Return of the maxi

I wanted to be sure to wear my maxi dress in all of its simplistic glory before summer was over.
Maxi dress - Gap Outlet, Pink purse - Present from Sister, Wedges - Me Too
First I had to get this hemmed up. The first time I wore this dress, I wore my chambray shirt over it, which held it up enough to not drag on the ground. Without it, the dress seriously drags, and there's nothing I hate more than a frayed, dirty dress (or pants).
Not it's the perfect length!
I would very seriously benefit from hemming my own stuff, but I figure time is money, my friends, and when I have five things to get fixed, I would rather drop it off, stop thinking about it, and by the end of the week, pick it up again, only to feel like I have all new clothes (whee!).
All other hemmed items are in anticipation of fall weather!
These pictures were taken at the end of the day, which is why my hair is a bit frizzy, but check out those no-heat curls!


  1. I still get all my stuff hemmed by mom. Got the purse in Ireland!

  2. Mom makes me nervous because she all the time frets that she's going to mess it up somehow! Thanks for the purse--it's the perfect summertime bag!
