Bring out the maxi (dress)

With the weather finally getting warmer I was able to take my favorite maxi dress out of the closet and onto the streets of Madrid. I wanted to put a bit of color in the solid black dress that I paired with all black gladiator flats so I added a pop of color with my purple aviator glasses & rainbow colored bangles.

Currently the best place to wear your bangles and bracelets are on your upper arm and I completely agree. It gives you an edgy but cute look with a tribal feel. How adorable. So next time you put on your bracelets push them up pass your elbow.

When wearing an upper arm piece don’t be afraid to make it the focal point of your outfit. Pick a color that stands out or creates the finishing touch to your style.

1. Have it add a pop of color to your outfit
2. Match the bangle with your current gold/silver jewelry
3. Pick a bangle that compliments your outfit

Be glamorous and be you!
