Best summer Purchase - Denim Jacket (Final Part)

Aaahhh, finally it is over! I bet that's what you all were thinking when you read the title of this post ;D  Yes, dear friends, we have come to the final part of the 'Best Summer Purchase' series! And thank you for being so patient and such a sporting bunch..

Danielle Bux
(color block maxi)

Frankly I don't know who Danielle Bux is but when I browsed through the net looking for some inspiration, I came across the picture above and I liked the simplicity and how laid-back this outfit looked. 

Like the denim jacket, color block maxi in my opinion is a great investment that can go from season to season and can be dressed up or down.  I bought this maxi from Splendid a few months back and ever since, I bought 2 more from the same label!  I highly recommend this label especially if you have problems looking for maxis that do not need to be hemmed. I can easily wear this maxi with a flat sandals or flip-flop and no hemming needed!

Thank you so much for reading my 'Best Summer Purchase' series and if you haven't gotten a pair of denim jacket already, go find yours.. I promise you, it will be money well spent :)

:: Outfit ::

Jacket : Salsa (similar in grey) (splurge) (steal)

Bag : Isabella Fiore

  16. Hi! Here I am! Sorry to be away for a bit but I've been in a frenzy of last minute summer activities... All of a sudden it seems we realized there's so little time of vacation left and we want to cram in two months worth of summer in the next two weeks. Yea! Right! Like that could happen! ..but we're tryin'!
    Of course I can teach you the sock bun! Just bring your husband's gym sock! (snicker snicker)
    Anyhoo, you've picked the wrong yocal-local for recommendations on hotels around Santa Monica. I don't think I have EVER stayed at any hotels around that area since it's so close to our house. So check Yelp.com for some recommendations. Aside from the hotel stuff I'm your woman for entertainment and distractions in and around L.A. Check out my next post on another great day trip. I have entertained out of town friends and family so often I feel I can do a tour of L.A. blindfolded and have the tour "speech" ready at a second's notice. haha
    So what days will you actually be here? Is there anything in particular that you want to do?
    OMG! What will you do with your kids? Too many questions?!
    Do bring this gorgeous jacket with you. Its a great and versatile piece; perfect for this Cali weather...

    Can't wait to meet face to face!

  17. Your ideas inspire and make you dream.

  18. I love this jacket- the texture is perfect and looks soft and not at all grainy which I feel can look cheap- making this look really expensive and to top it off, it fits you perfectly!

    Lucky girl!

  25. Love love your necklace! Great look!!

  26. This whole ensemble is beautiful, and that necklace? WOW! It gives your look an exotic feel and I never would have guessed it was F21!

  27. This is probably my favorite look. I love how casual and easy it is, but it's amazing how chic a maxi and denim jacket can still look!

  28. This is my favorite way you've styled your denim jacket!! This is casual chic and your jacket adds the perfect touch to your adorable maxi dress.
    Also, you are crazy to think you can't wear shorts ~ I know for a fact you would look fabulous in them! There are a lot of styles that I think look horrid on me, but it's all about finding a pair you feel great in and everyone has different styles that are most flattering for them. Don't give up on them :) I can see you in some dressy shorts in a silky fabric with a tie waist or something like that :)



    1. Awww, thanks for the head up, Jacy.. maybe like what you said, I haven't found the right shorts that is flattering enough for my body shape.. I will not shy away from taking one or two into the fitting room next time I go shopping :) Thanks so much, I truly appreciate it..

  29. look at you rocking this look! love it. Maxis and denim were made for each other.
