WIW: Work Maxi

I bought a really cute maxi last week that I've had my eye on for a few months.  I almost missed it though, as the last available on the rack was my size! 

It's perfect for the weekend with the birks, but I really wanted to wear it today.  A jacket was OUT because it's 80% humidity and a 90+ degree day...positively swampy outside!  All my cardigans ran away (they're all hiding somewhere), and on the fly, I pulled this chambray top and tried this.  Luckily, it worked, and cinched in at my waistline like I wanted for the office.  I've had many compliments today, and I'm glad I went the "extra mile" at the last minute and went for the heels.

I also attached a pic of the dress without the cinch, it's fabulously wide!

    Glad you got your dress. I like it with the top.

    Those colors and pattern look really great on you!  I especially like the addition of that turquoise necklace.

    Love it! How creative to wear the chambray top instead of a cardigan. The pattern is amazing, and you look enviously tall. 

    I just clicked through to your blog. Have you ever done a blog post about your head scarves? I wear these to workout or to the beach, started that awhile ago - hats just never stay on my head in the wind, and I just got really really tired of having sunburn on my scalp. So I am always looking for theses sorts of scarves, if you've got a source or any tips, please let me know!

    Fun to add extra detail with a tied top.

    Fab maxi, and I really like the chambray topper. Perfect outfit for the dog days of summer
