For those lazy spring and summer days, a basic jersey maxi dress is the perfect piece to turn to. I added some excitement to this otherwise simple maxi by cinching the waist with a statement belt. This afternoon made me realize how essential it is to have a basic maxi dress in your closet. Although it may be a bit tricky to maneuver in because of the length, I find extreme comfort in wearing something that is made of a cotton-blend. This attire was completely appropriate for my afternoon tea date today with my best friend at MoRoCo Chocolat.

P.S. I had my wisdom teeth removed last Friday so you may notice some swelling in my cheeks :(

  1. Love the minimalistic styling!

    I had my wisdom teeth removed 2 months ago and the holes are still healing. I was able to eat anything in less than a week though. Hope your healing process goes well!
