Monday Mingle: Vacation Wear


My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay.

Remember that cruise Megan and I went on? Well, we had plenty of occasions to get dressed up in the evening and you know this girl brought all her favorite maxis! I’m sure you’ve heard my hard sell on maxis before, but just in case you’re new here…Get ready to find out why maxi dresses are always a part of my vacation wear!


Maxi dresses are my signature piece for so may reasons. They’re ridiculously comfortable, yet can totally be dressed to the nines. They’re, hands down, my go-to vacation dress and for today’s featured look, I rocked a maxi that was not only comfy and pretty, but a killer deal. I scored this little number at Target during one of their buy one get one 50% off promotions and the cost per wear ration came out in my favor the first week. I definitely wore it more than once that week.  Haha! This time I paired it with that handmade statement necklace that I rocked a few weeks ago. And speaking of statement necklaces…


I would love it if you checked out my eBayHow to Wear a Statement Necklace” guide. I shared some of my favorite ways to sport statement necklaces and even included a fun collection of neck candy for you shopping pleasure!

So, what’s your go-to vacation piece lovelies? Are maxis part of your vacation wear? If you have any fun Labor Day getaway plans, you should consider throwing a maxi or two into your bag!

And now that you’ve seen my look, head over to Momtrends and Thirty Something Fashion to see what they have in store for you! You can link up your own style posts at Thirty Something Fashion this week!

    I generally keep it low key with necklaces because things around my neck are a little uncomfortable for me.

    I’m a sucker for a maxi dress and a statement necklace too. And FYI I will forever be jealous of that Baublebar necklace. 🙂

    Now that you mention it, I may just toss a maxi into my weekend bag. I don’t wear them a lot, but I wore one last week and it really was comfy!

    I personally love the new trend of statement making necklaces. When done properly they really add to an outfit.
