When the maxi dress trend came out, I wasn’t having any of it. How could a floor length anything look good on a short (5’1”) girl like me? I just figured that maxi dresses should be left to the tall girls. But last summer, I got brave, went down to the local Marshall’s and grabbed a few different styles to try on. I selected ones that had some shape (a cinched waist, v-neckline) and were somewhat flowy. To my surprise, the maxi dresses didn’t over power my frame nor did it make me look shorter, which is what I thought a maxi dress would do. I finally picked one up for $19.99. At that price, I figured it was worth a try.
There have been too many mornings (and sometimes afternoons) where I have sat and stared into my closet and thought to myself, ‘I have nothing to wear.’ I know that some of you reading this know exactly what I am talking about! After a few long sighs, and without fail, I end up pulling out a pair of skinny jeans and a T. This is my go to uniform on the weekends and what you will most likely find me in while I am running around Boston checking off my to do list.
