The Right to Bare Arms


dress: c/o Karen Kane, sandals: Jack Rogers, purse: Brahmin

The title makes me giggle too. 

I used to have a black maxi dress, a while ago. I loved it - it's perfect for dressing up or down and can be paired with almost anything. A perfect summer staple in my opinion. I used to wear my black maxi non-stop during the summer. Then, one day, my mom accidentally threw it in the dryer and it was no longer a maxi dress. So we parted ways. 

I had forgotten how fabulous a black maxi dress can be until now. We are re-united! This time I have the upgraded version - it's a lovely material (that's incredibly comfortable) and the style has a super cute, boho flare to it. And it will never have to worry about getting near the dryer.

Black maxis are so much fun...I actually just got the midi version of this dress, and I'm tempted to style it every day! Love the sort of Grecian look you gave it with gold sandals and accessories...gorgeous necklace!

A black maxi is definitely a summer staple! I got mine a few weeks back and have been wearing it constantly. I love the way you styled yours with touches of gold and a pop of turquoise! So classic!
