Outfit of the Day: We Can All Maxi.

I'm pretty sure I spoiled this in the comments recently, but I did keep that maxi dress I talked about in my recent shopping trip post. I have never really considered a maxi dress because I'm not tall and I like my legs, so why hide them? But I'd started to really envy Marianne's closet full of floaty dresses - she always looks so nice and so comfortable! I can do that too, right? Of course. And truly, I bought this dress because it made me feel good. I haven't actually worn it yet (it feels like a going-out dress to me) but I tried it on to see if it still made me feel good (it does):

This is the Eden dress from Evereve. It's so floaty and light! I tried to get a photo of the back so you can see the tassels, but I failed. Anyway, there are tassels. I also love the intense colors - the blue is very cobalt and the brown bits are coppery. I am wearing a medium here though I also tried on the large because the waist feels slightly snug. Overall the medium was a much better fit, so go with your normal size. 

I love the side vents! I like to show a little leg and of course I'm wearing my Birkenstock Gizeh sandals (similar color.) For a similar dress vibe, this beachy dress looks like a great casual option and this tie-dye flutter sleeve dress brings all the drama. I also like this geo print midi dress from the Gap and oooh, this one too! That's so freaking pretty (and she's wearing Birks!) 

This giant face pic is to show you the colors of the dress and also to show you my new tiny necklace from Quince! They have the prettiest minimal jewelry. This is the White Sapphire Choker Necklace and before you think I've gone all high end, it's under $70. I love it by itself but it's also a great layering piece. Just a tiny bit of sparkle is all this dress needs. (If you're tempted, use my link for $10 off your first purchase at Quince! Full disclosure: I also get $10 credit.)

Finally, I think it's appropriate that I'm posting my long flowy dress today because it's Marianne's birthday! Happy Birthday, Marianne! We all wanna be in your day gown cult


  1. You look so great! When I tried it on I had it back to front so you could see the tassels. The print is so well done, I think it would be good for a Zoom meeting too.

  2. I love that dress with the Birks! I just bought the floaty Gap dress with the shoulder ties. Love it, but it does squish the girls a bit.
