printed maxi


WHEN I SAW that the Gap was having a sale, I knew there was going to be trouble. I immediately had my fitting room piled with cute striped tees, white jeans, summer dresses, and this beautiful maxi dress. Now, as a petite girl of only 5'2" I am always skeptical of maxi dresses or skirts on my body. Usually they're too long, too baggy in the waist, or just make me look... odd. But this printed maxidress stole my heart. The length is perfect, it's comfortable yet can be dressed up or down. And okay, I'll let you in on a little secret. I just so happened to be perusing the Gap Kids section and came across this classic jean jacket. Gap Boys! I guess that's a perk of being vertically challenged :) Have a happy Tuesday everyone!

  5. You're so right, Chelle - as a petite girl, a good maxi dress is so hard to find! It looks like you've got a real gem in this adorable number from Gap, though. I love the black and white print, and it's just perfect with your denim jacket :)
