wearing - 7/50

pullover - Loft // maxi dress - TJ Maxx // flats - Target // watch - Charming Charlie's // midi ring - UO

Whoever decided maxi dresses should be main stream street style did not have a big butt. Or thighs. In fact, they were either 8 feet tall or didn't have legs at all. I fought maxi dresses with everything in me, but somehow gave in to this dress during the hunt for something to wear to a wedding this past September. 

Since then, our relationship has consisted mostly of side-eyeing each other before I throw my hands in the air & slowly back-up - Nodding, with my tongue pressed into my cheek, admitting defeat once more. I THINK the answer is wearing something long-ish over it, as pictured above, since the waistline of this particular dress falls at my hips = danger zone. #fatbottomedgirlprobz

But that Day 5 top knot, though.

  1. Thank. You. My hips and butt are so curvy that comfy as they may be, maxi's that cling to my shape look so ridiculous most of the time! I like them better when they're more loose/flowy and therefore fall more straight. You look great! And yes, that top knot is perf.

    1. I have a couple maxi skirts that sit at my actual waist, & it seems to be much more flattering... But I also feel like they look really full (because hips, haaayyy) & therefore somewhat formal? Am I crazy?


because lezz be frandz.
