DD's Style File - Daytime Boho

Hey ladies! I'm back from my New York vacation and it was fabulously fun! I'll be posting some random recap photos later in the week (or you can check out my collages on Instagram now)

I'm catching up on work and getting back into the daily grind, so I have a quick post today.
What I wore to work today was a bit bohemian-ish. Somehow though, I think I still managed to make it work for the office.

Cream metallic tee - Marshall's
Olive maxi dress - Body Central
Cage wedge - Gunmetal
Raffia clutch - Apt. 9
Cognac belt - old
Woven cuff bracelet - The Limited
Wooden bead necklace - old
These shoes are definitely one of my favorite pair in my collection, but I don't get the opportunity to wear them half as much as I'd like to. But when I do, I think they are the perfect piece to pull a look together and give it some extra "pow pow pow!" (here is an all time favorite!)

The skirt I'm wearing is actually a maxi dress, my goal was for the belt to provide some waist definition and give it a little high waisted feel. Olive is a hue that works in summer and fall, and I've rocked this maxi dress/skirt in the colder months too with colored tights and platform sandals. Sounds strange, right? It was cute, I promise! I'll have to remember to recreate and post that look when it gets cooler.

I've actually never worn this maxi dress as a dress, I've always covered it up with another piece, it just doesn't seem as flattering the "normal" way. But perhaps I'll try it again before the summer ends....*sigh* I mean around here, summer is like halfway over.

I wonder if we could get as lucky as we did a couple years ago and get another snowless winter. That would be fantastic.

Well, I'm off - I hope you beauties have a terrific Tuesday!
