Today is Thursday and I am sure everyone is twiddling their thumbs or tapping their pencils against their desk as their eyes navigate between a computer screen and the slow moving clock, but do not fret. The weekend is a day away and that means fun, food and friends are near in sight. As you count down the hours until your work day is over and prepare for the weekend, a few questions may arise: what will I do, where will I go, who will accompany me and, most importantly, what will I wear?
This Fashionista is ready for any weekend activity in this summer time staple, the maxi dress. Whether you decide to pencil in a girls’ night out, a baseball game and beers or a casual date night with your beau, you are sure to be comfortable and ready for a night of fun in a maxi dress. This Fashionista chose a pastel colored maxi dress with nude, pink and purple tones. The muted colors and light weight fabric are perfect for beating the sweltering summer heat. The unique color blocking pattern and elastic waist give the dress structure, while the high-low wrapped skirt give a feminine flowy feel. She chose to pair her look with a gold bracelet, watch, a few stacked rings and round laser-cut earrings. Stacked rings and a watch are simple everyday accessories that can turn your outfit up a notch. Her metallic T-strap sandals with silver beaded accents are a cool way to give contrast to her outfit and mix metals. Most people are afraid to mix metals, but if done properly can give any outfit flare and stand out in a crowd. A tousled ponytail and mixed matched nail polish complete her effortless summer time look.
No matter what your weekend activities are or what you decide should be your weekend wear, remember that a smile is the best accessory.
