I’ve had this thrifted black maxi dress for years now. I’ve worn it to a few events and every time I style it I remember how comfortable and versatile it is. It’s one of those all purpose dresses that I’m so glad I have in my closet. Every girl need an all purpose dress (or 2) in their wardrobe, right?
I love how flowy and free this dress is and the lightweight material is an added bonus. For a Sunday afternoon filled with errands, a walk in the park and possibly dinner with hubs, this is the perfect outfit. The sandals give the dress a more relaxed feel and the gorgeous necklace, purchased this weekend at a jewelry fair in Gaithersburg, MD adds the perfect boho chic element. When I saw the necklace hanging there, I knew I had to add it to my collection. Before I could even think to purchase it, hubs had surprised me and purchased it as a birthday gift. How thoughtful?!
The dress is also perfect for year round styling. With a cardigan and closed toe flats, or even a pair of ankle boots, this dress is fall-ready. I can even picture a ankle length duster or kimono being worn over the dress. While that may hide the ruffle and lady-like detailing, it’s still adds style and functionality to the garment.
So tell me, what do you think about my flowy black maxi dress? Do you own an all purpose dress? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today and until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!

Whitney, great dress! I love the ruffles, it adds character to the dress for sure. I am definitely feeling that necklace though. Great comfortable “go to” look.

I love your dress and I really like how the turquoise accessories pop against the black color. I’ve been wearing maxi dresses and skirts almost all summer! It’s just been too hot to have on anything else.

I admire your confidence in mix matching your outfit and how you wear it. Totally natural. Especially you took your statement necklace into a new level with what you wear. I remember my friend told me that wearing maxis would such be a hassle. I totally disagree because it took me comfort on wearing it. I don’t know if you’d agree on me but being confident is just being comfortable on how you wear it.
