I couldn't let the summer go by without wearing this maxi dress I picked up last year at Crossroads Trading Co. It's so flowy and comfortable to wear. The only problem is that since i'm short or petite would be the better term, I almost ALWAYS have to wear heels or else it drags. Sucks, right? I normally would just put a belt on and pull it up a little bit but- with this particular dress, I couldn't do it because of the material. The dress is also a tube top so it had a "break" from where the tube material ended. The point is, it would've looked weird with a belt.
I obviously had to layer something on top. Being that it was a tube, I needed my shoulders "hidden". I thought a denim vest would have been too predictable, so instead I picked a denim button down. What can I say? I love denim. Duh. The denim tied button down worked perfectly because it allowed me to pull the dress up a little bit higher and pair it with a tiny heeled sandal. Sweet!

How cute are my accessories?! I was able to work with a GREAT website which carries handmade and independent designs! When 9th & Elm reached out to me, I was so excited. I love anything handmade and one of a kind. My "Suma" necklace took a little long to get to me but it was worth the wait. The exact necklace isn't currently available BUT if you check out the site here you can find so many more personalized jewelry! My tribal watch and wrap bracelet (below) is also from 9th & Elm.
