Farm Rio Summer to Fall Maxi Dress
As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I’ve recently discovered and fallen in love with a Brazilian Brand called “Farm Rio” – their dresses, skirts, jumpsuits, shorts and pants really capture the feeling of happiness, joy and a tropical paradise.
So when I saw this Neon Macaws Dress, it was love at first sight. First off – the print is amazing and the colors are stunning. It also features an off-shoulder neckline that looks both demure and elegant at the same time. The full skirt just begs to be twirled around, and the beaded belt really finishes the look. It’s a great piece for a Summer wedding, end-of-Summer Party, a picnic, a date, and anything in-between.
As I often do with super bright pieces, I toned it down with neutral accessories – and as you guys may recall, my favorite neutral for Summer is white.
Here are the exact ingredients to this outfit formula, and how I styled it:
- The Bright Patterned Dress. I wore it with its original belt – but as I often do, I might swap it out for a leather belt for another look.
- The Flat Sandals. These Margaux NYC shoes strike yet again. So versatile – and comfortable! Definitely a great investment into your Summer wardrobe!
- The Structured Bag. Fun fact: one of my (few) retail jobs was a Seasonal job at Coach almost 20 years ago. It was a fun holiday job – and I really enjoyed learning about the brand, their heritage and designs. That Holiday Season all of my friends and family got gifts from Coach (their employee discount was just too good to pass up) – so needless to say, I didn’t really make any money in that job. I feel like as my tastes changed, I stopped shopping at Coach, until a few months ago, when I started noticing their designs again – like this Original Willis Leather Top Handle Bag. Their well-made, timeless aesthetic grabbed me again, and I had to style the bag with this look – to coordinate with the shoes in color and leather to create a “linking effect”.
I hope this inspires you to try out a similar outfit this Summer! As always, please feel free to share the outfits you create via Instagram, using hashtag #ModnitsaOutfit in your posts, and I’ll be sure repost them on my stories!
