On the Maxi

Today's edition of Marvelous Mondays brings you the maxi; this could either be a maxi dress like I chose or a skirt. 

Our philosophy: Monday is nobody's favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We're on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing Marvelously!  

Today's look is very basic, the usual maxi type of styling, the dress is new though; I really liked the design and color. I like maxi dresses just because they are so easy, you can instantly look dressed up with very little effort or thought put into it. 


Dress: Faded Glory. Cardigan: Mossimo. Sandals: LEI.  Necklace: gifted from a friend, she bought it in Mexico. Belt: Lane Bryant.

  1. I can't believe how well that works. I would be like "oh no if I can't button the sweater I'll look sloppy" but it COMPLETELY matches the chevrons and looks terrific. This is one of my favorites.

    1. Thanks. At one time I probably wouldn't of either, but I think it completely depends upon what type of look you're trying to get as well as what the garment is made out of.

  2. I'd wear this entire outfit. I just adore maxi dresses and usually wear them several times a week. Plus that green color is amazing on you!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the chevron stripes on the dress, its a nice change from the regular horizontal or vertical stripes. Love how you matched your jewellery in with the turquoise. :)

    1. Thank you! I loved how it was a different type of stripe- I wasn't sure if this was a chevron stripe of not, but I'll take your word for it, lol.
