Yesterday, I went into the office for work (I normally work from home) and an amazing thing happened – 3 people told me I looked like I lost weight!!! This either means (1) that I looked like a total fatso the last time I was in the office (a real possibility) or (2) that my new dress took off 10 pounds. I’m going to go with option 2.
A few months ago, Sarah from A Beach Cottage posted about the Maxi dress. I’ve never bought one because I thought it was a style I couldn’t wear. I commented on Sarah’s post that I love Maxi dresses, but don’t wear them because carry my weight in my lower half (yes, that’s why I post so many pictures from my boobs up). Sara replied that I should try them out again so I decided to live on the edge and bought Maxi dress.
This was my workplace appropriate outfit yesterday:
I added the cardigan because I thought I looked too naked without it.
I actually really like it! The best part…it is so comfortable!!! It’s a non-clingy fabric and shape (a must for me) and very cool. The only issue?
It’s not the right size, and probably a size too big. But it was the only one at Kohl’s and it really only needed to be taken in underneath the bust line. I used safety pins to fix this…because I’m so crafty.
One on each side. The dress was only about $30 (with 20% off) and I’m totally happy with it. And, as it turns out, I’m just about the right height (5’8) for this dress. No alterations needed on the length!
I love it and unfortunately (for you) you will probably see me wearing this every day this summer.
***Thank you to my friend, Keri, for taking one million pictures of me after dinner last night. We had some difficulty and yes, the ones I posted were the good ones.***
