Summer is made for a Maxi Dress

Posted on: June 29, 2014

I don’t know if you are seeing the same thing in your neck of the woods, but in mine

Maxi dresses being worn everywhere!   

I seriously can’t go anywhere lately without spotting a dozen women in maxi dresses! 

Linking up with Visible Monday!


When the Summer Style Me Pretty Challenge, suggested a maxi paired with a denim vest, I couldn’t have been more delighted, because wearing vests is right up my alley…

The funny thing is that more often and not I tend to add knitted shrugs to maxi dresses , so this is a twist for me and a great thing about doing a styling challenge.   


I just love the ease and comfort of a maxi! 

I absolutely get the biggest kick out of the fact that as a petite woman, that I can buy a maxi and not have to wear it…

I guess as my mother would have said, it’s thanks to her family Campbell DNA with long arms a long legs…

Of course it’s funny to think as a 53″ woman, in comparison to my sister and brother, that somehow we are similar…


I backed of the self tanner this past week , but can see I need to add a little…

I’ve noticed a very funny phenomenon these last few weeks of wearing my fedora more often….

I seem to be catching the eye of men more often …

It’s really very funny….

Dear Readers.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and had time to relax and spend time with family and friends.

Weekends really are what we live for!  

As for my outfit, the dress is one I found on (the link is to all the maxi’s currnetly offered at fabulous prices!) 

vest found last season at Cato(they have several available at this link!)

, sandals from Payless and purse from Nine West outlet store…


I am grateful that I caught up on sleep and felt much better today!

I am grateful that I had the energy to make several batches of Weight Watcher Vegetable Fritattas, to keep me on track this next week  and beyond as I froze some!   

I am grateful for being a mother of boys…. they truly bring so much joy to my life!

I am grateful that my son heard back from his roommate for next year , as I didn’t realize how much the week without a response had stressed my kid who doesn’t get stressed…

I am grateful that my daughter’s birthday is coming next weekend and that we will have a day to celebrate her before she heads off to grad school!  

I am grateful for my brother and his talk and reminder to have faith and turn my worries over in prayer!

Really cute maxi dress, and the hat is perfect. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

This dress looks lovely on you, and the vest and the hat give it just enough edge. I’ve been experimenting with a maxi dress lately, I usually find them a bit tricky (too long so I step on them, or they make me look like Edina from Absolutely Fabulous…). I am determined to make this look work for me, though, as a maxi dress is perfect for hot weather…

Thanks for commenting. I would highly recommend spending less on a maxi and taking it to a tailor for hemming! Maxis are worth it!

Love the maxi print on you and paired with the cute denim vest, so pretty, I also love the hat, you are a hat girl!
from the link up, jess

please stop by

yes, I am a hat girl! I’ve used them to keep sun off my face my entire adult life and at almost 49 can see it was worth it!!!! Thanks for stopping by!

On the fly, but had to stop by and say how well you rock that. Am challenged by prints on maxi dresses, but will keep looking!

The dress is lovely, and it suits you so well, nice styling with the denim waistcoat and hat too
