My First Maxi Dress

Dear Fashion Diary,

My dear sister taught me how to make this flower!

 Dress: Ross
Belt: Wet Seal
Gladiators: Thrifted
Necklace: JC Penney
Glasses: {disc. thru my job} Liz Claiborne
Shades:{disc. thru my job} Michael Stars

I finally did it. I bought a maxi dress!
It's hard to find one long enough 
for someone my height but this one is close enough.
I loved the sleeve length and also if you've been following
 my blog even a little bit
you've realized I'm a sucker for anything nautical,
so the blue and white stripes sealed the deal!
It's one of the comfiest things I own and I even wore it to work!

p.s. these are my new glasses! I'll let you in on a little secret though,
I popped the lenses out just to see if I liked the frame
on my face first. Since I am basically blind,
they look quite different with my bad prescription in them now, but I still love them! I'll put up pictures of the completed glasses later :)

Well I hope you're all having a magnificent summer!
Our summer vaca is FINALLY coming up next week and I can hardly WAIT!

Pin It!

firstly, your sunnies and the lip colour are gorgeous, I love both! and what a coincidence! some days ago I thrifted myself a dream maxi dress and I honestly can't wait to wear it somewhere soon :P I also like the way you've combined your striped maxi. it's great! :)

Such a beautiful maxi dress :) I love the way you've styled it, and I must say that it looks really amazing on you :) I couldn't rock a hem that long even if my life depended on it - I'm that short, simply :D xoxo ♥

congrats on your first maxi dress! i was dubious for a long time until i got my first one and realized that i meant i could basically wear PAJAMAS in public. so yeah, i was sold. anyway, the stripes and sleeves are FANTASTIC on this one...a great first one!
