necklace: Charming Charlie
lipstick: Nars in Heat Wave
Simply put, you can never have too many black maxi dresses. They are such an easy piece to throw on when you have no idea what else to wear or you can jazz them up with lots of color or some crazy patterns.
I love the versatility of this piece of clothing! I do only have 2 of them, so obviously I need a few more in my closet so I don't repeat them too often and so they all last longer! Simple logic there.
Here I kept the pairings pretty simple. I added my Bcbg belt for a bit of sparkle and these sandals from Talbots, which are going to be making an appearance on this blog A LOT this Spring and Summer. They are the perfect comfortable chic sandal that goes with everything! The necklace added a polished touch to the look and the pop of red lips always adds the perfect pop of color to brighten any outfit! Here I have Nars lipstick in Heat Wave on, a great orangey-red for those of you who like the warmer toned reds.
Maybe once I feel I have the right amount of black maxi dresses in my wardrobe I will switch to the ever-faithful navy to switch things up!
Do you guys think this is a rut I am getting stuck in or a smart move because of its versatility?
