today I am wearing the first maxi dress that I have ever owned. I have been holding off wearing it because I didn't want to look like I had a baby on board. But after spending the morning in it, I actually feel cool and comfortable and really pulled together.

[Green Stripe Halter Maxi Dress by Jessica Simpson]
I paired my own emerald green and navy color blocked maxi with these simple earrings in silver and copper: different sized twisted wire jump rings wrapped with thin wire for a cage effect. This dress from Jessica Simpson (yes! that Jessica Simpson!) has a similar flowy feel perfect for louging poolside... or even picking up groceries. Add a long dangly necklace, some bangles climbing your arm, strappy sandals - a must - and you look like a million bucks. I feel like I am on vacation when I wear this dress even though I am just sitting in my office.Who knew that this much fabric could be this much fun?! To me it finally feels like summer has arrived and come full circle.

  1. Ingenious design! And that can't have been easy to do, how you got the smaller rings so perfectly centered within the larger. It has a cool nautical effect, makes me think of life preservers and portholes, but with bling!

  2. Must try that effect with thread, Erin... you are so clever! Long dresses seem to be the best kept secret for ladies (really, gents OUGHT to be jealous LOL), providing superior sun protection while allowing us to stay cool all over.
