Style Files Vol 5 | Ombre Maxi

I love, love, love a good maxi dress.  I think they are perfect to year round because they look super cute alone but also paired with a fun leather jacket or blazer as well.

This is one of those maxi dresses that could work year round. I love that you can pair it flats for a casual look during the day but you could easily dress it up for a wedding or night out with heels and fun jewelry!

What I am Wearing:

Nic + Zoe Maxi | Rebecca Minkoff Purse | Baublebar Ring | Tkees | Le Specs Sunglasses

My fringe purse has been on constant rotation lately.  It comes in about 10 different colors.   

I am carrying the sandstone color.  It is the perfect neutral to go with any outfit. I like that you can carry it as a cross body or also as a clutch.  

Both sides of the dress have a slight side split.  The dress is also fully lined.  As far as sizing it runs TTS.  I am wearing a small.  

These sunglasses are so awesome and under $70! I love the lighter frame with the mirrored lens.

I adore the pattern on this dress, it reminds me of an old Tibi pattern but the price is about half of that! The dress is from the Nic + Zoe line carried at Nordstrom.  They have some really cute stuff at a good price point.  

It also comes in these two blouse versions as well.

Tank | Tunic

I styled the dress 2 different ways to give you a more casual option and a few dressier options.  Keep in mind for the dressier option I would pair it with just a necklace or statement earrings, probably not both together!

All the jewelry pictured below is under $60 too!

    You always look so great! I love your style. I would LOOOVE for you to do a post on your fitness or workout routine. I know you eat really healthfully, but you've mentioned Matt is totally meat free. I kind of want to go meat free after I have this baby. Did he do it for health reasons or just want to do it?
