To the Maxi

I was unable to do an outfit post over the weekend because of pink eye.  So, I found some pics taken a few weeks ago before my eye troubles.  The smaller shadow you see in this picture is my favorite photographer, my 10 year old son.  He requested to be paid $1 per photo shoot.  He works cheap right?  I am really considering sending him to a photography class.  Oh, he would hate that. 

sweater:  Banana Republic
belt:  Target
dress: worn as a skirt-Marshalls
boots:  Kenneth Cole
I love, love, love this Maxi dress.  It is so versatile and comfortable.  I can't think of any item in my closet that gets as much wear as the Maxi.  I am going to remix this dress and post it real soon.  I can see it with a sweatshirt, a blazer, maybe a cardigan or a boyfriend sweater.  Oh, I know a tunic, no a sheer blouse.....  Lots of ideas.

Trying a new pose.  I look angry, not a good look.

Still didn't nail the pose.  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

Hi, I'm new to your blog and I love your style! I've always been afraid of buying a maxi dress (I'm not sure I can pull off the long length!) but I've been dying to pair it with a loose lace top I have. Then I saw your outfit and I am officially convinced that I need one (: It's so versatile! And your outfit is gorgeous!!

Those boots are really great, I love them!

Ack, sorry about the pink eye! I went to a trade show once and our entire staff seemingly had pink eye fever - one of my co-workers got it initially, then gave it to me somehow, I gave it another person and before you know it, we're all working the show with our sunglasses on indoors!
