Happy Monday! Well, we are back to real March weather here in NY but at least last week I was able to break out some new summer dresses. I got this polka dot dress at the Lulu*s Swap in Texas. Isn’t it just the cutest? I am pretty sure I will be wearing it every day this summer. It is one of those dresses that as you walk it just flows so beautifully that you can’t stop looking at the way the fabric is moving.

I am hoping to try some new lengths of dresses this summer. I love maxi dresses on other people but can’t seem to be comfortable in them myself. I am hoping maybe to try again this summer and maybe find a few more mid length like this dress.

Last time I wore a maxi dress I was 34 weeks pregnant with Rowan.

  4. I’m the same way with maxi dresses. I never feel comfortable in them for some reason. And I wish I did because on other people it seems like such a confident, effortless look.

  5. the first thing I saw was the necklace! yayy! you look lovely in this!

  6. So feminine and pretty! The pink belt could not be cuter, love the round sunnies, hope you have a fantastic week!

  7. I’m so glad that there’s at least one other lady out there that doesn’t like maxis either. I always feel so clumsy in them. This length on the other hand is one of my favorites.

  8. yay! Swapperazzi!!

  9. I’m loving the polka dots with the neon pink belt. Lovely combo =)

    I feel like my style recently changed more towards this direction too. Anything that’s mid-calf or maxi I instantly grab. I just makes me feel so girly! And I think you can pull off a maxi- just try to find a super feminine one at first, because then you won’t be able to help but strut around only because of the way it’ll move behind you. Instant confidence!

  23. I really love this midi length on you! I think once you get a maxi or two, you might be hooked just based on the comfort alone haha
