All Tied Up

 Dress: Forever 21(sold out, but similar maxi option HERE)
Necklaces: 'Layered Spike Necklace' - Forever 21 
'Stacked Chevron Necklace' - Forever 21 (sold out - similar option HERE)
Shoes: 'Nickiee Sandals' - Steve Madden 
Sunnies: 'Cool Cat Sunglasses' - Urban Outfitters (sold out - similar HERE)

Simplistic summer dresses are my all time favorite. There is nothing better than being able to easily throw on a light little dress when the temperatures outside are scorching.
When I picked this one up from Forever 21, I knew it would be one of my summer staples. Not only is it the perfect little grey t-shirt dress, but it has a fantastic knotted cut out in the middle, adding just a touch of edge. This dress has served as my go to throw on for running errands or heading to the pool.
Feeling the edgy vibe, I added studded sandals, layered necklaces and some cat eyed sunnies and topped it all off with my newest obsession, my 'Natural Stone Minty Fresh Bracelet Stack' from t+j Designs. Seriously, these bracelets are SO cute. I've been wearing them with anything and everything, and love mixing them in with other bracelets, especially because they add a much needed pop of color. Now, I'm definitely eyeing the 'Natural Stone Watermelon Bracelet Stack' ... actually can I just have them ALL? They would definitely make for the cutest arm party EVER.

    Haha, love this simple yet edgy dress. You're right, its perfect. The cut-out, knotted middle steps up the basic shape fantastically. And you wear it so well! You've got the Cali-cool girl style down :)

    You you you are a beautiful lady. You are always so refined and put together, hot damn! Even when you're just bein' all casual and laid-back. You're one cool cat, I hope you know that! <3 All your little accessories here are just so fun and so you... those studded sandals are simply rad, your chevron necklace is ever so dainty and neat, and I love how your tiny ring matches your necklace! YEAH! YOU BET I NOTICED THE TINY RING.

    You are so good with details!

    Also, your hair your hair your hair. It's so curly and preetttyy! Aaaaahk, it always looks so nice. If I knew you in real life I'd constantly be asking for you to stay still while I drew it. For real. It has that perfect, spiral-y bounce to it. Hair model much? ;)

  21. This dress! It's the perfect mix of casual and edgy. I really like how it's knotted! On a summer day, I never want to wear an outfit that has a lot of parts to it and this dress just seems perfect for a laid-back day. And I LOVE how you accessorize. I have so much trouble trying to figure out if a bracelet or cuff goes with my outfit but you are such a pro at it :)
