Style Files Vol 14 | The Maxi Dress

Aug 9, 2016

Do you ever find a dress that just instantly makes you happy??  Well this dress does just that for me.  I bought this dress before our Summer Vacation and it has quickly become a favorite. 

I love that it can easily be dressed up or down.

DVF Dress | Sandals | Bracelets Similar | 

  I always love DVF, her pieces are timeless.  They are not cheap but they are great investment pieces to add to your closet.  They never go out of style.  I have a DVF maxi dress I bought for our honeymoon 9 years ago that I still wear and love and know this dress will be the same. 

These lace up sandals are another Summer favorite.  They won’t break the bank and go with everything.  I have worn mine with jeans, shorts and dresses.  I am wearing the tan suede but they also come in black and gold.  Size up a half size as they do run on the small side.


Sizing wise I am wearing a 4 in the maxi dress.  I found it ran TTS.

I love the vibrant print on my dress, the green is even prettier in person.  It also comes in this shorter style.

I rounded up a few other Maxi’s that would be perfect to dress up or down.  Scroll through to see them all.
