black & brown

Saturday was our first day to get out and explore our new neighborhood.  I am already falling in love with the views, being so close to the water, and all the yummy neighborhood restaurants.  For me, a maxi dress is the perfect summer weekend outfit.  So easy to throw on, comfortable for running around, and fun to change-up with different accessories.  I paired this black one with simple brown accessories and gold jewelry on Saturday, but the tribal print on the shoes adds a fun twist.

I will be heading to Mexico in a few weeks for my college roommate’s wedding and this whole outfit will certainly be making the trip with me.  A black maxi dress is a definite travel essential because it doesn’t wrinkle, and it is so versatile.  Dress it up at night with big turquoises jewelry and fun shoes (possibly these!) and throw it on over your swimsuit with flip-flops during the day.

What is your essential summer travel item?

    Great maxi! My essential travel piece is a pair of comfy but cute flat sandals. I never wear heels on vacation (especially to the beach) so I have to make sure I ‘ve got comfy yet cute shoes on! Have fun — I just went to Mexico and had a blast!
