If I have one signature piece, it's probably the maxi dress. Once the weather warrants it, I pretty much live in them. They're perfect summer wear in my opinion and very easily remixed. In fact, you've seen the maxi dress I'm rockin' today before, but I've added a fun addition to the ensemble. Sometimes all it takes is switching out an accessory or a pair of foot candy to give an outfit a fresh look. Hey, we're busy mamas. We need to stock our closet with things that can be worn time and time again,...

Tie Dye Maxi Dress

You may think the time to wear maxi dresses is winding down, but that's not the case for this girl! Not only do they easily transition to early fall with the addition of a denim jacket for instance, but they're a must have for getaways. In fact, Megan and I just got back from a girlfriends' getaway in Arizona and I, of course, packed some of my favorite maxis, along with the perfect statement necklace, to take along for the ride.As you've probably noticed, tie dye is kinda my jam and this teal tie dye...

Shopping with Soma

Soma Maxi

When we were in Arizona a few weeks ago, I wore a new maxi dress I had picked up from the store Soma and paired it with my Rebecca Minkoff Leo clutch from ShopBop. This was our first afternoon in Arizona and I can see the jet lag in my eyes, ha! When I'm shopping with Soma, I typically only think of just under garments and sleepwear but after purchasing and wearing a few of their dresses I'm loving Soma as a new go-to for day looks as well. I've been pleasantly surprised at just how soft the material is and...
