Black Maxi

Tank- Old Navy, Skirt- Forever 21 (similar), Sandals- Lulu's (same here), Necklace- Baublebar, Hat- Forever 21, Sunglasses- Forever 21, Bag- David Jones

During Memorial Day weekend, I found myself in Old Navy (living across the street from the mall, sometimes that just happens). They had some really great deals going on, but I was trying my best to refrain. One of the pieces I wanted to pick up was this black jersey maxi dress. I could picture it going so well with my new $7 Forever 21 fedora, but I paused for just a second before I grabbed it off the rack. I realized that I have a perfectly good black maxi skirt and tank top that I could use to easily create the same look. Phew. It's amazing what a little bit of creativity can save when it comes to clothes shopping (...but really, pairing a tank and maxi dress isn't a revolutionary combo, it's just that I love the thrill of new clothes so I rarely stop and think of what I already have!).

  4. So smart and love the way you re-created this look with two pieces! I'm the same way. I get so excited about shopping and/or finding a great deal, that I don't always stop to think if I'm replicating something I already own. All black looks perfect with the fedora, and always a fan of adding color with statement necklaces!


  5. Love your outfit! & and the nail art, super cute for Summer!



  6. I love the black on black! And honestly, maxi dresses are not always as flattering as the standard tank and skirt combo - so I am really digging this! And you really are not going to stop unless I buy that fedora, huh. I don't know why I keep fighting the inevitable. Sigh… Carylee | morepeicesofme.com

  7. And of course it's sold out! Ugh! I tried another one, so we'll see how that works! Remind me never to wait next time!

  8. Very pretty!!!!! I love maxi dresses. Great outfit.

  11. I thought it was a dress in the first picture and then saw it was a skirt! I love how you styled it with the hat and that amazing necklace!


  12. That is so great that you recreated the dress with items you already have! I also rarely think of what is already in my closet.... I love that necklace!
