Greetings, and hello Monday! I’m back with the 2nd installment in my summer style series with Cyndi Spivey, and Deborah Boland from Fabulous After 40 is joining us today. We each styled a different maxi dress for summer.
Deb’s style is classic and elegant with a modern twist, and her mission is to provide practical fashion and beauty advice for women in their 40s and beyond. I’ve learned a lot from her posts, and I’m sure you will too. Definitely check out her blog and subscribe, if you haven’t before.
For today’s look, I’m wearing a casual black scoop dress by Z Supply.
This dress is perfect for vacation or casual days running errands, and I’ve even worn it as an elevated bathing suit coverup when hosting family by the pool.
It came from Evereve, and it runs true to size; I’m in the small. It’s 100% cotton and has a really nice, drapey fit.
I paired it with these double strap slide sandals, also from Evereve. They’re made of all rubber and synthetic materials, making them both affordable and also perfect for the beach or pool. I love the squared-off toe and the pattern on the footbed. They’re true to size, or size up if in between; I have the size 8, and I often take a 7.5 in slides.
Since I styled this dress more for casual wear than poolside, I added some fun jewelry. The brushed silver teardrop earrings and this double strand coin necklace bring the eye up towards my face. I also wore my favorite oversized sunnies.
Unfortunately, mine has sold out, but there are a lot of other pretty styles. This one is very similar, and it would look especially nice with black.
I totally forgot to bring an appropriate bag to the shoot, so Alison lent me this snake print tote from Anthro. (It’s an older style, so I don’t have a link.)
