If you are a petite girl like me, I’m pretty sure you have trouble finding maxi dresses that fit properly. I am only 5’1″ and 95-ish lbs and I’m usually swimming in every maxi dress I find. Sometimes I find one that does actually fit in the bodice but they still drag on the floor. The other day I was in Target (surprise, surprise) and I found the most perfect petite-friendly floral maxi dress ever!
In most items at Target I take an XS so I grabbed XS in this dress and to my surprise it was perfect! The bodice fit TTS but the length is just above the floor which means it will work with heels or flats. More importantly that means I won’t trip over a super long dress and fall on my face! Ha!
But seriously though……why are my legs so dang white? I never even notice until I see them in photos. I usually apply self tanner but when I don’t ….my legs are pretty much transparent. This is because I am almost always in jeans even during the summer since I work in an office Monday through Friday. The only time my legs see the light of day is sadly on the weekend.
Words of Wisdom & Inspiration
“After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.”
I also love all of the details in this dress. The mustard color is huge right now. This summer I think it has been THE most popular color in the world of fashion. The floral pattern on this dress is somewhat of a magenta color and is also gorgeous. There is an open slit in the front of the dress as well. One reviewer said the slit was too high but again I am only 5’1″ and it comes to about mid-thigh so it works perfectly for me. The top of the dress has a tie-up front which I love because it gives just the perfect amount of detailing that you don’t even need to wear a necklace. I also added a waist-belt I recently purchased from express to dress it up a little more.
OUTFIT DETAILS & SIZING:
For reference, I’m 5’1″ & under 100 lbs. I normally wear the following sizes: Shoes (6), Tops (XS), Jeans (24/00)
Earlier I mentioned this maxi dress would work with heels or flats. Here I wore it with one of my favorite pairs of sandals right now. I have literally been wearing these little gladiator slide sandals with everything. They comfy and cute and pretty durable considering I wear them constantly. This floral maxi dress can esaily transition to a night out by just changing your shoes to a cute pair of heels! Hopefully this dress is one that my fellow petite girlies love as much as I do! BTW this dress is is under $30 and you can purchase online and pick up in store which I LOVE!
