This week I’m continuing my series highlighting my favorite online boutiques to shop at! My next look also comes from Magnolia Boutique that is based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. As I’ve previously stated on The Mod Little Melanin, maxi dresses and jumpers are my go-to pieces to wear in the summer. They’re simple to style, and easy to wear when you’re unsure of what to wear. You can dress them up or dress them down simply by changing a few accessories.
For this particular look, I choose to keep my accessories to a minimum, as Kansas City summers are hot, and metal accessories and the sun do not necessarily mix. Instead of draping my arms in jewelry, and rings, I choose to wear a straw fedora hat that I purchased from H&M for only $3.00. Hats have always been a popular accessory in my closet and seem to be making a comeback in the fashion world. Many hats on popular websites range from $10.00 to $25.00 and can be even higher on boutique websites. What’s my tip for finding hats at affordable prices? Purchase your hats at the end of the season! Straw fedoras, and other colorful hats typically are marked down at the beginning of September, while winter hats in warm colors and thick fabrics are usually marked down in early February.
Although the maxi dress I am wearing is no longer available on indiedressboutique.com, many similar maxi dresses are available on the site. You can even purchase your favorite pieces with Afterpay so that you can wear your new outfit now and pay later!
The key piece to completing this boho inspired look are the mules I’m wearing, that also happen to be from Magnolia Boutique. Mules are the perfect shoe to wear in the spring, summer and fall. In the summer, they’re great to wear with a maxi dress, or a simple way to dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit. The mules I purchased are no longer available, but I’ve linked a similar pair that are available on the website!
In the coming weeks, I plan to post a flat lay of how to easily transition this look, and a few other summer looks into fall! Be sure to sign up for emails from The Mod Little Melanin to make sure you never miss a post!
