Sometimes you see a dress and just fall in love. It might not be your style, it might not look as good on you as it does on the tall thin model in the pic, but you just have to have it. This floral maxi dress was one of those dresses. Sometimes I buy those dresses and they look so good in the photo on the website, but not IRL and you wonder if maybe it was the model, the lighting, the pretty backdrop or way it was styled. But this one was just as good IRL. Sometimes I buy a dress that I love and even though it looks terrible on my body, I keep it because I just love it. I’ve been trying to do that less and less, but sometimes I just do it for fashun. In this case, I was worried this dress, with its loose shape, would overwhelm me and make me look huge. But I was pleasantly surprised that even though I’m not super tall, it still works and I don’t actually feel like a blimp wearing it. I wasn’t sure if it would be practical for city life (and the vibe really works for when we’re in the country for the weekend), but I actually find with wedges or booties and maybe a structured jacket if it’s cool enough, it totally works for life at the office in the concrete jungle.
