dresses to the max(i)

ever have one of those days where you have a brilliant idea for a blog post but when you're reading through blogs first thing in the morning, someone else has taken the words right out of your mouth?

yeah. that's me today. it's not entirely surprising though, because emily always has great taste and fantastic style and knows lil tips and tricks to make things work that other people may not even consider. i dare you to not love her finds. and not get addicted to her blog. (yeah, it's a whole boatload of awesome.)

although i thought they looked somewhat silly at first (read: i couldn't pull them off and thus held a grudge), maxi dresses are starting to grow on me. i see them more and more and can't help but wonder if i was too hasty with my original judgement?

i have a daydream of wearing one at my cottage... lounging around on a hammock in the sun, reading a good book with my oh-so-stylin sandals kicked off into the grass.

yeah. maybe i'll give them a second chance after all.

be sure to have a look at emily's original post about them over at cupcakes and cashmere!

other links i'm lovin today:
what blogs and links are you loving today? now that i'm moderately caught up on my blog reads, it's time to add some new ones to my list!

I love maxi dresses, too. Oh my goodness, I wish I was wearing one right now. They are so lovely and comfy...

I love these dresses. I started liking them during my last pregnancy because they're so comfotable and flowy (is that a wor? lol) Though mine were shorter.
I may get some for this summer..

these dresses so cute. hard to find the right one when your short like me though.

StunningAnnaK said...

Thanks so much for the tip! Off to attempt that now.

The best things are the things we make ourselves!

No maxi dresses for me, sadly. I always have this odd feeling that I'm wearing those terrible full length nightgowns my mom bought me when I was little and my legs would get all tangled up in them and then I would trip. Maybe slightly unfair to the dresses, but I just can't do it.

I love your choices, especially the purple one the colour is just wonderful
: )

Thank you for the link love!:) I look forward to checking out some of the others!

That happens to me all the time--I was actually working on a maxi dress post myself. I always think it is great to have a second, third or even forth perspective!

Julia said...

PS. I just tagged you darling!

XOXO

Emily said...

I think those Maxi dresses are so cute on other people, but whenever I put one on I feel like I'm wearing a nightgown out in public! They're all just gorgeous.... -e
