the maxi trend

Life update: Driving to grandma's house today! (it's like a twelve hour total trip to get back home, so we always have to break it up)
Onto this maxi. I know it's hard to believe, but this is actually my first maxi dress. I know, I know, I'm crazy. I've just never found one that I like on me! They're always a tad too short, or just not my favorite. Enter a maxi I found on the dress rack at TJMaxx. I grabbed it on a whim, and immediately loved it when I tried it on. Plus, the $20 price tag made it a must and I just couldn't pass on this color!
(Fun fact: I used to do ballet here at the Musical Arts Center when I was younger!)

dress: TJMaxx (similar) // shoes: Chinese Laundry // necklace: Groopdealz

Anyone else late to join the maxi game?

  2. Lovely color! I know what you mean, I love maxi dresses and skirts but it can be tricky to find the perfect length. This one looks great on you!

  5. I love that maxi! I've been looking for one for a long time, but, like you said, they're all too short or just have an awkward fit. Or they're way too expensive haha! You got a great find :)
