Lookbook: To the Maxi

10/26/2011

So I've been super, super busy recently. I feel like I'm always saying that but this time it's true. I've been pushing myself to the max the past couple of weeks because the hubs and I are moving--again!

I swear we're like nomads. I don't think I've lived in the same place for more than 2 years since high school. We just moved to Arizona earlier this year and now we are taking the pups to the San Francisco Bay area. Let me know if you live there, are awesome and want to hang out! :)

I got this maxi dress from Shopbop with a gift card that I won. Like everyone else, I want to have a go-to maxi of my own. My problem is that I'm very short and I can't wear them with flats, which means that a "go-to" maxi is now a "put on platform heels" maxi. But that's OK because I love the stripes and the ease.

The dogs kept getting in my shot because they're way too used to being in front of a camera. Every time I ask my hubby to take photos for my blog he has to snap at least 100 photos of the dogs too.

By the way, I was featured as the Best Dressed Reader on Glamour.com's style blog today!
