An Upgraded Muumuu

Dress & Belt: Maya Boutique in Austin | Sandals: Old Navy | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Bracelets & Rings: F21
I wore this maxi dress last weekend when Ross and I were out celebrating our anniversary. It is hands down my go-to dress. I think I have worn it more than any item in my entire closet.

I can eat and drink as much as I want in it.  It hides the bloating and the design camouflages any food or drink that I may spill on myself. It's a win-win, I tell you. 

Did I mention it's super light weight and doesn't cling to my body? With the scorching temperatures, I need easy breezy and something that doesn't stick to my sweaty skin. You know what I mean?

When it's all said and done, a girl just can't go wrong with a maxi dress. I consider it a fancy and stylish upgrade to the Muumuu dress that Grandma wears. I probably own as many maxi dresses as Grandma owns Muumuus! It's all about being comfortable and cute! Am I right?

Cheers to getting my wear out of this one.

LOVE that maxi Shanna! Such a gorgeous print. My maxi collection is getting a littttle out of hand - probably because of the fact that I can eat and drink anything I want in them like you said :)

So cute! When I was in Hawaii, one of the tour guides was talking about muumuus and I realized that I had been pronouncing the word wrong my whole life! That's about all I learned while in Hawaii. That and that the state fish is the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. Yeah say that 3 times fast! You look adorable by the way!
