The One Where I Try to Wear a Maxi Dress

I really do love maxi dresses. I never thought they’d look good on me because I’m pretty short (5’3″). This dress breaks all of my rules. It’s horizontal stripes — gasp! 

I liked it instantly when I saw it because it actually had sleeves. I like most of my clothes to be more versatile (thereby getting more bang for my buck) and with sleeves I feel comfortable wearing this to work too. So here it is, an outfit post:

I belted it. Good idea? I’m pretty sure. I’d love your thoughts.

Feet look kind of weird if you do a leg cross thing in a maxi dress. Noted.

It’s really just an extra long t-shirt. Comfy!

My handsome photographer. Shoes are over-rated. 

An advice on how else I should style this? No belt? Flats instead of sandals?

Do tell!


  • I think you look great! I am tall and maxi dresses just look funny on me. I’ve tried several and just don’t love them on me. Makes me sad too, I love them on everyone else 🙁

    Newest follower, nice to meet you 🙂

  • I think it looks great AS IS!

  • I like it! It looks casual and comfy, and I like the belt with it! I think it’s funny I just put up a similar post about whether or not I should wear a certain pair of shoes!

  • Love the maxi dress. You look surprisingly tall ??? And I want one Thanks.
    P.S. Belted=good idea 🙂

  • Just stumbled upon your blog.. adorable. I love that dress, where is it from? Definitely belted with sandals as-is. I recently bought my first maxi dress and was nervous about it too but I love it!
