Mondays are for Maxis

Two years ago, if you would have asked me to put on a maxi dress, I would have told you that I’d prefer to not look like I was going to Prom on any given day. I felt maxi dresses were too formal, and couldn’t be styled in a way that made them feel “everyday.” I felt swallowed alive in every maxi dress I tried on and I was never tall enough to strut around in one without stepping all over the hem.

I  am not sure what has changed, I can tell you I’m not any taller, but I adore maxi dresses this season. I’d venture to say I’ve added more maxi dresses to my closets the summer than swimwear, and that is saying something! Here are a few I’ve purchased, and would recommend, if your maxi obsessed, or, soon-to-be maxi obsessed.

(Side note: Thanks to my mom for taking these photos while the twins ran rogue. They may have drank fountain water, may have tormented the cashiers at Williams & Sonoma for candy, and most definitely required us to purchase them new outfits since they smelled liked pond water!)

This one is only $21 from SHEIN. I did order a few other items that I returned for quality reasons, but this dress is so cute and good quality for the price!

I am undecided what my favorite part of this dress is…the front slit or the tie back! I would recommend sizing up one in this dress! By: Vici Collection

Midnight Flower Asymmetrical Maxi Dress,                        Main,
                        color, Rebel Red

I sized up in this one too. The length is prefect for us shorter ladies, and it works great with a pair of flats! Also only $47 with free shipping and free returns from Nordstrom!

I wanted to also add a few notes on the retailers I purchased these maxi’s from:

  1. Shein – Great for VERY inexpensive, fun pieces; however, quality is dependent on the piece. Definitely read the individual item reviews!
  2. Vici Collection – At this time, Vici Collection does not have free returns so when the sizing on the floral maxi was a little off I was pretty bummed. However, they collaborate heavily with bloggers to offer 20% off pretty much all the time. If you’ve been wanting to give them a try, I used the code KBSTYLED20 to get my discount. I think their pieces are unique and worth giving a try (especially if you know styles that typically fit your body well).
  3. Nordstrom – Well, still my favorite retailer. Free shipping, free returns, and something in everyone’s price range.

Love,

Emma
