I’m pretty sure that a black maxi dress could end up serving as a uniform of sorts for me. The versatility of a simple black dress is hard to beat, wouldn’t you say?
I love that I can throw on a fun, bright necklace, a few bracelets, and a graphic tote…then I’m good to go! Colors and patterns really pop against the black backdrop.
Black bandeau maxi dress: c/o Karen Kane, also at Nordstrom,

I was absolutely drawn in by this beaded necklace when I spotted it at Forever21. The texture and pattern is so fun, and even though it is a large statement necklace, it is very lightweight!
