Night and Day

For this post, I teamed up with Missguided to show the versatility of the maxi dress and how it can be taken from day to night. In all honestly, this was initially a little bit of a challenge for me. I've worn maxis in the past, but it has definitely been a while. I didn't really consider myself to be a maxi dress person, but because of that I decided to take the challenge and figure out how to incorporate it into my style. After doing so I think its safe to say that I am a maxi dress person after all.

My Day Look:


For this look I decided to keep the dress simple, but use white accessories to give the dress more of a sporty look. The shoes were the key accessory here, and from there I added the sunglasses and the backpack to make it a little more casual.

My Night Look:


For this look I decided to add drama by sticking to all black. While the fur coat may seem out of place for a summer look, I absolutely loved the look of it with the neckline of this dress (also I'm always cold so its really not out of place for me). Instead of a necklace I decided to use a hat to tie the look together.

Pop!

Top c/o Front Row Shop, Pants- Zara, Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell, Hat- H&M, Watch c/o Vestal
If you haven't heard of Front Row Shop, then I advise you to check out their website immediately. When they contacted me I became overwhelmed by how perfect all of their clothing is. This top is from there and I'm in love with it (you can find it here). Not only is the quality wonderful, but its become my new go to top. They've quickly become one of my favorite online stores, and I basically want everything on their website. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Jacket- Zara, Top- Forever 21, Skirt- Forever 21, Shoes c/o G by Guess
I feel like this outfit accurately depicts the style I am currently coveting. Although, I feel like I have sinned against the blogger community by not pairing this outfit with Birkenstocks. I have a confession to make- I absolutely hate this Birkenstock trend. And it's not because I don't like how they look or anything. But something about taking this item that was previously not associated with fashion and now seeing it produced by Dolce and Gabbana is rubbing me the wrong way. It's this whole normcore idea. It's kind of on the same page for me as some contemporary art, where you just look at it and ask, "Does this really count as art??" (or in this case fashion). But don't get me wrong, I see some people pull off this trend very well. But the overall concept of it is what gets me. So that being said, I decided to go with these G by Guess shoes (found here) in attempt to add a little more to my minimal look.
