This brick maxi dress for summer…



Dress: Forever 21 (wearing size XS) // Shoes: Nordstrom (wearing size 8) // Bag: Goodnight Macaroon // Necklaces: Forever 21

Signs of a good purchase: I’ve barely received the shipment of this dress yesterday morning that I was already wearing it in the afternoon (and am wearing it again today). There is something about a flowy, light summer maxi dress that gets me going, and this one is no exception. The smocking waistline is giving me life! Can we talk about hourglass figure?

I’ve always been afraid of this rusty brick color, I always thought it would make me look like a landscape. You know: brown hair / green eyes / brick clothes, … doesn’t that sound like I am describing a house and garden? Clearly that’s a no. 

Worth mentioning: the simple fact that the dress doesn’t wrinkle easily (if you’ve ever ordered from Forever 21 before you know that the items come in a complete mess of plastic and paper wraps).
