Remix your Maxi

Ahhh another hot day where the idea of clothes seem unbearable! I feel like I've been practically living in my black maxi dress because its so light and airy, so I have to keep coming up with different ways to remix it. Here I layered a bright tank over the dress and cinched it with a belt. 
With that being said, I think I've done a pretty good job of giving this dress a completely new look. You would never realize I wore this same dress last week shown here : )
Outfit Details:
Ombre Tank: Old Navy // Maxi Dress: New York and Co. (still in stores now)
Key Necklace: Kay's (gift from D) // Belt: Target // Watch: Michael Kors // Sandals: Payless
 Details of one of my favorite necklaces that D got me for our anniversary last year : )
 Have you been finding yourself wearing and remixing the same pieces this summer? If so, what?

  18. Such an awesome way to switch it up....I'm doing that a lot with my royal blue skirt from zara, some days I throw the jean jacket, other days different tops. I just got a purple one and plan on doing the same : )

  22. Great idea to wear something over it to make it look like a maxi skirt instead of dress! I have a black maxi too that I love but don't want to look like I wear it all the time! I'll def be trying something like this! Thanks for the tip :)

  27. Beautiful remix! I know, it's all about finding new ways to style our same summer fashions. I have been finding that layering tops/shirts over dresses is the way to go :)

  32. What a great idea! Most of my maxi dresses aren't basic, but I do have a camel colored one that I could play up with some different tops. Thanks for the inspiration!
