Workable Maxi

Vest: Old Navy, Dress: Topshop, Shoes: San Edelman, Hat & Necklace: H&M, Bag: Foley + Corinna, Bracelets: Ettika, Vintage

Before boudoir transformation 2011 (see yesterday's post), the hubs and I headed out to have brunch at one of our favorite spots. Since the sun was too shy to show it's face I went with a long sleeve maxi and my trusty ole' panama hat which covers a multitude of sins! Bed head anyone? I just adore the low back on this maxi dress, it's total business in the front and all party in the back. And might I add it made for the most comfortably chic working outfit!

The low back detail on the dress is smoldering hot. The crochet vest makes a lovely, dainty addition.
