The Maxi is Back

The maxi never really left, but it was put on hold for a few months while we endured a pretty terrible winter. Year after year, the feeling is exactly the same, when I slip on one of my maxi dresses for the first time of the season-elation. Excitement. Relief (that its finally warm). It really never gets old, does it? I think the maxi would be my outfit of choice to wear the rest of my life if I had to choose one thing-that’s how much I love a good maxi.

This past weekend, York had a Go Green in the City festival, which was to highlight businesses that were green and to celebrate Earth Day coming up this week. This was the sixth year for the festival and was greatly attended! There was even an awesome write up about it that I was fortunate enough to be mentioned in!

I was fortunate enough to set up a table and some garment racks in front of my store, just to give people a little preview of what I will be selling, and to serve as a little “hey here I am!” I couldn’t have been more pleased at the turnout and it makes me THAT much more excited for when the store opens!

I wore this maxi dress for the day, knowing that I would be standing most of the time- I wanted to be comfortable and not feel restricted so for me it was the only choice! (PS- I can’t wait until this stupid Bells Palsy leaves for good so I don’t have to look like a frigid bitch in all of my photos!)

Outfit Details:

Dress: Dress Up Boutique /// Jacket: Gap (similar) /// Wedges: Target (old) /// Bag: Target /// Bracelets: Stella and Dot /// Sunglasses: Steve Madden via TJ MAXX /// Necklace: Brin and Bell

I hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Easter! Loved spending time with my family- so thankful how giving they are of their time and love!

    That dress is gorgeous! You look gorgeous! It looks like something a celebrity would wear. I love it, but really can't do sleeveless – boo 🙁 But seriously, you look amazing!

    OMG, we can wear maxi dresses and skirts and NOT wear snow pants and boots. Spring is HERE;)
