Whatcha Wearing?
Maxi dress available here in my Etsy shop
Rainbow wedges from Target
Ring from Claire's

Remember Claire's Accessories at the mall? I hadn't thought about that place in a long time, but I'm positive that's where I bought this superhero-ish glitter lightning bolt ring long, long ago. It's still an awesome and totally appropriate accessory in my book!

What do you think about the pattern mixing happening here? I have to say I hesitated a bit before pairing plaid with rainbow stripes, but I think it works. Also, this is pretty much the most comfortable dress ever, and it would even be full maxi length on someone not quite so jolly green giant as me. At 5'10" it can be difficult finding maxi dresses that actually reach my ankles, let alone the ground! That's why I was so excited to find the dress I wore back in this post. It's so long that my feet disappear!

I'm linking up with Real Girl Glam and Transatlantic Blonde.

    1. Yeah, I'm sure shorter girls have just as many issues with maxi dresses as we tall girls do! It's such a challenge to find the perfect one!

  2. I really love how this dress has such a kimono feel. Those shoes are also beautiful. I'm kinda jealous of them.

    1. I actually bought the shoes for a glam rock costume I wore to a party about 5 years ago. I love them too, but don't wear them enough.

  6. I actually like that this maxi doesn't go all the way to the ground and those sandals are so fun. Thanks for linking up to Real Girl Style!
