Patterned Maxi

Before we hit the road on our recent trip to North Carolina, we didn't have a set itinerary so I knew packing multi-purpose attire was a must. When it comes to the warm-weather months and the vacation filled days of Summer, not much beats a great maxi dress.
I gravitate towards these floor length frocks because wearing one is essentially a piece of cake if you want to take your outfit from day to night no matter what your summer schedule might entail. Whether you're spending the day shopping, walking the boardwalk, or sight seeing, and your evening having a romantic dinner date with your honey; a lovely dress like this one will have you looking stylish the whole way through.
 So, as I was shopping for this southern summer get-a-way of ours, I was definitely on the lookout for a great maxi.  As I perused the racks at my local Francesca's, the print and fabulous color scheme of this sun-ready dress immediately caught my eye; I knew I just had to have this little number in my suitcase.
Francesca's happens to have some seriously stunning maxi dresses in all different colors and designs right now, so if you are looking for that perfect summer maxi to add to your wardrobe, I would definitely make their store the first stop on your list. {Here is a link to the fabulous maxi dresses they have on their site}
 It doesn't get much easier and chic than this.
The cut-out and crossed straps on the back of this dress are such simple yet beautifully added details.
I can not tell you how obsessed I am with this stunning statement necklace I recently purchased, that I think happens to fluently match my dress to slight perfection, (I just love when I buy accessories that simultaneously fall into perfect harmony with a favorite piece from my closet, don't you?!)
I found this fab piece of jewelry on a darling online boutique I actually discovered via Instagram called Benevolent Jewels. Not only are their items beautifully chic, but they are a business with a big heart. Now through December they are donating 10% of their profits to Patriot PAWS Service Dog Program, which is a wonderful organization that trains service dogs for disabled veterans. So, if you want to add some lovely pieces to your jewelry wardrobe, and help a Texas business donate to a wonderful cause, be sure to check out their site HERE! I know you will find something you just can't live without...and if you feel like following them on Instagram, I thought I would link their account here as well. {BenevolentJewels}
My Shoes are one of my favorite pairs (basically ever made) by Vince Camuto.
My Clutch is from Francescas 
(p.s. They are having a sale on all of their darling handbags right now, 40% off for a limited time. you're welcome.)
