 I love flowy pieces. I especially love flowy dresses. They’re just so effortless, you throw one on with a pair of boots and a cute accessory like a hat or a long chain necklace and you’ve got the most chic boho outfit set to go. Of course there’s also a point when a flowy dress gets boring, or is used too often to hide parts of our bodies. So how do you make flowy dresses interesting again? Here are my thoughts.

Maxi dresses are perfect for Spring. They’re a fun way to wear a dress and experiment with shape and print, while still being covered enough in case it gets chilly. I have had this green and purple print one for a couple years now, and I always break it out come March as my go-to transitional piece.

In the summer I pair it with sandals, but since it’s still February, I went with heeled booties. I’ve also been wearing this scalloped jacket everywhere (as you may have noticed from blog posts and Instagram), and it is just such a great layer to complete this look. I actually felt a very boho chic vibe wearing this outfit, perfect for an outdoor concert of festival. I think partly it had to do with the hair; I switched up my regular look slightly, by twisting a few pieces and pinning them in the back.

Speaking of hair, I’ve really only recently begun to sport the waves, and am still perfecting the technique. But I think it’s a look that not only works great for my face, but is also super stylish and effortless. I want to do a hair post soon, so be on the lookout.

This weekend I was able to go shopping and I picked up the most amazing Zac Posen bag, with the most gorgeous details! I can’t wait to style it, and the color and shape is perfect for Spring and Summer. I hope everyone has a fabulous start to the week, and I’ll definitely be sharing more transitional outfit ideas!
