Summer Travels – A Maxi Dress

Barcelona offers an abundance of shopping it would take an entire week to crack the surface. Yet in between all the sightseeing, eating and drinking we squeezed in some time for shopping, well more like window-shopping. This day we strolled around the city’s major shopping areas and took note of the upcoming fall trends and gorgeous pieces that were coming out this September.

For store hopping and window gawking I wore a maxi! I don’t wear many maxi dresses or skirts; mainly because I’m on the shorter side thus at times it’s a little difficult for me to wear. But not this time! This maxi takes the cake; it was a perfect dress to where in Barcelona and for summer. The color is impeccable, the lace applique is divine and the fact that it’s strapless makes me forget about getting a bad tan from walking around in the sun all day.

When you want to look immediately taller while being comfortable, wear wedges. You can’t tell from the photos but I’m wearing tan wedges that made the length of the dress fit my frame. I was comfortable all day and didn’t have to change into flats.

To finish the look I added an appropriate accessory, a cross body laser-cut bag. The color and details of the purse play well with the crochet details of the dress, thus making it a perfect compliment to my overall outfit.

I would love to know what you think! Do you often wear maxis?

Stay Stylish,
-V

    Wow, that dress is gorgeous! I love it. The white knit/crochet/emroidery details are just great.

    And I’m impressed that you could wear wedges all day without it killing your feet. I’ll be doing a blog post on this soon, but I pretty much have to just wear sneakers when I’m on vacation so my feet don’t die. What kind of wedges were they?

      Thank you joules – I fell in love with this dress, the details in it are perfect. Aside from sneakers and flats wedges are my next go to option when it comes to long days. In this outfit I was wearing a pair of Lucky brand wedges -they were very sturdy.

    Haha, yeah, I think wedges are every girl’s secret to height without pain. I love this outfit! Especially the laser-cut bag. But I can only imagine it made trying on clothes somewhat a pain 😛
