I spotted Sam on the last day of classes at Hartwick College. Her bright red maxi dress encompassed both the excitement of the last day of school and the end of a great year. By wearing this outfit, Sam definitely kicked off summer with a fashionable bang!

Elements of the Outfit
1. Gold Jewelry
Sophisticated gold jewelry jazzes up Sam's bold maxi dress. While red is a powerful color, the silhouette of the dress is simple. The addition of a gold statement necklace and rings take the outfit from good to great.
2. Brown Leather Boots
I couldn't think of a better shoe to wear than Sam's boots. They add a casual balance to her otherwise dressy outfit. The neutral color and classic shape make these boots versatile; they would look fab with almost any outfit.
