What I am Wearing - Styling a Maxi dress

When the weather starts to warm up, I love to wear dresses!  The only problem is that my legs are still pale from the winter...enter the maxi dress!  I love maxi dresses because they cover my legs and look great on all women.  Maxi dresses are also very comfortable and can be dressed up or down with shoes and accessories.



I picked up this grey and white strapless dress last year from Old Navy.  I usually do not wear strapless dresses because I feel like I am always fussing with the top, but the elastic top keeps it in place pretty well.  I also like the drawstring waist that gives the dress structure.

I added a white denim jacket (from GAP) over it to make it church appropriate.  I kept the look casual with white t-strap sandals (from TJ Maxx) and simple silver jewelry.

I have seen several ladies on Instagram knot the bottom of their maxi dress, which I think is a fun look, especially if the dress is a little long!  It also gives you a different way to wear it.

The jewelry is from Rocksbox.  If you have not heard of this, it is a jewelry subscription service that allows you the opportunity to try designer jewelry with the option to buy it.  Members pay a flat rate of $19/month to get access to a personalized rotating closet of designer jewelry, sent in sets of three at a time.  When you are ready for some new baubles, you just send back the pieces you do not want to buy in the prepaid envelope.  

I love the style of this necklace.  You get the layered look without having to worry about multiple chains getting tangled up.

These studs are really pretty and understated and would be perfect to pair with a dangly earring if you have multiple piercings like I do.

As a member, you can swap out your pieces as many times as you’d like each month.  Check back next month to see what new pieces I received!  If you want to try Rocksbox free for one month, use my code maryhunnxoxo.

Disclosure:  I received a free 3-month trial of Rocksbox for review, but all opinions are my own.

Which piece is your favorite?

  2. The print on that maxi is beautiful and I've done that where I tied a knot on the bottom, but haven't in awhile and need to try it again! That necklace you received from Rocksbox is gorgeous!
