Hat: Found in a little store in Chico, California / Bag: Bought on a trip to Morocco
A couple weeks ago I got to partake in a really fun shoot with the brand, Donna Morgan
, which is a great line of dresses that all retail under $200. The pieces are extremely versatile and easy to style for all sorts of occasions. So to help demonstrate this, I picked two dresses and styled them a bunch of different ways showing how to take a look from day to night just by simply swapping out a few simple items and accessories. One of the pieces I styled was this colorful maxi
, which is perfect for the end of summer. What’s great about this piece is, although it’s super cute on it’s own with it’s playful pattern and beaded neckline, I wanted to change it up a bit for day time looks, so I opted for more casual accessories such as neutral tones to keep relaxed unfussy. For my evening looks I chose white pieces to layer with, which I think adds an immediate elevated feel and instantly takes a simple maxi to the next level.

Remember when I said I went a little crazy at J.Crew? I just couldn’t help myself, there were just so many cute items to pick up and add to my closet for spring. But in order to make this shopping spree worth my while, I decided to combine and remix a few of items I bought in a bunch of different ways, so I will be rolling out those looks throughout the week. Stay tuned!

I recently went a little nuts at J.Crew in order to give my closet a bit of a spring refresh, and ended up coming home with quite a few new cute things. I generally dress fairly casually when running errands and working from home, but sometimes I want to look a bit more polished than usual. These pants are the silkiest, most comfortable pair I’ve worn in a long time and I love swishing around in them – they have great movement, unlike a lot of suit pants I’ve tried in the past. I decided to pair them with a more casual piece on top and this camo sweatshirt was the perfect thing to dress the overall look down a bit. I kept my accessories muted by opting for grays and silvers and topped it all off with a bright coral lip.
