Last week Modcloth asked me to be a part of their Uniquely You challenge. They provided me with an image of one of their best sellers that started as the base of my outfit, from there I was to style the piece and create a storyboard of my finds using Wanelo. The base of my outfit started with their Summer Stroll Maxi Dress in red (which is also available in other colors and plus sizes). The bold red and ease with which the fabric flows instantly made me think of Barcelona. (Have I been there? No. But a girl can dream!) Here is how I would style this maxi dress that could easily become a staple in my summer wardrobe!
For accessories, keep it simple and polished by layering gold-toned bracelets; I especially love Modcloth's wrapped beaded bracelet paired with their vintage-inspired serpent bracelet. Being outdoors, I would want a wide-brimmed hat and some stylish tortoiseshell sunglasses. These two accessories could also be lifesavers if you're rocking the 2nd day hairstyle and maybe haven't had much sleep (Barcelona will do that to ya)..
To carry all your essentials, the Triple the Charm purse would be the perfect size, plus it has a shoulder strap so you can keep your hands free for snapping pics, shopping, and instagram-ing (is that a verb yet?) your meals. Last, I would finish the look with a fun patterned wedge like these black and white striped wedges. If you are going to be doing a lot of walking, opt for a gladiator sandal or ballet flats.
