What I’m Wearing:
Hat: Eugenia Kim for Target
Sandals: Miss Trish for Target
Bracelet: Marika King Designs and Kate Gray Designs
Again with the hat but I really am loving this hat for the summer. It can go with my casual outfit to this cute maxi dress. I get lots of questions about maxi dresses… “are maxi dress still in?”, “can short girls wear them”,”should I wear a patterned or a solid maxi if I’m short?” and I’m here to say that YES short girls CAN wear maxi dresses! I’m 5’2″ and I’m even wearing flats here so you can see that it still works. I think both patterned and solid works as long as with patterned maxi dresses, you keep your accessories very minimal. Let the dress be the focus and nothing else should fight for the attention.
I’ve never been much of a target shopper for things like clothes and accessories. Target is more of a place where I buy cleaning supplies and such. However after seeing so many bloggers with such cute stuff form Target and after my good experience with the Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges, and Eugenia Kim hats, I find myself looking at their shoes and accessories even more now. I found these cute Miss Trish for Target sandals and love the little seahorse embellishment. I will have to say though, that I’m quite disappointed with these sandals. While they are pretty comfortable, the back straps do not stay on my feet and was constantly falling all day long so that they were under my feet rather than staying on the back of my heels. I have them on as tight as I can but they still slip. It might be because Target does not carry a 5 and so I settled for the 5.5 so maybe I just need to punch an extra hole in the strap so that they fit. But still… I didn’t like having to deal with the slipping strap all day. I put them away, not sure if I will wear them again.
Anyway, back to the dress. I love that this dress is made out of a jersey fabric as it makes it so comfortable that sometimes when I’m just lounging around the house I put this on. I actually have two maxi dresses from this brand, the other one is black and has straps. Since they are both so comfy and look great, they’ve also become my travel dresses. I’ve been wearing them on my plane rides to tropical destinations. I just wear a cardigan over it so that I’m warm enough on the plane.
I can’t find my dress online anymore but I love this brand as the fabric they use is so comfy. Love this little dress with the ruffles and it’s currently on sale for $54!
They sold out of my hat a long time ago but they still have this one available online.
Although these didn’t quite work out for me, they are still really cute. I like the black coral ones too!
