The Maxi Mainstay


Let’s just say I’m pretty much addicted to fashion. My daytime job is in the fashion industry and I am the type who really gets joy in figuring out new outfits and how to make the current trends fit my lifestyle. One of my favorite fashion mainstays is the maxi dress– it’s so comfortable, easy, feminine, and fun.

I recently grabbed brunch with my parents downtown and I threw together this little outfit for the occasion. We sat outside at this great local restaurant on their GORGEOUS patio and enjoyed various forms of eggs benedict and a breakfast burrito as it sprinkled all around us. There was something kind of relaxing about eating al fresco even though it was raining all around us.  After, we strolled around downtown and explored a few shops. A maxi dress and a vest are the perfect daytime look for a random Sunday morning adventure.

It took me FOREVER to find a good maxi dress that fit me well. I know it sounds crazy, but every time I tried on a maxi the length was just super awkward and it was way too short. My heels were playing peek-a-boo and I didn’t like it! When I finally found one (after countless disappointments in the dressing room) that fit I was SO excited. Since then, I’ve built my collection of maxi dresses and now have quite a few hanging in my closet.

This blue tribal-print dress is my newest maxi and it certainly does not have a length problem. Sometimes, I find myself stepping on the bottom because it is so long. Which could be a major problem seeing as the dress is strapless and I keep pulling it down when I step on it. I won’t let that stop me from wearing it, though, because it is so comfortable and quickly being added to the list of my favorite dresses.
