Happy Friday!! I am beat this week and pretty much disorganized. Of course, I’m sure we all love the extra day in the weekend, but it has seriously has me mixed up. I couldn’t be happy the weekend is here. It’s like I need a day to get my life together… or at least try!
You won’t see much black in my closet.. I know pretty crazy! Unlike colors or white, black washes me out! I look too pale. So to see my excitement when we received a shipment with these fabulous black maxi dress inside. I knew immediately I had to keep one. The material is stretch, but not see through. It has a slit on one side and the back is strappy, prefect for a bright summer bralette! I love how versatile this dress is, it can go for the daytime or a night out, a casual or cocktail wear.. possibilities are endless!
I kept this outfit really simple with a blue statement necklace, a denim jacket and brown wedges (similar options down below). There are those summer days when you don’t want stack on accessories. I feel like its a combination of the warm weather and the fact that you don’t want a lot of pieces on… because it will make you feel even more hotter.
What colors washes you out?
I am meeting with some girls tonight over dinner and lets just say its been a while since this mama had a night off. Hope you have lovely weekend!

Thank you Jennie!!
Love your maxi, Melissa! You can never go wrong with black anything and I love how you’ve styled it! Really beautiful!
That is very true! Thanks for stopping by Mary
Wow such a classy look! I love your statement necklace and I adore that denim jacket. Perfect layering piece and it makes the look not so dressed up! Love it! Happy weekend!
Thank you Ruth! A denim jacket is a layering piece I wear all year round! But specially to create a casual look.
Mel, this dress is gorgeous! And you are definitely not washed in the black. Maybe it’s the gorgeous blue necklace up near your face that adds the perfect pop of color! And of course, your denim jacket adds a nice amount of color, too. Great look! Have a wonderful weekend.
Aw thanks Shelbee!! This necklace is a new fav of mine, a pop of blue definitely brightens up my look!
You definitely don’t look washed out in this black dress! You look amazing and it fits you so well! Happy Weekend, gorgeous!

Lovely black maxi dress! It looks great with blue and your denim jacket. On colors which wash you out, I’ve just had my colors done and for me it’s anything pale! Gail
Thank you Gail! Pale can be super tricky on some skin tones, hopefully it isn’t one of your favs
