Grecian Love

 Dress: Matty M, Belt: Vintage, Bag: Vintage Dooney & Burke, Shoes(not pictured): Sam Edleman, Watch: Gucci, Bracelets: Dior, Carolee, Sunnies: Ray Ban

Yesterday we had a bit of what the weather man likes to call a "heat wave", I on the other hand like to call it effin awesome. It has never felt so good to be schvitzed...I was like a pig in sh*t all day! Ok, I'm done now. I'm a huge fan of jersey/modal fabrics and maxi's (if you couldn't tell by now) when it's warm out...nothing like being comfy, on trend and chic all at the same time. This braided one shoulder Grecian inspired dress fits that bill perfectly, dontcha think?!

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

I do think...perfect fit. Is it purple or brown? I am a huge fan of the maxi. Nothing like throwing on a dress and going. If only Spring would make it to Washington.

This weather has made me one happy girl! Loving all your maxi numbers. Do you ever have trouble with them being to long? Sometimes I step on the hem and that makes me nutty.

The Style Glossary said...

Girl you're killing it here! Love the second maxi and the belt? Perfection! I'm a turquoise fanatic and I love how this look is understated but still super chic.
I'm definitely filing this away in my inspiration folder :)
