unknown dress (similar & more options) // J.Crew wedges // Monogram Online bracelet
I've always loved the idea of maxi-dresses, but I've never felt like they would look good on my 5'4" (and three quarters) figure. When I found this dress at TJ Maxx for only $25 though I felt like I had to try it. I was originally planning on wearing it to my cousin's wedding at the beginning of August but with the heat and humidity a long black dress just wasn't going to work. So of course I had to find some reason to wear the dress (just like for my early birthday dinner). While I'm still not totally convinced I can pull of the maxi dress I do love the way it is dressy and casual at the same time. Even though summer is over back in MA (and did we ever really have a summer? It was so cold...) it is still in the 90s during the day here in Madrid so I have a feeling I'll be getting a lot of use out of this dress.
Hope all of you going back to school today have an amazing first day of classes!
