Outfit of the Week - A Maxi Dress for a Pretty Day





 // dress: F21 // jacket: target (similar) // shoes: H&M (similar) // watch: fossil //

Can I just take a minute really quickly to comment on how wonderful maxi dresses are? Guys, I'm obsessed. They are lightweight, comfy, look fancy and best of all, they keep me from having to shave my legs. It's basically a mini victory every time I put one on in the morning.

This dress was a gift to myself for my birthday (yeah, still talking about my birthday over here - I get a full week, right?) and I'll probably be wearing it all through the fall. Speaking of fall, we are having the most wonderful cold front in Oklahoma. It's been in the 70s-80s (!) and I am trying to soak in every minute before it goes back up to 120 degrees and I have to start shaving my legs again :)

  20. Your maxi dress is adorable - love those blues and greens together. Definitely one of my favorite combinations :) Love that you admitted you don't have to shave your legs! Shaving is the only thing I hate about summer -- isn't that awful? Day in, day out. Ugghhh.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
