Maxi Dress

This maxi dress feels like butter. The jersey is super soft. It's like moving around in the most comfortable blanket. Since the dress is strapless, I decided to wear a vest in order to wear this to work. It looks more like I'm on my way to a resort than to work. But it's a gorgeous day and I don't care.

I love this messy bun. It's even messier now because I was able to drive to work with the top down on my convertible. I love driving with the top down.

 Happy Friday!
Dress: J Crew
Vest: Old Navy
Scarf: Gap

so yeah, I finally accidentally bought a maxidress (did not understand proportion on model versus 5'2" me...and it actually looks good (I had a policy against them as not for short girls and kinda like a nightgown). But I still struggle with the nightgown feel...it's either TOO fancy (floor length) or TOO casual (stretch jersey comfort zone), but NEITHER feels right for work. Nonetheless, WHEN am I ever gonna wear it then? Too long for the beach, too casual really for dress up (because of the stretch jersey). Closet Shopper, help Closet Smarts get her smarts back! Until then it just hangs on my closet door and taunts me...

What a fun maxi! I can't seem to find a maxi dress that fits me well. I'm short and they are always way too long for me.

Wait, you have a convertible?

Slut.

Kat said...

I think your next blog post should be of you IN your convertible.

You remind me of Jessica Alba because she always wears big scarves.

Convertible! How cool is that! I just love the colour and stripes of this maxi dress and how you made it work appropriate but still casual and fun! Love the messy bun- I have yet to perfect one!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Fabric that feels like butter?!? Sounds like heaven. ;)

Love the dress! You know, I've never purchased anything from J.Crew before. I seriously need to change that asap!!

Love that J.Crew maxi...I almost bought it! Hope you're having a great week, Traci!
