think thrifted ~ black floral maxi dress outfit

thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 4This is the third outfit I thrifted and styled for a fun photo shoot with my friend Melissa, aka Mo.  If you missed the other two, you can check them out here {70’s style} and here {lucite green outfit}. Clearly, Melissa rocked each look and is just a supermodel masquerading as a realtor. ;)

thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 1For this last outfit, I paired a long, black floral maxi dress with some tall boots and a detailed jacket, for an effect that was less sweet and more bold.  I think this outfit ticks all the right boxes for spring.  You’ve got your floral {“Florals?  For spring?”  Groundbreaking.”}, plus you’ve got light layers with a jacket to keep your warm and a sleeveless dress underneath in case the day heats up.  And boots, because you don’t have to put them away yet.thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 2thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 3eta: Forgot to include this when I posted yesterday, but I did want to mention how I found this dress here for $5 and came across this similar dress online for $270… Holla!thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 5How amazing is this tunnel of light alleyway we found??  I was dying over this light.  Dying. thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 6thrifted black floral maxi dress outfit 7As much as I love every season {as recently discussed on here}, I am very much ready for more sunshine, warmer temps, and the easy style that comes along with this time of year.  I mean, look at this outfit: three pieces {four if you count the necklace} and it looks completely polished and gorgeous.

Here’s to power florals and fun fashion shoots!

That tunnel of light… amazeballs! I love this dress. As I’ve said a million times, I really need to go thrifting with you because I swear I don’t have this luck on my own. ;)
