Maxi dress season is pretty much year round for me.  Although I’m super petite, I love wearing maxi dresses and don’t even mind having to get them altered. Worn right, I feel as if maxi dresses can make you appear taller by wearing one color or pattern from head-to-toe.  Luckily I found this darling cold shoulder floral maxi dress that didn’t require any alterations. ASOS offers a great line for petites and I often find cute and affordable trendy pieces from them. I didn’t see the dress in a regular length but it does come in a tall length for you gals that don’t have a height disadvantage ;).

Fashion, Spring, Travel


I feel very fortunate that my husband and I have so many opportunities to travel together. We spent last week in Charleston hanging out with our good friends and enjoying all of the Southern hospitality this beautiful city has to offer. My husband takes all of my photos for me so it’s rare when I can get him in front of the camera as well. I love having him by my side and thankful we were able to get some photos of us together for a change! And we didn’t purposely match that day but we did! I’ve been loving 2 piece sets lately (see my previous 2 piece lemon outfit) and this eyelet set from J.Crew was too darling to resist. I love that that combined they make this chic look but also work so well as separates. The pieces were versatile on the trip as I was able to make different outfits on different days – I paired the top with a yellow maxi skirt and the skirt with a chambray shirt. My husband was very happy that I was able to save luggage space by packing versatile items.

Today I’m sharing this flirty white lace dress that’s as cute from the back as it is from the front! I love lace dresses that have that extra special detail to them and this one wins with the cutest ruffles. I’ve been asked a lot about my experience with shopping at Chicwish and I must say although it takes a while to get your merchandise (~ 2-3 weeks), the quality is surprisingly good for the affordability. This dress is only $56! I would order from them if you aren’t in a rush to get your items but do want something trendy and cute. And you can see where I like to splurge – my handbags :). I’m wearing my favorite Chanel Vanity Bag – it was such a journey to get this bag (I called a billion Chanel stores domestic and international before getting it through the personal shopping department at Saks Fifth Avenue) and I’m clearly obsessed with it.

It’s the season for maxi dresses and I can’t get enough of the floral print on this gorgeous maxi from my boutique, Morning Lavender. I love the off the shoulder vibes as well as the higher waist line which makes any gal look taller. I’m contemplating cutting off the halter straps (easy DIY) to make this dress true off the shoulder. FYI – I didn’t have the dress altered in length – I’m wearing 4 inch platform heels here!

It looks like the off the shoulder trend isn’t going anywhere and I’m not complaining one bit! I adore off the shoulder styles as they are very flattering for my neckline and I love finding them a variety of styles and prints. This fitted, bardot style dress from ASOS has a gorgeous Spring print and its petite sizing makes the fit perfect for my frame. I love pairing a beautiful print like this with simple, feminine accessories!
