Fashion and Beauty are a state of mind...

Maxi, Marc Bouwer, Marvelous!

Loving this Marc Bouwer print maxi dress and it’s so perfect for work.  This dress was transformed into work appropriate.

A maxi dress work appropriate?  Oh yes very much so and you can do it. It’s all about the mixing and the matching.

I like to be pulled in at the waist and nothing works better than a small width croc-patent black belt.  The belt worked so well to pull this outfit together. I have a black camisole underneath the dress because the armhole of the maxi is a little low for work.  By adding the camisole I could take the blazer off if I was hot and I would be totally fine.  The blazer was a great thrift gift from my mother-in-law (perfect layering piece). The blazer just so happens to pick up the color in the maxi dress.  Totally cool!
When I took this picture it was warm; but the temperature dropped quite a bit that night.
The maxi dress is so comfortable but so CHIC and comfortable.

Comfortable is often considered a bad word because it’s considered frumpy, but you can be comfortable and pulled together at the same time.

Remember that it may take a little time finding what works for your body shape but it’s worth it. I have to take clothes and mix and match to see what’s most flattering because it’s about what looks good on me
and not what happens to be a trend at a certain point and time.

So start thinking out of the box and experiment with patterns and prints.

This maxi dress combo is one of my favorite outfits.

Confidence booster

Feeling good starts from within, no matter what you have on you have to feel good about yourself on the inside first to project that confidence.

      Here in Missouri we have had horrific storms and tornado warnings so I know that Father God has already stopped these storms in their tracks In Jesus Name.

      Hi,

      Actually it’s a blend of smooth polyester. Easy to care for dress too.
