A few years ago I would have never dared to wear a midi dress. Never ever ever! I always had this misconception that they made me look shorter than I already am. I'm 5'1 for reference. I'd always be pretty envious of all my taller friends that could pull it off. I'm not really sure where the shift changed, but one day I decided I didn't care, and that it was probably all in my head (like the majority of our insecurities). Let me tell you that I love midi dresses, skirts and those baggy pant things! I think the official term is culottes? Anyways, midi dresses are super comfortable during a long day out and about. You never have to worry about your dress flying up in the wind, and you don't have to shave your whole leg! Sorry for the TMI, but it's true.
We all know I'm a fan of the relaxed fit anything and everything so this dress goes in the "love" pile! I love how bright it is with the extra large checkered pattern. It's different than what I've seen lately. I also have been excited for cute dresses with sleeves lately! Please don't ask me why, because there's no real reason besides the fact that sometimes it's nice to have non-sleeveless options!
When this dress first came in the mail, I was all about wearing sneakers with it, but in the exact same package came these pretty pink babies! If any of y'all follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I recently retired my favorite gold slides from last summer ::sad face::. I've been on quite a kick with blush lately and decided to replace the gold, with these blush slides from ASOS! I'm not sure how versatile they'll be with my wardrobe, but I'm definitely going to see how far they take me. Goal of the summer? Not to buy another pair of sandals. Yeah right. BUT I'm proud of myself for even having the thought!
Below I liked EXACT and similar items in case you're like me and love to see all the options!
