I’ve bought a few maxi dresses over the years. Whenever I see maxi dresses or hear they are back “in trend” I think I’m too short for them. But then I remember I already have 3 and love them barefoot around the house, with leather flip-flops and of course, wedges and espadrilles.

I found a few recently at Forever 21. Actually, all the maxi dresses I have are from F21. I figure, why spend a whole lot of money on a trend, right? Anyway, I’ve had one for three years that is still in great shape. From F21! Love it!

Navy/Gray Tie-Dye Maxi Dress (not online yet), Medium, $24.80
Similar version in a short dress here: Knit Comfort Dress

Gaimo Espadrilles…found at Marshall’s last summer.

Here is another maxi I bought during my Forever 21 shopping trip.

I bought it in a teal color as well but that’s not online in the long version. The short version in the teal is here, Erica Ruffle Dress.

Don’t forget Gigi’s tips on “How to Shop at Forever 21“. It’s a lifesaver!

Readers – I’ve been so busy I haven’t been very good about getting dressed for the day. I’ve been all about the shorts and tees. (But not Nike shorts. Those are for working out only.)

I’ve been waiting to wear this skirt since I purchased it and actually tried on this shirt with the skirt in the store. One of the make SA’s gave me the same color belt, but skinny, to try with it.

Tee: J Crew
Skirt: J Crew Wildcat Ombre Pencil Skirt
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Miss Sixty
The shirt is the Vintage Cotton Tee and is truly NEON PINK. It doesn’t really look that way in the pics but trust me. I was glowing without a black-light. I do like the belt with it and Husband actually liked the whole outfit, which is not normal. The only part I don’t really like are the shoes. I’m still on the hunt for some black sling-back heels of some kind.
Have a great day!
