Maxi Moment

I don’t know about you, but when the weather gets warmer I immediately gravitate towards maxi dresses. There’s something about the easiness and comfort of them that just gets me every single time! They’re the perfect piece to throw on when it’s warm, humid, and just about every piece of clothing in your closet seems too hot to put on! When I stumbled upon this maxi dress from Darling Dispositions, I knew I had to add it to my maxi dress collection. The print combined with the back cutout is different than any other maxi I own. I love that it can easily be paired with sandals or dressed up a bit for a night out! This dress will certainly be getting it’s fair share of wear this summer!

P.S. I am 5’2 and I did have to hem this dress!

  5. Did you need to hem the dress or was that perfect length already? I'm on the petite side (5'3" with zero a curve) and have the hardest time finding a maxi dress that doesn't need a trip to the tailor. You look gorgeous, too!
