This is my first installation of my “Summer Essential” Series. Sponsored Post: All of the opinions shared are mine alone.
Finding a maxi dress that is light, fun, comfortable and fit’s my tiny 5’0 short but round frame was like asking for a magical wish! Well, I must of done some good this year as I found a maxi dress I didn’t need to roll up, tie, belt or alter to not trip over the length.
Life isn’t easy being short and beautiful *big smile* but there are times like this that the universe aligns and remembers that Petite-Plus is a very significant presence in the Plus Size community. I’m waving my arms to the sky mouthing “THANK YOU!” This just doesn’t happen very often in my fashion world…. it just doesn’t.
Living in California has a great perk when it comes to the weather. Contrary to popular demand we do update our wardrobes through the seasons. Summer is the most busiest when choosing pieces that will protect us from a gnarly sun burn but not too heavy that have us running to the nearest air conditioned room. It is doubly difficult when these pieces are meant for work too.
A maxi dress is a staple piece for Summer wardrobes. They’re comfy and pretty to wear and scream Summer FUN whenever you wear them. They’re perfect to wrap around your legs when we sit on the sand or grass and can be worn when riding a bike. Don’t forget the running around with the children and fur babies in your life, this has you covered!
The ribbed jersey striped maxi dress is a classic and due to this design’s perfect length I wore it with my sandals. It can be dressed up by switching the shoes or wear it with my favorite spiky canvas tennis shoes for a more active/sporty or casual-fun look. Add conversations pieces such as a cat sunglasses, necklace or hat and you will be the fashion icon for many that spot you.
No matter what your Summer Day may bring, you will be ready for the adventure the long summer days is ready to bring in a maxi dress!
