It's cooled off a bit in these parts, and while I could do with more sun than we've had, I'm glad to break out my good ol' denim jacket with my summer dresses, and without fear of melting in the heat!

Maxi dress - TJ Maxx / Blue tee (under dress) - Gap / Denim jacket - Theory (eBayed) / Sandals - Payless

I've had this dress for a few years now. It always felt it was a rather loud print when I first bought it (though that obviously didn't stop me), but now that it's on-trend, I'm happy to get continued wear out of it. I feel so boho-batik-chic! It has tons of colors in the print (orange, cream, purple, and multiple shades of blue), so it's fun to play with accessories. As with most strapless dresses, too, I pair a tee of some color under the dress. Not only can it be another fun way to play with color, but it makes me a little more likely to wear strapless dresses at all! (Yep, sans denim jacket, even.)

Handbag - Tano "Boogie Bucket" in Grape

With the exception of this new necklace of mine, I must admit that this is the way I most often wear it, though...

Necklace - Urban Outfitters / Earrings - Maurices / Ring - Banana Republic (eBayed)


  1. Ok, GORGEOUS. I love this dress, I wouldn't have even realized that that was a tee underneath if you hadn't said it! I love how you topped this with the denim jacket, it keeps it casual but still looks so pulled together. I love how jackets do that! And the necklace...sigh. You have such great jewelry!

  2. girl, YOU have great jewelry! ooh, and there's an idea for blog-exchange feature! how about some jewelry swappage?

  3. i bought this at YOUR TJ Maxx, if you recall! =))
