Prior to my girls trip to Miami (recap here), I wouldn’t have been caught dead willingly wearing a maxi dress. I like them on other people, but I always get too hot for comfort in the Florida climate and feel insecure about my shortness due to a lack of added height (explained below). Seeing my gorgeous friend Christel rock a similar watercolor maxi dress, I fell in love… and then fate aligned, and I found this BB Dakota masterpiece. I’m hooked. My only complaint is that when flat-footed at 5’7″, the dress barely touches the floor, so there’s no way I could ever wear heels with it.
I purchased it on Wednesday and immediately wore this dress to the Wish Upon a Star fashion show, benefiting Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, at Neiman Marcus Last Call on Thursday evening. Full outfit details at the bottom of this post.
