An Outfit for a Day of Shopping
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?
