Leon Max and Max Studios: finishing summer fashion and back to school basics that are anything but basic!

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Here I am enjoying the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Oh the joy of cloud cover! Although, in Arizona, it's been oddly cool. We are not having the normal high hundreds, in fact-we haven't even hit 100 in the past week. It's mid way through July!

 And that brings me to my point, yes, here in Arizona, we are a few short weeks away from the offical BTS.
Back to School starts on August 3rd here. For us, the summer is almost over!

So I've got some BTS style ideas for you with some looks from Leon Max and Max Studios. This will help a gal go back to school in style and be wearing something fresh that the other co-eds won't have clued into yet.

 Ok, this eyelet dress is my fave. I have something similar but mine doesn't have all the details and structure of this dress. I love it! I think this is perfect for finishing out the summer.

(From the website) The easy silhouette fashioned from a silky fabric and plenty of sweet details make this dress a versatile must own. Look closely at the apron inspired panels that button at the sides and delicate stitching that lends subtle textures to the front. Pair with bare legs, leggings or jeans.  Maxstudio.  $218

Now, I love bold colors and stripes almost as much as I love polka dots. This turquoise and color block dress is a perfect way to kick off the new school year. I think it's fresh and flirty looking without looking like you are trying to hard!

(From the Max Studio website) The graphic design of contrasting hues and a day to evening versatility makes this dress a must-own in every way. The sleeveless silhouette fits close to the body and flares out into a flirty, softly pleated hem, while the cotton and rayon yarns are comfortable to wear with a subtle luster. Maxstudio. $198

Finally, this look has me all over it! I'm not going back to school although I am taking several online classes!
I love this look because as a busy mom, this is dressed up enough for my daily meetings, casual enough to teach homeschool in while keeping me fresh and fashiony for a lunch date!

Admit it, you love the wedges as much as I do!
