maxi you later, alligator

It's time to break out the maxi dresses. (Or the ultimate-comfort-stretch-tube dresses as they are known around my apartment by me.) This striped one is neat because it's simple enough to make cardigan coordinating really easy. Wait, judging something on its cardigan pairing potential isn't an actual thing? Noted.

Maxi dresses also rid the impossible feat of matching shirts to pants. (Wow what a chore.) I'm also hoping that with a little handiwork and clever tucking, I'll be able to wear this dress as a skirt too.
cardigan: gap
maxi dress: joe
bangle bracelets: claire's
bow bracelet: jacob
flip flops: walmart

Last January I went through a sandal purging phase in which I threw out every old pair. I thought nothing of it until a week ago when I realized that I had no warm-weather shoes and proceeded to panic. Which led to the hasty purchase of these dull flip flops for $3.50. Problem temporarily solved.

Overall, an ideal world would be one where we could all wear a maxi dress every day. But then I would never get anything accomplished. They make me want to roll around on the floor and have a Harry Potter marathon. Most likely at the same time.
