If you know me well (or follow me on Instagram) you know that I live in a cotton maxi dress and a hat on the weekends. It is truly my weekend uniform in the spring/summer. I am never one to spend tons of money on my maxis because they go through long weekend days filled with brunches, running errands and traveling. My typical go-to for my maxis is Target. I never have to spend more then $30 on one and it always makes me feel more at ease knowing that when if I spill something on it, or tear a hole in the bottom, I am not as worried about ruining a beloved piece.

I already stocked up for the warm weather and this one (above) is by far my favorite. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and the length is perfection. As a shorter gal I love when a maxi actually falls at the right length.

Clearly I can go on and on about my love for cotton maxis. So I will spare you and stop here. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Okay, you have convinced me I need to add (at least) one piece like this to my closet! Also loving you in that hat!! :)

I too am a shorter gal and always thought I couldn’t pull off a maxi – that I would end up looking shorter as a result. But I think this summer is the summer to test it out.

We don’t have target here yet until next year so I will have to watch for something similar here. I have already spotted a panama hat similar at Gap and a navy maxi at Joe Fresh…

I am 5’3… if I can do it, you can do it! Also, the link to the dress is on Target’s website. Might be worth seeing if they ship. So cheap and the quality is not bad!

Good luck!

Unfortunately Target still doesn’t shop outside the US. When they come to Canada next year that might change but who knows.

We have Joe Fresh though and they are similarly priced and quality to Target so I am going to see how theirs work.

Thanks for the inspiration!

That’s such a gorgeous maxi dress! I’m insanely petite so I don’t usually wear maxis with bright patterns, especially stripes, but it looks so good on you! I think I need to get over the shock of actually finding maxi shapes that look good on me in the first place, haha.
Love your hat!

I am 5’3 so it is definitely possible. That maxi is a medium (I need the room in the chest area and I like my maxis loose) but I could have done a small as well.

Good luck!
