A Paisley Maxi before Summer is Caput!

This week ending today on September 15th, we have experienced Summer, Fall & Winter here in Michigan. Yes the weather has yo-yoed up and down. Yesterday morning it was 36 degrees. Just two days before it was 95 degrees. Today is in the early 60s. I am telling you it has been craaazaaay. On one of the hot days, I decided to wear this Maxi Dress to run some errands (a.k.a shopping lol) and later on to welcome guests (two of my mom's girlfriends) at the house - they came to see the baby of course, and bring her gifts, too.

I figured I would wear a Summer Maxi Dress once more. I have had this dress for about 4 years now. The Dress is definitely Summery though the Paisley Print and the darker Plum through it, definitely screams Fall! I wish I had this Dress with me in Albania, last Summer when I was pregnant - it would have been perfect. As far as the Jewelry, I piled my Bracelets & Rings. Sometimes more is more. What do you think? Hope you had a great weekend so far. Happy Sunday Night.

And stay tuned this week because I got some great collaborations & some real pretty outfits coming your way. So keep visiting back. I appreciate all of you who read this blog. =)

    1. It is pretty and for the most part it is comfortable. But it is too long even for my 5.7" frame. That is why a little bit of a heel or wedge is needed for this.

  2. Ooooh what a pretty dress! It fits you so well!

    Good for you for wearing a summery maxi dress one more time - pretty soon it's going to be so cold that we'll all be wishing it was summer again!

  3. Such a pretty dress! You could definitely take this dress into fall by pairing it with a blazer or cardigan. Plus, purple is my favorite color so I am loving this.

    Sorry I missed your call yesterday. If you have time, give me a call anytime after 4:00 this week, ok?

  7. such a great dress! You could totally winterize it too! Top it off with a sweater to make it a skirt or a tee, blazer and boots! Thanks for coming by BAD and for your sweet comments as always :)
