Last week has been super-tiring, now that the blog is in flight and is 1 week old I am sleep deprived, super tired, exhausted, but still can’t keep my feet up on bed to rest because of all the adrenaline rush :-D
I was in no mood to play dress up this weekend and when I went on my regular Friday after work mall-hop, I found this beauty I fell in love instantly :-D (OK enough justifying unplanned shopping).
I have been looking for a causal-dressy-yet-not-so-dressy dress that is easy to style and carry, what other thing comes to mind then ‘maxis’.
Maxi dresses have become summer staple for stylish women everywhere. There is something about maxi dress that screams deep feminism and grace. Maxi dresses are the daytime version of the gowns, and they are simple stylish yet very chic to style. Since its arrival maxi dress can be found everywhere– at beach, summer barbecues/picnics, lazy summer dinners and sometimes at office too. Everyone looks good in a maxi dress, you just need to determine the length and style that suits you and then have fun with this great style.
This summer has been summer of midi dresses and culottes, being a border line petite and a flat shoe proponent it is little challenging to pull both styles for me. Moreover in maxi dresses if I don’t find petite size I can’t even wear it with my longest heel!
So my joy knew no bound when I found this perfect maxi dress in petite size at Bellevue loft store, I nearly bought it without trying.
This dress has such gorgeous colors that it dresses itself, with it beautiful hydrangeas prints it will be a perfect summer evening dress and will go well in fall to with ankle boots.This dress has right mix of flutter going on and we all know that ruffles has been totally in fashion this pre-fall.
I decided to dress it up with the J. Crew mini rider bag in Italian weather in festival red color(It is available in bigger size too , ladies if you like your bags big) and my latest favorite bling from J. crew –the floral drop earring (check J crew's fall jewelry collection it is so floral,delicate and some items are on sale)
The matching stilettos are from loft and are old, you can wear this dress with wedges/strap sandals I am providing some suggestions at the end of the blog.
