Accessories Fashion Outfit of the Day (OOTD)

Fancy Me Up Maxi

Happy Monday dolls and hope you all had a great weekend! If you’ve been following me along you know I absolutely love a good maxi dress.  Most of my maxi’s are on the casual side but I also have a few dressier ones such as this OOTD’s fancy me up maxi! I’ve worn it on two special occasion’s and it’s also suitable for a date night or a wedding. Fancy Me Up Maxi 04


When you have a bold dress there’s really no need to do much else other than wear a great pair of heels and clutch.  I did add this Forever 21 statement necklace and it goes well since the pastel peach blends nicely with the brighter coral of the dress without looking overdone. Fancy Me Up Maxi 05 Fancy Me Up Maxi 01 Dress is old (love this one) / F21 necklace / similar clutch (here) / similar heels (here) / similar sunnies (here)

This maxi was not a recent purchase but I still adore it and always seem to get compliments when I wear it. Shopping your own closet is sometimes just what you need, wouldn’t you agree? For me having your own sense of style doesn’t mean having every trendy piece or trying to keep up with high end fashionista’s, it’s all about your own take and what compliments you best.  I have loved maxi dresses forever and that won’t change once they are not such a coveted item. Fancy Me Up Maxi 03 Sure I do love me a new fresh trend here and there but keeping up with all of them or trying to compete isn’t the goal.  Stay true to yourself, embrace your individuality and what you have, that’s what makes your style unique.  I have always believed you do not have to spend a fortune or follow every trend to have great style.  It feels good to be fashionable and looking your best without breaking the bank! 

Speaking of not breaking the bank I couldn’t resist finding some other fancy maxi dress options, 5 of them are under $35!! Fancy-Me-Up-Maxi-Collage 1. Blue pleated / 2. White & gold / 3. Green metal trim / 4. Yellow floral / 5. Pink embroidered / 6. Red & white / 7. Black lace / 8. Blue tones / 9. Blue halter

Which is your favourite? Are you a maxi dress person?

    The colors of your maxi look great on you! Love how you styled it with simple accessories. Is the belt part of the dress? Such a cute look! Great picks too, especially #4, #6 & #8!

    This maxi looks super pretty on you! Such a great dress! The accessories you paired with this look are perfect because they just add to the look! I love your maxi dress choices (as always). I swear we are on the same wave length because either you choose a piece I have just purchased or a piece I have been eyeing. In this case I have been eyeing #9 like once a day. I just need an occasion to wear it! Great post!

    I love a great Maxi dress as well and yours is absolutely stunning. I agree with you that fashion and looking great doesn’t have to cost a fortune and that one must shop their own closet. That is why I am doing an entire week of budget posts under 75 bucks. Today’s Post is all about a Great Maxi Dress or Skirt so I’d love for you to join us and link up. If you do, please include a link of both myself and Maria’s Blog. Thanks so much.

    Once again you look gorgeous in this dressed up version for a Wedding. =) I love it.

    That dress might have seen more seasons than one, but it’s right on trend, and more importantly, it flatters you to pieces! So pretty, and accessorized just beautifully.

    Love this Maxi Dress and the fact that you shopped your own closet is even better!! Maxi’s are my go-to summer attire, so easy just to add a necklace and out the door you go!

    Hi Marta!

    I found you through the Stylish Tuesday linkup party! This is an adorable maxi! I’ve followed you on most of your social media accounts so hopefully I can see some more of your cute posts 🙂

    I agree shopping your own closet is the best treatment at times. I can’t go shopping much these days with 4 kids and the budget going to diapers but for years maxi dresses have been my go to dresses. Cute blog! Visiting from Ada and Maria’s link up. Please stop by sometime, I am running a giveaway for 2 weeks too, so feel free to check that out as well. Rachel xo
