DD's Style File - Bohemian WRAPsody {It's a Link Up!}

Ok, so I'm not diggin' the whole red, white and blue situation for this 4th of July. I decided on more of a relaxed chic look, with a black base and splashes of gold, red and leopard print. Hey now!

This also happens to be my very first Style Me Friday Link Up! So I'm rather excited about that. This week's theme was maxi dresses, so incidentally today's look was perfect for it. I hadn't even actually planned to post a style look today, go figure!

Open back maxi - ShoeDazzle
During the summer months, I spend a lot of time in maxi dresses. My other dresses have a more flowy, bohemian feel to them, so this dress was a nice change up from that. I purchased this one on a whim from the "old" ShoeDazzle.com. Even though it's black it's great for super humid days because of the open back, which gives it a modern, spicy feel.

Red leather handbag - Foley + Corinna
Black & gold bracelet - Charlotte Russe
Open link bracelet - JCPenney
Black & gold statement ring - Charlotte Russe
Bold link necklace - JCPenney
Teardrop earring - Express
Leopard headwrap - Express

Maxi dresses definitely make summer dressing super easy. Like for me today - grabbed a dress, twisted up a headwrap and tossed on a few pieces of jewelry (or not, depending on the mood) and I'm good to go.

I'm sure I could add a high heeled wedge to this and sass it up for a night out, but I usually find myself reaching for this dress for easy daytime dressing...but we'll see! *wink*


I really enjoyed participating in Style Me Friday this week and will try to make a point to join in on upcoming weeks. I think that would be a great way to get another Style File post in for the week, seeing that the hard work is kinda done -  Eboni's already given me the foundation idea for an outfit!
Thanks for visiting and stayed tuned for more.

I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July! I'm off in search of some barbecue and a candy apple!
