Maxi dress times 2

 Even though I'm suffering with all the pollen this time of year, the sunny, warm weather is very enjoyable. And I'm loving how comfy the maxi dress is. I just want to wear it every day. And buy one in every color. I'll try to retrain myself though! I've been inspired by many other fashion bloggers sporting the maxi dress. The always lovely Kayla here and here. And I love this look over on Modest Fashion Sense. I could go on but you get the idea.

I had a hard time deciding which top to wear. I love stripes. But I also am loving color blocking! Hmmm. Decisions, decisions.

Top: H&M (folded under since it's about 6 inches longer)
Maxi Dress: Down East
Earrings: Forever 21
Belt: Thrifted
Sandals (which you can't see): Target

Navy top: Ross

Perfect for watching this all weekend with my cute family!

  2. It looks cute on you, but I'll be honest... I'm not sure I dig the tops over the maxi dress thing. I checked out those other blogs and maybe i just have to get used to it or something.

  12. I almost styled my maxi dress with a billowy shirt over it, but went a different route. Maybe I should have used the shirt--that second look is especially wonderful!

  13. Both looks are great! The second seems dressier - and I love the dolman sleeves. Stripes are cute too. Folding a long top under is a really good idea. I'll try that sometime.

  17. Oooh. Both of these are great - I'm torn which I like better, but I'm going to go with the 2nd one. Something about the color and draping of the top just looks so great.
    Hope your allergies have subsided.
