Color Blocked Maxi Dress| OOTD

Talk about love at first sight! Makemechic.com was kind enough to send me this incredibly chic and comfy maxi dress to review for you. I have nothing but praises to sing about this dress. The details are on point with a nice collar, buttons, two splits, rich color blocking and front detail.

When I wear a dress my major concern is, “Can I chase and pick up my three old son without revealing my entire backside.” Not only could I do that but I could also go to the buffet and not worry about my “food baby” showing after I’ve eaten too much. Ha ha!

The sizing runs a bit large. I’m wearing an extra small and I still have plenty of room in this dress. Leave me a comment about your favorite look to chase your kiddos in, enjoy!

Modern Tunic | OOTD

Modern Tunic, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways! It is like finding gold when you come across a garment that is truly perfect for you. First off this dress is black and white.(I’m so obsessed with these colors!!!!)  It is also modern, simple, and comfortable! The collar and partial button down placket gives it a really classic feel. Color blocked stripes on the shoulders make it sleek and adds just enough interest to the dress.

When I’m wearing this dress I don’t have to worry about it clinging to me or being too short because the crepe fabric is light and flows well. I could also take this look from day to night by starting out with a pair of chucks (To chase a rambunctious 3 year old around) and then throwing on a  pair of heels for evening. Since Grant wasn’t with me I opted for these fun criss cross leopard wedges for my day look. (Ummm, leopard prints are another obsession of mine)

I’m a minimalist at heart but color constantly calls my name so I accessorized this look with round cat eye sunglasses and a bold red-orange lip color. My black faux leather bag is simple as well but adds another element with its glossy finish.

Leave me a comment about which of your outfits is COMPLETELY perfect for you? Enjoy!
