Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was amazing... I went to the beach with a few of my girlfriends! We saw the movie A Fault in Our Stars (and cried), relaxed on the beach, and went out to dinner. We had such a good time (it was also a wonderful break from studying)! Today's post is all about the summer maxi skirt. Here are three ways I have styled this comfortable and versatile piece. I love it paired with a subtle cropped top or color blocked with another bold hue! Let me know which look is your favorite! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Summer Brights...























Dress: ModCloth (on sale!)|Sandals: Target (old, similar/similar/similar)|Bag: Loft (save/splurge)|Rings: Zara (save/save/splurge)|Hair Extensions: Bellami Bellissima 220g 22" Chocolate Brown (use code Storm5 for $5 off!)

I wore this look this past weekend while out and about exploring Downtown Greenville, SC. I grew up in North Carolina, about an hour away, and I can't believe I have never been to downtown Greenville! It is a really cool, walkable area with lots of great restaurants and shops. (I highly recommend Spill the Beans for coffee/ice cream!) I'm glad I wore this dress because it definitely feels like summer here in the South! I decided to paired it with some gladiator-inspired sandals and a neutral cross-body bag to dress it down a bit for day. I love the bright colors, feminine shape, and floral print!  Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think!

I wore this look out for lunch with my Dad in Asheville. If you every visit Asheville, you have to stop by Well-Bred Bakery & Cafe! It is my absolute favorite spot for coffee, lunch, or a sweet treat! (The kale salad and vegan chocolate chip cookie are my favorites!) I decided to remix one of my favorite floral dresses and wear it as a skirt by tying a chambray top over it. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend and official start of summer!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Father's Day! I was lucky to get to spend mine with my Dad and make him dinner! I knowww I've worn this cropped top so much lately, (this makes it three times on the blog, see others here and here) but I just love it that much! The delicate lace and sheer details give it that feminine, boho vibe that I am loving for summer! Be sure to let me know what you think!
