Mad for Maxi

Unlike previous years, I've been living in skirts and dresses this summer. Pants have been mostly relegated to unseasonably cool/rainy days. It's a long time coming, but I've finally realized that jeans aren't the only casual clothing item out there. I can make dresses and skirts fit my casual lifestyle, too. Especially ones with a longer length because they're great for pulling double duty between work and home. Yes, my uh duh moment couldn't have come at a better time.

  2. I've been looking for the right striped maxi skirt and dress, and brilliant to macgyver for both looks! :) growing up in savannah, we live in dresses there. It's almost a thing to do. I remember my out of town friends visiting and saying "we're packing dresses" bc that's all everyone goes out in. :)

    1. That reminds me of my years at college. "Guys in ties, girls in pearls" -- we're one of the rare schools where the students dress up for football games... until the then-football coach started a new tradition =/ The southern way of life rocks!

    1. I don't know about "nice" anymore... the humidity is getting harder and harder to handle. But of course, I shouldn't be complaining because I'm sure it's 10x worse in Vegas.

  4. I love the simplicity of this outfit but it's so chic at the same time. I am on the hunt for a few maxi dresses for my upcoming vacation but nothing caught my eyes so far. Have a great week, Cee!

    1. Definitely give Old Navy a try. In fact, they're having a $15+ dresses sale as I type.

  5. Maxi dress for the win! They're a fave of mine for work because I like contorting my legs at my desk (sit on my feet / sit indian style / etc) and the flowiness / length allows me to to do that without anyone noticing :)
