Maxi~licious

Today I want to share with you my maxi which I have been getting quite a few miles out of lately. Just a bit of back story on me and Maxi's (or any long dress/skirt for that matter).... I am only 5'5 on a good day, so I always felt that long dresses made me look shorter and squattier. I avoided long dresses all my life, except for the occasional prom dress. I loved the maxi trend that popped up a few summers ago, but I always felt self conscious wearing them. Currently I own two and up until about 3 weeks ago had only worn them twice. I have no idea what has gotten into me, but I am all about this maxi!! I recently wore this entire ensemble to an event in my home town (where I got quite a few compliments), so I wanted to share it with you :) This entire outfit cost me under $30.00.
