Essie nails in "Urban Jungle" - must-have!





In my seemingly never-ending quest to find a petite friendly maxi dress, I scoured all of my favorite shops. Most were way too long, or they were a neutral color. I wanted something bright and fun, or maybe one with a print. I should have checked Loft sooner because they have such a great variety for petites, most of which can be found in-store rather than online. Well I found this gem during a sale and couldn't be happier with it! It met all of my criteria: the perfect length (no hemming required), a modest slit on the side to flirt it up a bit, and the most gorgeous shade of emerald that looks great now but can also transition easily into Fall. I think it's proof that shorter girls can still get in on the maxi trend without too much effort. I still prefer showing off my legs in a shorter dress, but a simple style like this one can also elongate the body quite nicely. 


Are you wearing maxi dresses this Summer?

  7. I adore maxi dresses in the summer...I JUST purchased a couple more from Old Navy (oops...but like I've posted about before - I'm always worried they'll go out of fashion so I buy them while I can LOL!!!).

    The emerald colour is SOOO gorgeous on you - you really found the perfect dress!

    1. Maxi dresses look stunning on you! I love your ootd posts featuring them and look forward to more! I need more ideas. I think a blazer or denim jacket looks great over long dresses so I'm hoping to find one like yours.
