Maxed Out

 My Threads: Dress: Forever 21, Hat: H&M, Sandals: Volcom, Sweater: H&M, Clutch: BareEscentuals, Jewelry: Italy, Fossil, a boutique

I've had this maxi (and another one) for two or three years now, but I still feel iffy about it sometimes. Most days, I'm all for a breezy maxi. They're comfortable, soft, and look put together with minimal effort. But some days, they make me feel like I'm wearing a muumuu. I guess they're just one of those things you have to be in the mood for.

I'd also like to note that I sadly did not wear this dress to the beach this week. But I will. Soon. Hopefully. Because that's where it belongs. And that's where I belong.

Maybe we should all just take the summer off. Anyone agree?

Happy Friday! Hope your weekend is warm and sunny.
