As the title of the post suggests, I cannot get over my obsession with wearing maxi dresses this Summer!  It’s an easy one piece outfit, I don’t have to shave and I don’t have to worry about too terribly much about showing off the weight I’ve gained on my lower body.  I actually don’t own a lot of long sleeve maxi dresses, this may be one of my first actually, and I’m kind of in love.  I recently discovered White Plum and will be back to shop for more there.  They’ve got a variety of stylish clothing for a great price (and often run specials too)!

And I finally caved and got the infamous Madewell Transport Tote.  I’ve seen is it worn numerous times on bloggers like Kendi Everyday and my friend Pretty, Polished, Perfect.  I have to say, it really does match with A LOT of different outfits with it’s neutral color and you can literally just throw everything in there, including my big camera (now that’s a bonus)!  I really mulled over the purchase for like ever… but am so happy I made the leap!

Shoes: Zara
Bag: Madewell
Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Gold Cuff Bracelet: Lemon Stripes
Rings: LUMO Jewelry, Oh Hello Friend

I wore this outfit for my last KC Blogger Meetup for awhile. :(  I really am so happy to have expanded my little blogging community here and am so sad to be leaving them.  I know that Utah has tons of bloggers too and I hope that I can find a group there as close as I am with some of the girls I’ve bonded with here.  Here’s a few pictures from the event!

The event was held at the Amigoni Urban Winery, it was my first time at this event space and it was just beautiful.  I love all of the decor and lighting in this space, it was just a little sad that I couldn’t taste the wine!  The food was provided by Urban Table and it was delish!  There were a ton of giveaways from local brands (too bad I didn’t win one though, but congrats to all that did), a fun little photobooth, and a scavenger hunt to get to know the other bloggers as well.  I really had an amazing time catching up with my blogging buddies and it was really sad to say “see ya later”!  But the wonderful thing about the internets is that I can still follow their lives through their blogs and social channels when I move.  I will miss you, my KC Blogger Meetup friends!!

    I adore this dress on you! It is unique to find a maxi with sleeves. I always love having sleeves. Love the cuff you paired it with. Sounds like a fun event!

    This maxi dress is so pretty on you. Now I have to go and check out this tote. I bought one from J Crew last year and it’s too stiff and the straps are too short for me to carry as a shoulder bag so I need to find another one.

    Hi there are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
