Black Maxi Dress

- Fashion, Outfits

baxi maxi dress + vintage sunglasses

Hello from North Carolina! My boyfriend and I are doing the rest of the traveling to Charlotte today to see our friends. Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore on Sunday when it was crazy hot outside.

See that hair? That’s called humidity. Just a few minutes before, my hair was actually cooperating and curled. That’s August for you and today we leave for Charlotte, NC, which won’t be any better for my hair. Anyway… with the high humidity that I was hoping to avoid this year since we have had such a great summer for weather (meaning not overly hot or humid), I opted for this sheer black maxi dress to head downtown with Zhenya! I added a black crystal bracelet, a vintage belt and a vintage-inspired pair of sunglasses! Oh and of course, my favorite weekend bag because it fits everything I need without carrying around too much.

If you would like to see what I’m up to in NC, follow along on Instagram!
