I started a series on Monday called BACK TO BASICS.
See that first post HERE.
I found this inspiration photo on Pinterest, and I knew that it would be super easy to recreate and a slam dunk for my Back to Basics Outfit #2!
Talk about an effortless outfit!
All you need is a maxi, a denim jacket, and a necklace!
|inspiration picture from the darling Audrey at Putting Me Together!|
I’m wearing an x-small in the maxi, a small in the jacket, and the shoes run a little small so I recommend ordering up a 1/2 size (I’m wearing a 7).
Concerning the dress, a petite might have been better on me, but they didn’t have a petite in store, and I wanted it immediately. The regular length is good for me when I’m wearing wedges, but it definitely puddles on the floor when wearing flip flops. But I don’t mind the puddling, so I’m good with that!
When ordering the dress, make sure you have it on “regular”, “tall”, or “petite” depending on your preference. For some reason the link defaults to “tall”.
The maxi dress pictured below takes you to the black dress, but for some reason it won’t show the picture of the black dress?!?

Here’s what you need to know.

Click HERE for the wedges.
If they were fully stocked, know this, I would be naming them a MUST HAVE!
DANG YOU NORDSTROM!
If they have them in your size (I suggest ordering a 1/2 size up), get them.
I know a couple of the reviews aren’t totally shining, but I absolutely LOVE these wedges.
I’ve worn them twice now since receiving them (one time I had to walk for a bit, the other time I gave a 1-hour presentation and stood the entire time), and I thought they were extremely comfy!
Although the sizes are going fast in this “cork”…there are plenty left in grey and coral!
Again, I sized up 1/2 a size and am wearing a 7.
Back to the dress….
I could go on and on and on about the above dress BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME.
The material is OH SO SOFT, it drapes beautifully, and it makes me look taller and skinnier than I actually am.
Here are some other Old Navy maxi options:
If you prefer to order from Nordstrom, click HERE for this option that’s ON SALE!
It’s an x-small, so I would suggest sizing down.
I’ve received some great feedback from readers about these LUSH MAXI DRESSES on facebook. Everybody seems to be a fan, many of you have more than 1, and everybody agrees to order a size down. I’ve also received the following tip from lots of you:
BE SURE TO DRY CLEAN ONLY.
