Colorblocking to the (Max)i

Another hot day called for another easy breezy maxi dress. I really love this dress because of the color blocking and the subtle chevron print. I wore this out to movies in the park (they were showing The Help) and listening to the world's worst blue grass band. No, seriously all they did was sing about people dying and other terribly depressing topics. The band was awful but the movie was great -- and the book was even better!
Outfit Details:
Maxi Dress: Target (this spring) // Earrings: Express // Sunnies: Loft
Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: gift // Flip Flops: Tory Burch
Anyone else slightly disappointed when you read a book then watch the movie only to find it doesn't live up to your expectations?
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all have a lovely week!

  7. I love this maxi dress, you look so adorable! I'm almost always disappointed by movies that were originally books. But every once in awhile, the movie gets it right.. like The Devil Wears Prada! :)

  11. The movie wasn't as good as the book, but that didn't stop me from crying loudly in the movie theater. How embarrassing!

  14. I think it is pretty typical that a movie usually doesn't live up to the book's expectations! There's more details in words usually and action in a movie moves so fast! Great dress!

  17. I think the books are ALWAYS better than the movie. ;) Ohhh, and I just hate it when they put the actors from the movie on the cover of the book! Grrr. Hahaha. Love your maxi dress, isn't Target the best? Love!

  18. Great dress! I love your casual but chic weekend look - the colorblock dress with the simple but interesting earrings and your great ponytail (seriously jealous of your volume!) are all perfect together for a casual weekend outing :)

  26. Love your dress! Maxi dresses are so comfortable! I liked the movie too but I also believe the book is always better :) I love your David Yurman ring by they way! Especially since it's yellow!

  32. What a great find from Target. I've not bought maxi dresses from there before, they always seem so long and I am too lazy to get them altered.

  43. I'm an English major so maybe I'm just biased, but I think the book is always better. This is such an interesting pattern for a maxi; very cool. :)

  44. Hey girl! Thanks for following me : ) Love your outfit!

    This always happens to me, whenever I read a book and then watch the movie, it's never quite as good as the book. What a fun thing to do, I would love to watch a movie in a park, reminds be of the movie The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez! :)
