Happy Tuesday guys, hope you all had a fabulous weekend & start to your week! This weekend was great because JB and I’s friends got married on Saturday and it was such a fun wedding! Congrats again Em & Jake! <3 We danced, drank and danced maybe a little too much 😉 but it was such a fun time! Ok now on to the post below, today I am sharing the Tart maxi dress I talked about in my July Favorites. This dress has quickly become one the first pieces I grab when I’m in a rush or want a pulled together look for the day.
To say I’m obsessed with this maxi dress is an understatement. I have a few other maxi skirts & dresses and I’ve already outwore this one compared to those. This dress is one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own and its super flattering!
When I look for maxi’s I like to get a body skimming silhouette because they can overpower me very quickly. I tend to go for a more “mermaid” look so its very fitted to the body. Now I can’t take credit for finding this dress – in fact I would have probably passed on it if I saw it. My mom picked this up for me one day and I’m so happy she did (thanks mom!). She somehow knew I would love it, even though when she showed it to me I wasn’t keen on the print – as soon as I tried it on that thought was totally gone!
This dress has a lot of really great features but the jersey material is definitely on the top of the list. Its very lightweight and has stretch but doesn’t bag out. Throughout the torso part of the dress there is ruching and honestly its so flattering I wish all my dresses had it!
Now you know I love anything with a low or exposed back and this dress is exactly that! I love that its just a small dip but enough to give some drama to the dress. Plus I was walking around in 85+ degree weather that day and the open back kept me so cool.
A little bit of accessory talk 😉 Honestly I tend to keep my jewelry look the same unless I have a new piece that I just love. I grab my pieces that work everyday and just go. My Alex + Ani bracelet set has been a constant piece I wear for about the last 4 or 5 years because they go with EVERYTHING. Of course I am wearing my Dita sunnies again and my Polar m400 watch is almost always on me lol! My bar necklace was a special purchase that I got a few years ago from Miriam Merenfeld and it has the date that JB and I started dating on it. <3 It’s by far my most worn necklace and everything about it is perfect – from the size, to the style of inscribing, to the chain length. If you’re looking for a nice personalized piece that will hold up I highly recommend taking a look that the pieces on their site.
Because JB said this would be an awesome shot 😉
If you girls are on the lookout for a nice maxi dress that can transition into fall easy too I would take a look at Tart’s dresses. As I said before they are a great quality and are very flattering. The style of dress I am wearing is sold out in that print but I’ve linked the same style below (comes in black) as well as the same print (different style) below. Enjoy!
