It’s Marvelous Monday, everybody! This is a weekly blog challenge between myself and four other fabulous fatshion bloggers. Make sure to go check out their outfits today, too! Links are at the bottom of the post.
Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!
This week’s theme: Maxi Dress/Skirt
Why yes, my hair is a mess, and I am wearing the same shoes that I’ve worn pretty much exclusively for the past couple of weeks. Bad fashion blogger!
I clearly enjoyed taking pictures in this long, flowy dress a bit too much, which is why you now have to look at all of these.
It’s the first maxi dress or skirt I’ve ever owned, and I have to say, I’m a fan! I like the movement, the way it looks put-together but is even comfier than most of my pajamas. This one is perhaps a little long for me to wear with flats, but it looks nice with the heels. And the boots are a nice way to make it not too summery, I think.
I kept the accessories simple: just gold hoop earrings and a skinny gold belt.
Of course, even though Spring has finally sprung (sort of), it was a bit chilly to go out without a jacket. So I paired this with my black faux leather jacket, a staple in my wardrobe. I also have a brown one, though–might that have been better? I couldn’t decide. I mean, the dress is black with rust-colored and tan colorblocking, so I guess I could have gone either way.
And finally, a close-up so you can see just how messy my hair really is…Also, my nice pink lipstick!
