I went into Marshall’s two weeks ago looking for a maxi dress….and walked out with this.  Something about it just called to me from the rack.  I picked up and put it back at least three times before I finally said, oh, why not and took it into the dressing room.

Turns out it’s almost the same cut as my favorite black dress (complete with pockets) so why wouldn’t I love it?

I had to attend a work luncheon today so I thought it would be the perfect way to have a little fun on a hot, humid Chicago summer day.

The necklace I paired it with is actually a much shorter strand (seen here) so how did I get it to be longer?  By inserting a silver ankle bracelet between the clasps!  I actually do this with a few of my necklaces to make them more versatile.

And speaking of versatile, I’m looking forward to finding more fun ways to wear this dress this summer!
