Y’all, this maxi is EVERYTHING! Without even trying it on at Anthro Durham, I knew it was l-o-v-e. I’m being serious here…
The dress is made of a modal and spandex blend which creates an incredibly soft knit fabric. It’s lightweight without any awkward cling and the cut of this dress is amazing too. The cinched waist with the cut at the top, makes me want every client of mine to own this!
I can think of several ways to wear this dress, but since we are in the summer to fall transition period I decided to outfit for that. I paired this dress with a velvet kimono and mules for a more fall-like look. The kimono speaks for itself with its beautiful print. The velvet texture is right on trend for fall too. I’m telling you this now, velvet is HUGE for fall. If you don’t believe me, then read this.
As I am writing this post I have a pumpkin cinnamon candle burning by me. Obviously, all I can think about right now is all things fall! I’m not exactly ready for summer to be over, but it’s always nice to have a change of seasons (at least for styling purposes it is!).
All photos were taken by the amazing photographer, Marie Manning! She is a local from my hometown, Greenville, NC. If you are interested in hiring her for photos you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The venue for these photos took place at The Robin’s Nest in Grimsland, NC (outside of Greenville). This house is owned by a family friend. Robin, the owner, has a passion for all things beautiful and vintage. Her home is unlike any other I have seen. It is GORGEOUS inside and out! I’m surprised Southern Living Magazine hasn’t found this spot. The Robin’s Nest is also a wedding and events venue. See more by going to their website here: http://www.therobinsnestevents.com. Robin has shared with me some exciting, new things coming to The Robin’s Nest, so stay tuned!
