To The Max

6 Comments

I found out too late that yesterday was Maxi day at Every Body, Every Wear. I was too late to join in on the day, but I was inspired to wear a maxi dress today. I love the colour & pattern of this dress & the denim jacket keeps it from feeling too dressy. I started out wearing sandals, but quickly changed into boots. There will be time enough for sandals when it’s not so cold.

Speaking of denim jackets, I am on the hunt for the “perfect” denim jacket. I’ve had a lot of denim jackets in my life, but they’ve all been & gone. I found the one I’m wearing today at a thrift store & it’s ok, but it’s very stiff & not exactly what I’m looking for. I’m really working hard to not give in to the compulsive shopper in me & buy things just because they are on sale, or because I happen to like the look of something. I know that I can use shopping as a drug because it makes me feel good. Anyway, I’m trying to be more selective in what I buy – thinking about things that will add value to my wardrobe, things that will last & wait if I have to to get them. I’m learning!

  1. I like how your necklace picks up on some of the colors in your dress – pretty! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment! 🙂

  2. I love the bold colors of this maxi!

  3. Great maxi dress! Very summery colors. It’s too bad you just missed Maxi day on EBEW (that happened to me with last month’s theme!). I’m glad you went ahead and posted anyway!

  4. I am SO coveting that maxi! You look very bohemian chic;) Thanks for dropping by my blog to say hi! Have a great weekend!

  5. I love how you styled your vibrant print maxi with a denim jacket for EBEW. The sunglasses and necklace really pulled the look all together. You look great! Can’t wait to see what you put together for the next EBEW challenge.
