Alainn Bella Discount!!!

Maxi Dress: c/o Alainn Bella; Bag: c/o Shop Mamie; Scarf and Earrings: Forever21; Shoes: Antonio Melani; Bracelets:  Urban Outfitters; Necklace: H&M; Rings:Vintage Spoon and Francesca's Collections

I am in love with maxi dresses.  This one from the super stylish online clothing boutique Alainn Bella is perfect for spring and summer.  The soft grey color is neutral enough to go with just about anything and the material is so soft and light weight that I know wearing it won't drag me down as we move into the warmer months.  And the best thing about it!?  It is versatile enough to dress up with heels or wear to the pool or beach over a swim suit.  To break up the maxi length, I wrapped a breezy scarf from Forever21 and tied it at the waist.  I recommend investing in a couple of scarves because there are so many fun ways to wear them!  I also threw on some of my favorite accessories, including my newest obsession, this fringe navajo bag from Shop Mamie.   

So get this: 
Alainn Bella is kindly offering a 15% discount to any of you!  To take advantage of this great discount, just enter the code “happiness15”.  It is good for anything other than sale items!  So click on over there and get shopping!  First thing on your list should be this maxi!  Just sayin'.

I love the scarf as a belt... either your waist is tiny though or that scarf is super long -- probably both? I just love how it wraps multiple time!

GoodFrameofMind said...

That is such a great maxi - this spring I've been loving gray so much, so much so it's the main color in my wedding. I love how you used the scarf as a belt, it adds to the whimsical look of this outfit :)

Rissy said...

airy, light, and breathy were all words that came to mind when I saw this! I love how you accessorized and totally agree about scarves!

I love this outfit and the pastel color palette you added!


Amy @ Amy Day to Day said...

You look amazing, as usual! And I agree, when a maxi dress is so long with hardly any shape, it's fun to break it up with a cute belt or scarf, which I never thought of! I love how you did that.

Very cute! I love maxis too, but being so tall, sometimes they become midis ;). You have such lovely posture, I must say.
Ever since I started going to the chiropractor, I've been obsessed.

Love that outfit! Many places to wear it, as you said, and it looks great! Loved that you added a scarf to it. I was actually thinking of scarfs this morning and was thinking about one scarf my sister has and she asked if I wanted it and I said no. Now I wish I said yes! It definitely is a great accessory!

This is SO gorgeous!!!

Erin said...

so chic & easy breezy! beautiful!

Nicole Craven said...

such a lovely look! great idea with the belt


Unknown said...

Gosh, I love that bag! I love fringe right now, and that dress is adorable, I love the soft gray, and I have been looking for more soft gray pieces :) Anyways, I love how you use that scarf as a belt, I might have to try that!

Anonymous said...

I love to wear thinner scarves as belts w/ my pants/shorts. Never thought about it w/ a dress. Great idea!
Can't do a rayon maxi dress though. I like natural fabrics for comfort and that are made to last, cotton...wool.

You look lovely!

Sarah said...

Wow you are absolutely STUNNING! I just discovered your blog and I love it! I'll definitely be following you. Please check out mine and follow if you'd like :)


Unknown said...

Love loving the fringe on the scarf and bag! It made the outfit so put together albeit it's simplicity! You're looking great, as always!



sbot said...

Great idea to add the scarf belt!
Love it!!!




Brooke Jones said...

Love this look! What a fresh, light outfit. And the scarf belt is especially wonderful!

Natalie said...

this is a really cute outfit


ameturity said...

Madly in love with the scarf-as-belt idea! I am going to try it soon!

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

This is one of my favorite outfits on you. Love, love this breezy dress, especially the color. It feels like you have nothing on. I also love the easy-breezy, pastel scarf you paired with it. Next time I put on a simple, one-color maxi dress I will consider adding a colorful scarf to the waist. Thank you for the inspiration and once again you look FAB!!

Katie, please stop by and let's be friends.

<3 Ada.
