Sensible Stylista

Draped Maxis FTW

Channeling my inner goddess for today's editorial-like post!  I'm sure y'all have picked up on this by now, but I have a serious thing for flowy dresses.  I purchased this gorgeous drape maxi at the BCBG Factory Outlet a while back, and it's a closet fave for sure.  For today's OOTD, I styled it with a light knit and lace-up sandals for a romantic look and accessorized with a slew of my favorite Trollbeads jewelry.
Other maxis I'm currently lusting for:

I was really looking forward to attending, but I was too sick to go.  That week was super stressful, and I was functioning on like, 4 hours of sleep.  I was hitting up 2-3 events each night so by Friday, I was totally out.  I came down with a severe cold so I needed a day to recover.  I really do hope they come back soon though!  Their kicks always ooze quality, and the fact that they're socially responsible is just the cherry on top.

Find of the Day: The Tee Shirt Dress ($29)

I'm pumped to tell you guys all about my latest find on SS.  I recently purchased this online at ASOS for $29.  If you're a fan of the lace-up trend + comfortable garb, this is an absolute must-have.  As you all know, I'm all about dresses because they're quick!  I know that's a strange adjective to use when describing clothing, but what I really mean to say is quick to style.  You don't really have to do much to look cute.  
If it's warm out, simply wear the dress with cute sandals and grab your fave investment bag or everyday tote before walking out the door.  If it's cooler out, throw on a jean or moto jacket with leggings and boots, and you're good to go.  The fit's relaxed so you don't have to worry about sucking in, and the lightweight fabric's made up of viscose, polyester, and elastane.  I got a size XS, and it fits me perfectly.  Make sure to comment below if you have any questions regarding the piece!

Earning Stripes on the Daily

I'm super excited to tell you guys all about my new dress courtesy of Dezzal.  I actually partnered up with them on SS not too long ago - I'm not sure if y'all remember, but this two-tone dress was from their online boutique.  For those of you wondering, their collection is indeed legit.  In addition to selling pieces created by talented in-house designers, they carry the merchandise of carefully-selected brands.
I centered today's OOTD around my new mini-dress.  I totally fell head over heels in love with the design at first sight.  The ruffle is too cute, and what can I say? I'm a sucker for empire waists!  I mean, can you really blame me though? They create the illusion of a killer hourglass figure and elongate my stems like whoa.
To top off my look, I carried a pale orange crossbody from Coach (an old factory outlet buy) and threw on gold wedges to capitalize on the whole casual vibe.


Feeling slightly scandalous sharing this photo, but whatevs!  The wind was blowing slightly too hard that day, ha.
Unfortunately, the striped number I'm wearing here is currently out of stock at Dezzal.  No worries though, as always, I got your backs.  Here are some other fabulous options for your browsing pleasure.  Oh, and for the record, I'm pretty much obsessed with every dress they sell so I had a freakin' hard time compiling this list, but here we are!  My top 6 faves:
