SLIDER

miss in a maxi

scarf + cardigan + bag: urban outfitters, dress: lush (@ nordstrom bp), booties: h&m, sunglasses: ray-ban aviators

You guysssss, it finally hit 76 today in LA! I(and I think it's safe to say all the other Angelenos) am welcoming the warmer weather with wide open arms. What's more glorious than having a beautifully sunny, warm day in the dead of winter. 

As someone who towers at the height of 61 inches, I have many reservations in what I wear in fear that I will look like a stumpy, pudgy... gremlin. But maxis don't fall under that category! I've heard plenty of people voice their complaints along the lines of "I wish I could wear maxis :(." Well you can!! It's true, a lot of maxis are too long for us shorter folk, but there are also a vast sea of maxi dresses with elasticized waists. I personally prefer these so that you can hold up some of the cloth at the torso area, and it doesn't make you look shapeless. Or, you can always add your own belt. Another solution to the length issue is tying a knot at the bottom of the dress/ skirt, like I did in this outfit.  In order to add to the illusion of elongation, you can add some long layers. The cardigan, scarf, and even the long strap of my bag all follow this effect. Last but not least, a heel is an obvious way to make yourself feel taller!  P.S if you have reservations in fear of being judged or deterring from your usual style in wearing a maxis/ really anything.. whatever! YOLO! DO YOU :) :)

 Idk what I was doing..

 the knot!!



p.s this was my first post published on teen vogue, booyah!

  15. I really like the way you knotted your skirt it makes it so much more interesting and gives the dress a bit more shape :) I just bought a maxi dress in the sale and if it's making me look a bit frumpy I might just do this (I'm a bit to tall and have the opposite problem with maxi skirts they're always awkward ankle-swingers!
