First of all, YAY! I finally got an outfit post uploaded to the blog. For this look it was all about brightening up an old maxi dress that I had laying around. The dress is literally 5 years old from Old Navy, but with some fun accessories it feels new again. I hope you’re all having an awesome Monday! Oh… and to make your Monday a little brighter head over to my Instagram for a chance to win a pair of Ray Ban’s from Frames Direct!

Maxi Dress: Old Navy- 5 Years Ago // Sunglasses: RayBans Frames Direct // Necklace: Beaded by W // Clutch: DownEast Basics

    I always wear black, I mean always. I love the idea of adding a splash of colour- guess I have some shopping to do!

    Love the clutch! I have to get one in a bright color. I have some black dresses a black clutch would work well with.
