Wednesday, June 15, 2016 / Vlog Post Notes

I found this maxi dress two or three years ago, and it was a first for me. I’ve worn maxi skirts on and off for years, but never a dress. This one appealed to me because of the simple, classic t-shirt styling and crisp, bright color combination. I also liked the slim, but not too-tight, fit and that it had sleeves. Short or cap sleeves mean I don’t have to worry about a bra strap showing.

The other great quality of a t-shirt maxi dress is that it can be worn as a “lunch with the girls” sort of look, or very casually with a rope belt, flip flops, and straw bag. I’ve listed several cute ones currently available, should you like to try one yourself.

If you already own one (or end up getting gone), please let me know how you style yours and where you wear it.

    This outfit looks so cool yet traditional. Pairing yellow with pink has been a combination of yours that I love. Where can we find the navy and white leather bracelets you wear in many of you blogs. I like when you list similar items for all you clothes and accessories . Maxi dresses are often boho style but this one is a keeper!
