Why Say “Or” When You Can Say “And” (For These Maxi Dresses)?!


I know I’m not the first to say that buying “one in every color” is worth the investment, but if there’s a staple piece of clothing (or accessory) that you love & just can’t live without, when why not? I have this philosophy typically when ti comes to cardigans & ballet flats, but with a busy summer ahead, I’m also applying this philosophy (& maybe fashion addiction excuse?) to the Goddess maxi dress @New York & Company.

I was first introduced to this dress last year & have since bought it in EIGHT different colors. It is super fashionable, very comfortable & breathable, & really, a classic maxi dress style that I will continue to wear for more summers to come. Truth: I bought it when I was very VERY pregnant last summer, which gave my big baby belly lots of room, but this is not a maternity dress. The banding underneath the bust was very forgiving & even now (not pregnant), I’m loving the flowing long skirt, which flatters my shape now. Not to mention that this dress can be style in a multitude of ways, easy breezy for weekend errands or dressed up for a special occasion! Most colors are available in sizes XS- XXL, which means that this dress really is for everyone!

I love accessorizing this dress with any number of cropped cardigans, long necklaces, oversized earrings, a denim jacket, & studded sandals. Every color of dress is a great foundation for some summer fun, coordinating with playful watermelon or pineapple accents, gawdy golds, or crisp white pieces.

SHOP: black pointelle shrug @dressbarn (shop plus size here), rimless gradient sunglasses @Forever 21, rose gold strappy sandals @David’s Bridal, stone pendant necklace @LOFT, large drop earrings @H&M, & charm bracelet @H&M.

If you’re in a quick bind of trying to figure out that one last piece to add to your outfit before you leave (no matter what other mantra you may have heard), maybe switch it up with some slitted leggings or one of these bracelets.  Right now, White House Black Market has these five items marked down to $20 & under.  You know, flower pins are a big trend that Carrie Bradshaw started & adding them to your twisted bun, on a floral tote, or pinned to your favorite pashmina would really glamorize any day look.  Not to mention these tights are only $8.99 & when some of their new items are a little costly, why not treat yourself to something inexpensive while you’re saving up for a flashier investment like a belted taffeta dress. Be sure to also check out some of their other marked down items, including these glass pearl earrings, black studded jeans, chino shorts, & a figure flattering mesh striped dress. Happy Styling!
