Maxi To The Max + Week(end) Roll Call

20110729_RollCall.jpg

I'd like to think I'll be back in Maine this weekend. Reality is, that's not true. I'll be trying to get all errands and work done in preparations for Lollapalooza next weekend. My hope is the term relaxing falls in there somewhere too. Highly doubtful.

My favorite staple outfit this summer.....my black maxi dress from F21 (similar style here). If you've seen me this summer.....I've probably been wearing that dress. It was perfect for the Maine weekend....think I wore it at least 80% of the time we were there.....so at this point....it appears I haven't taken it off all summer!

Few things this week that caught my eye:

   - Check out this utterly jaw dropping before and after via Design Sponge on a trolley depot turned majestic home!

   - Texas peeps, your time has come.....Dallas's very own H&M officially opens Aug 18th!

   - I've been finding myself eyeing a lot of leopard this week. This dress in particular....she's a little out there, but so fun! Let's be honest, I won't commit to it, but it's a great afternoon daydream to think where I would wear it!

   - Look forward to trying out some of these easy summer hairstyles from the fabulous girls at Glitter Guide, except for that braid that takes three arms (see below), as most will be perfect for summer weekend and Lolla.

  - Have you heard of Raven + Lilly? You should now! Raven + Lilly is a socially responsible brand dedicated to empowering women through design partnerships and sustainable economic opportunities. The founders share a passion for fashion and for alleviating poverty. They have gorgeous handmade jewelry and paper goods. Their online shop opens in August, but for now, you can flip thru their lookbook.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
