Sunglasses, Chanel. Necklaces, F21. Belt, Gossip Santa Barbara. Dress, Vertigo {Paris}.

I had a day full of business meetings and shopping {yesssss!} ahead of me.  The fashion challenge was to look polished and effortless, while still maintaining a level of comfort {didn’t want to have to cut shopping time short}.  Enter: the maxi dress.  It comes in endless styles and every imaginable color (though I’m a sucker for embroidery and jewel tones… it totally screams “High End Puerto Vallarta Vacation”… hey, a girl can dream).  This look is killer on any body type and it makes a statement {you are a confident. bold. perhaps international (make ’em wonder). vision of a woman.}.  Cinch the look with a belt or wear it loose.  Beachy waves in your hair and a pair of statement sunglasses on your face complete the look.
