Black is usually not a color that I reach for in the summer, but there is something about this black maxi dress that has me changing my mind. It is the perfect blank canvas. I actually wore this dress to travel to Toronto and it was perfect. I was able to layer it while in the chilly planes but once I landed in Toronto and it was hot, it kept me cool enough. Best of both worlds there!
For this outfit, I went all out summer with my accessories. I started with a fun and bright tassel necklace. Then add probably my favorite summer bag from Spartina 449. Seriously, how cute is it? Finally I topped it all off with a great panama hat that I pretty much want to wear all the time.
