For almost a year now, I’ve been trying to only shop for clothes once a month. I have not always been successful (remembering the first few weeks of COVID where the entire world went on sale!), but since the Summer started I have really been having conversations with myself that it is time to get more responsible financially, sustainably and socially: fashion impacts it all!
So instead of just shopping for what was “Cute” this month, I really made an effort throughout the past few weeks to take note of what I wish I had in my closet to wear that I didn’t. The answer: Maxi Dresses.
I am officially working from home indefinitely, and I need more clothes that are incredibly comfortable, appropriate for daily video conferences, and can be wearable from my freezing cold basement office to the 80-90 degree weather outside. Maxi dresses check off all of those boxes!
Below are the dresses (and jumpsuit) I bought, with a bonus headband! P.S all of this is from aerie and they are doing up to 60% off!
Chambray Maxi Dress
Sizing: I sized up 1.
I’m a pear body shape and am learning that shift dresses tend to cling to my hips since there is no structure. This dress fits fab around my hips, but I will need to self-tailor the straps as they are not adjustable.
Favorite Details: The dual straps and slit
This is Mark’s favorite of the three outfits I bought! I know the wrap dress is one of the few styles that is flattering on every body type, but for some reason it usually doesn’t entice me. I’m glad I tried something new, because I love!
Favorite Detail: The ruffle along the hem
Little Black Jump Suit
By far my FAVORITE of all three pieces. The material is great quality. Despite being a little thicker, it is also incredibly flowy which gives you a breeze on a hot day. I already know this is going to be making a second appearance on my July Favorite Finds post at the end of the month.
