Maxi Moment


When summer came this year, I realized I had a dire situation in my closet – LOMD. Lack of Maxi Dresses. I had one from a few years ago that was starting to make me sad when I looked at it on the hanger, so it was time to move on. Start fresh. This River Island version from Asos was my first new addition for the season and as often happens with maxi dresses, it has basically been on me nonstop ever since. It’s comfy, easy, affordable, and machine washable, not to mention long enough to not look awkward on me, which earned it extra points. Now I’m generally hooked on maxis and can’t stop perusing them online, so I expect to be adding a few more to the wardrobe in the coming months. So if you or anyone you know suffers from LOMD, you don’t have to hurt anymore. Asos can help.

    LOMD! I love that! I’m slowly building my collection as I was late to love maxis – I just thought they’d be hot and I’d always be battling to make them appear casual. Boy was I wrong! They’re super comfy on hot days (better than shorts in my opinion) and so cute with a pair of sandals!

  8. This is just so gorgeous!!!

  9. love those cut outs!

  10. Haha ‘you don’t have to hurt anymore’ – cute.

    This one looks great on you, and like yourself, I have trouble finding long enough ones since I’m 5’11. I’ve even ended up sewing a few of my own (and I’m VERRRRRRY amateur) which is awesome bc I can rock them with HEELS! Imagine! ;)

    PS – cat eye shades were MADE for you.

  11. I have that maxi! I love it, looks great on you too. I get compliments every time I wear it!
