What I'm Wearing: Black and White Maxi Dress



Coco & Simone black and white maxi dress / Caribbean Joe turquoise sandals via Sears

When packing for Central America I knew I wanted to include a dress that was a bit more modest (with sleeves and past my knees) in case I needed to cover up or just step it up a notch. When I came across this black and white chevron print maxi dress, I knew I found what I was looking for (on Instagram no less!). The fabric is soft, thin, and stretchy so this makes for quite a comfy dress! With its bold pattern, accessories aren't really necessary.




I used the discount code INSTACOCO to get 15% off, which ended up being the equivalent of shipping to Canada. I've only worn this dress a couple of times so far but anticipate getting a lot more use of it as we head further south into Central America where modesty and fashion come more into play.

Or... I just wear it anyway and live up to my reputation of always being a little overdressed.

  1. Haha, that quote is very true! I agree, with a bold pattern, going without accessories is okay, and in my opinion much better. Nice look, Danielle. Have fun traveling!!!

  3. I love this dress! It looks so comfy! I am quite tall so I always find it a struggle to find a maxi dress that doesn't end up looking like a 3/4 dress!
