Everyday Bombshell

Guess what, you guys? I found a maxi dress that, on my 6' frame, is ACTUALLY a maxi. As in, it reaches my toes. It even hits my ankles in sandals - thank you, City Chic!



This is a dress I can't wait to wear on a patio, with sunshine and a margarita to accessorize the look. I broke it out today (44 degrees and pouring rain) because the tropical floral print made me feel optimistic for sunny days to come. Paired with a white short-sleeved jacket, it fit in perfectly to the creative-corporate office in which I work. But...come on sunshine!

The Outfit:
Passion Flower Maxi dress- c/o City Chic
White Tuxedo Jacket- c/o City Chic
Black sandals- Jessica London
Mixed metal necklace- c/o Lane Bryant
Hammered metal bracelet- Lia Sophia

  3. Oh Pam, I cannot wait for a pool party! Patience has never been one of my virtues. :)

    Thanks, Leslie - I imagine at 5'1" you have the opposite problem, always having to hem too-long bottoms. :)

  4. That's a great accomplishment. I have trouble finding maxis that are long enough for me at 5'6".

  7. Wow. I've been looking for a maxidress that is actually long enough, as I am nearly 5-11. I have two now -- one was given to me by my sister -- and both are maddeningly short. Thanks Sara!
