How To Wear: Maxis


Happy Tuesday my loves.

I hope everyone had a super weekend. Mine was spent doing lots of couponing in attempt to build up a stockpile of things so that I will be better prepared for the arrival of my little one. I also teamed up with another sponsor and spent some time with my girlfriends at a local event that I will share with you tomorrow so stay tuned.

Today though, I would love to share with you a trend that has become one of my best friends since my baby bump is finally beginning to grow. Maxis are the epitome of the phrase 'effortlessy chic'. They are super comfy, easy to style, and totally feminine.

I love that you can wear them casually with a great pair of flat sandals and chambray, you can go for a sexy look and pair a skin tight midi maxi with bright colors, or you can prepare your maxi for the fall by layering a light moto jacket over some plaid for more of a trendy look.

French Connection maxi dress / Long sleeve shirt / Object Collectors Item zip jacket, $66 / Ruched maxi skirt, $47/ Alice + Olivia cork wedge heel sandals, $165 / ASOS leather shoes / Zara mustard yellow pumps / ALDO flower print purse / Chunky necklace / Old Navy Girls Polka Dot Chambray Shirts - Dots

 As I mentioned before, maxis-or anything with elastic, stretch, and/or an expandable waistband-have become like my second home since my lil Peanut has been growing bigger in size lately. I live and die by the stretch!!!


I love that I was able to throw a belted chambray top over this striped maxi for a cool, yet very casual look.


The belted top really highlighted my growing, 23 week belly too. And being that he is so active in here and obviously getting bigger by the second, I'm all about comfort and functionality these days.


I found this dress last year on the clearance rack at TJ Maxx and fell instantly in love with it. 


I was beginning to think that I would never find the perfect maxi...


You know, the one that fits all your curves just perfectly and whose length is just long enough to not graze the ground as you walk, yet still show off your cute shoes.

Yep...this is the one!!! 

A great $7 investment.


I'm interested to know what features you look for when searching for the 'perfect maxi'...

Is it design, shape, pattern, etc.?

I can't wait to hear from you. 

Thanks for reading.
XOXOXOXO


PS...Since I purchased this dress from the tried and true TJ Maxx, I felt it would only be right for me to enter their #Maxxinista contest for a chance to win a gift card to shop with. Please go here to vote for my look.

  7. Material quality and shape. I have barely any hips so I have to make sure I don't look too top heavy (especially with my 32DDD's)

    1. Yeah, I don't have much in the way of hips either so I have to be careful about dresses that are too fitted!!
