What I Wear Wednesday

perhaps I've been in the Caribbean for too long.... but I still love to rock a Maxi dress.
I usually like them in bold colors and patterns.

and I'm 5'11... much easier to pull off the Maxi for me than it is for the 5'3 girl.
Nothing against the 5'3 girls out there... I'm totally jealous of your ability to wear rompers and one piece bathing suits!  my torso is too loooooooooong to get the material to stretch! ugh.

 my beautiful husband 
James Bond themed party
 1. Black Print - Target
2. Blue strips - Lauren Conrad
3. Crazy Print - Target
4. Purple - Target
5. Electric Blue - gift, no clue where its from.
I've been reading a lot online and in magazines about the long skirt, or maxi skirt trend... and I have to say I may agree with these guys over at Glamour
I'm not a fan. Why do I like long dresses but not long skirts??
Maybe I'll change my mind the same way I did with leggings, skinny jeans, gladiator sandals.... esh. a lot of things.

What do you think about long skirts? for them?!
What about my maxi dresses? time to retire them?

I linked up with The Pleated Poppy , No Model Lady , and For the Love of Blogs :)
and after seeing those girls, I've seriously got to work on my fashion photography skills. self timer will be come my best friend.

saw you linked up on the pleated poppy... and i could not agree with you more. i LOVE a maxi dress (im about 5'7) but i do NOT wear long skirts. i also love to put a cropped, tighter fitting cardigan over maxis when its a little chilly at night. the blue is my fave! :)

Great dresses! I love maxi dresses and maxi skirts, especially if the maxi skirt is worn with a fitted top.

LOVE all of your dresses. Blue looks GREAT on you!
I'm one of those 5'3" girls and am super jealous that you get to wear those maxi dresses and it looks great!

i love the maxi dresses on you!
thanks for commenting on my blog!

No Model Lady said...

Oh, man...I used to rant about how unflattering skinny jeans were on curvy (anything but ballerina thin) girls. Now that's all I wear! Some trends stick! I love the long flowing skirts b/c I can wear whatever top I want to dress it up or down.

I love them, I they offer style and comfort. Would you like to link up to my Fashion Friday?

I'm 5'2", so maxi dress or maxi skirt = mop. :(
