My gold maxi dress is just what this bleak day demanded. ( bleak weather and news headlines )
Weather projections are so unreliable lately! When I checked the forecast the night before a “real feel” of 73 was listed. However, mid-fifties temps and wind were served up instead. How happy was I to barrow my friend faux fox vest for this outfit!
Bold gold: color therapy!
Yes, I know the dress reads beige, but the gown has gold sequins and feels golden to me.
All items in this outfit are either old or borrowed. I am wearing mostly “shop your closet” outfits these days. The gold maxi dress was bought locally from a mom and pop store 4 years ago. These cool platforms are 5 years old and are more comfortable than they look!
Being resourceful, I chose a beaded belt as a necklace. It offered warmth and fun fringe at the bottom.
The silver satin adds some cool hues to my bold gold maxi dress.
Headbands have been trending for a while. To that I just say: Hah! This slow fashion blogger has literally been wearing them for 55 years. My braided headband is my favorite.
However, today white buds with a glint of shimmer adorn this 3-year-old piece. A full on flower crown is just not for me. A detail shot is below. By the way, I am loving the live focus option on my old Samsung Note.
Lets looks at the weather forecast !
Sharing clothes with friends is a great way to use your wardrobe more conscientiously.
If you barrow something, then you do not have to buy it. Think Rent the Runway, for free! Added bonus: good vibes!
Styling tip for Maxi dresses –
If a dress is too long, you can sometimes knot the bottom. This adds a fun texture, and makes it so that a taller friend, sister, or daughter can also wear this maxi. Can you see the knots now?
Romantic maxi dresses are trending, especially those floral numbers that read boho lux.
Ruffles and smocking details are in full bloom as well.
Consider me fan of this sort of dress. As well, I love a simple white maxi skirt, worn with a poet type blouse. Maxi skirts are especially versatile: one could wear it with a simple tee for a minimalist vibe. This is another look that I enjoy .
THIS WEEK, SAME OLE:
Celebrations and fun social outings help balance out the sadness of loved ones being ill. Dressing up seems a good way to take my mind off the news. No, I will not quit watching! This is not the time to tune out. I will, however, keep a good and balanced perspective. More than anything, gratitude fills my heart. Yes to focusing on that!
With that, I will close and wish you many things to be grateful for! XO, Elle
