Continuing with showing pieces that were “hits” from this Boden review post , here is the maxi dress I mentioned. Though this is a regular length, you can see it's wearable even with super flat sandals. The bodice is lined so it's easy to tuck in a little safety pin at the bustline to keep from popping out all over. This is a super fun print that garners so many compliments; I wore it last week when I was feeling pretty crummy yet had people stopping me to tell me how nice I looked. Gotta love clothing that makes you look better than you feel!
This post shows how if you have the room, it's worth it to hold on to handbags and lipsticks. This is a lipstick I bought back in 2014 and usually I find it too intense, but loved the bright orangey-reddish-pink color with the print of the dress. This bag is uber old; I scored it at a Hobo Bags warehouse sale in 2011 (check out those baby Emerson shots!) along with my favorite black clutch and the wallet I JUST replaced a couple months ago. This bag works as a clutch, a shoulder bag, and I love how it can hold a lot yet it's still a very slim profile. As for the sandals, these are the ones I keep mentioning in every post; no arch support or cushioning but they come in a variety of widths and colors and look dressy even though they're glorified flip flops!
