Water Colors + WIWW

IMG_0068In my opinion, there are very few easier silhouettes to pull of than a pretty and slim maxi dress. They key to making a maxi dress look sophisticated rather than so-so is all in the fabric. Let me translate the language of textiles to you. Jersey equals casual, chiffon equals beachy and silky means elevated. I opted for the later of those three for my college graduation party, but glammed it up a bit with gold details in the belt and clutch. Fuss-free sandals allowed me to kick back and socialize all day long comfortably.unnamed (1)IMG_0084 IMG_0104 IMG_0099 IMG_0091 IMG_0066 IMG_0095
