maxed out.



asos maxi dress; forever 21 aviators; new york & company quilted bag; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet and scarab ring; vintage tribal cuff; secondhand belt and sandals.


i've had this maxi dress ever since i got these brown boots a few months ago, but am just now busting it out. why did i wait so long? it's soft, flowy, perfect...

i'm really having fun playing with different accessories. aviators are one of those things that i normally avoid because i hate nose pieces on sunglasses (they always leave those unflattering red marks), but when i realized how much this oversized pair flattered my face, i couldn't pass them up.

it's weird how my memory is almost photographic - i was looking at the pictures for this outfit while editing them, and then i instantly remembered that one of my favorite bloggers, lena, wore pretty much exactly the same thing back in april. i am most inspired by scandinavian street style, so it actually doesn't surprise me a bit that i put together such a similar look as hers :)


i leave you with this twitpic from yesterday.
i have the weekend off, and i'm definitely going to enjoy it as much as possible.
hope you do too!

karen - wow amazing karen, thank you :)

georgia - thank you; i never thought they suit me!

star-light - thank you! i have a black one too of course :)

elora - so did a bunch of other people on twitter; that's why i posted it on here! thank you :)

ari - definitely try an oversized pair; they might just be what you're looking for!

gracie - i am 5'7". the dress is kind of long. i got it in a UK size 8 (which is a US size 4). i bet it you went up a size, it'd be the perfect length!

fashion chalet - thank you erika :)

redhead - thank you! and you're welcome; i cannot get enough of fashionology.nl either!
