A few years back, I had a solid black maxi dress that was by far my favorite thing to wear, ever (and even posted about my love for it here). Unfortunately, my affection for the piece and constant wear eventually led to its demise. I’ve spent years searching for a worthy replacement (I’m 5’2, so maxi dresses tend to be a pipe dream for me), and finally found this slip dress style at Shopbop.
I posted a picture of how I styled it for work on Instagram last week (check it out here), but wanted to share how to style a maxi dress for a girl’s night out for the blog. I was especially inspired to do so since I’m going to Charleston this weekend for my friend, Camellia’s, bachelorette and think this is the perfect look for a night out on the town! It’s also something I’d plan to wear for NYFW, if I was going (insert crying emoji here).
In addition to wearing this cute little ensemble out in Charleston, I’m also looking forward to exploring the town for the first time. I’ve heard it’s unbelievable there and can’t wait to see the sites and eat, a lot! We’re even chartering a boat on Saturday, which I can’t freakin’ wait for! Be sure to follow the fun on my InstaStory (@CourtneyFashionista) and leave me a comment with some more fun things to do in Charleston!
