I haven’t always been much of a minimalist. I have too big of a wardrobe and too much variety in colors and patterns. But sometimes I envy the minimalist.
Let’s face it – a minimalist doesn’t have to spend a ton of money when shopping. He or she just needs the basics and a little imagination.
I tried shopping like a minimalist for a day and the best that I could do was find a black and white maxi that I paired with a pair of brown platform sandals. Though I bought the dress with the intention to shop like a minimalist, I will admit that a wardrobe of black and white wouldn’t be too bad. Because look at this maxi – it’s amazing!
For summer trends, I typically avoid maxi dresses. As a petite woman under 5’4″, wearing long dresses just isn’t in the cards for me unless I decide to pay money to have the dress hemmed. But this maxi dress was just too irresistible.
That pattern on this dress is so simplistic and elegant. I love that the slit on the dress is in the front so that when walking, I reveal leg as soon as I take a step.
Wearing the platform sandals with this dress actually made me look a little taller and made sure that I wasn’t dragging my dress around all day.
This is a great summer outfit, and I am so excited to create more looks with it just like any minimalist would!
