This is a great transition piece to take me from blistering hot outside to cooler weather (cool weather please come soon)! Black sleeveless maxi dress that is cinched at the waist and has a higher neckline in a jersey material. Here are three options: Maxi 1, Maxi 2 & Maxi 3. I'm wearing option #1 and it's only $25.99!

Remember this straw fedora with the pom-pom from the cruise? I love it! It's great for bad hair days or just to spruce up an outfit. How about keeping the sun out of your face? And that pom-pom is such a cute touch.

I have worn these Black Platform Wedges so many times and they are always comfortable to walk in. I love that they give me a little bit of height, (5 foot baby) but allow me to walk like a normal person, since they aren't toooo high.

Let's keep adding to the outfit shall we? This is how we go from "basic" to "outfit:" I added in a Blue & White check, button-up shirt that I tied at the waist. I tie it on the looser side and keep it unbuttoned for a casual look. Next, I added this great Pearl Cluster Necklace to  draw the eye up and add interest.

I'm ready!

One more way to wear this maxi: Add a Floral cardigan and tie-up one side of the bottom. It's cute and youthful. Fun!  

Enjoy your long weekend! Thanks for stopping by ~ Corki
