Summer Maxi with Lace Detail

Even though the summer season is nearing it's end, maxi dresses are in no way on their way out of the fashion world.
Probably the easiest way to look and feel chic is to throw on a maxi dress. This one is from Marshall's and I'm seriously obsessed with all the details on this little number. It's such a simple design yet the pop of color under the bust line and the soft touch of the lace trimmed out in the skirt both add such a unique and fun texture to this look. I love it because I feel so put together, yet all I had to do was throw on a dress. This dress is a recent fab find from my favorite Marshall's store, so be sure to stop by your local Marshall's if you'd like to add this maxi to your wardrobe, or find similar styles HERE and HERE.
I didn't want to over exaggerate my already simplistic dress so I went with simple accessories. I added a pair of gold earrings and a solid gold cuff both from Forever 21. Find a similar cuff HERE.
Both my booties and my clutch are from Francesca's. I picked up these beloved booties last season, but you can find a similar pair at Nordstrom HERE and HERE.

Modern Day Ballerina

Being the girly-girl I am, I can't help but love wearing a soft and feminine outfit any chance I get. This ballerina-inspired dress gives me a hint of nostalgia every time I put it on as it totally takes me back to the days of my childhood when "twirl-worthy" dresses were all I'd ever insist on wearing ( I will admit, I still like to twirl around every now and then.)  If you ask me, pink chiffon and white lace are the ultimate classics when it comes to femininity. 

Both the dress and the lace crop top I layered over the top are from Forever 21.
This deliciously pink statement necklace is also from Forever 21.  I bought this bejeweled item for less than $15; thus proving no matter what your budget, you can still rock the ever on-trend statement piece.
My clutch is from Francesca's; basically the only place I go when I'm in need of a small item like this one to stash my cash and lipstick. Francesca's always has an adorable handbag at an even more attractive price; this one, like most of their clutches, was only $34.
Since I was savvy and saved on most of my outfit, I splurged on the shoes. These nude patent pumps are by Christian Louboutin.

Comfy and Casual: The Summertime Essential

You know that one outfit of the season that never fails you no matter what your day might bring? Well this little number is it for me. Those staple pieces that sit in my closet during the spring and summer months that will always be my trusty, go-to attire on days when I want to look my best, but I have no clue what to wear.  No matter how many times I've worn it this season (which has been quite a few) it still feels so fresh and comfy I never seem to tire of it.
I found this fabulous blue and white sleeveless wrap at Marshall's. Yes, another fab find, and the same day I got my hands on the adorable jumpsuit in my last post! See it HERE...Can I just say I was one happy shopper that day.
The ripped skinny jeans are from Forever 21.
My necklace is by Waxing Poetic. The bracelets I'm donning are an array of my favorite pieces I wear religiously from my personal jewelry collection. I wear my beaded Seasonal Whispers bracelets on my left wrist with my gold Kate Spade watch just about every single day of my life.

  My bag is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and my shoes are by Gianni Bini. 

Thanks for stopping by today my sweet and lovely friends!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and an even more wonderful month of August.
