Outfit: Autumn in July

It was very fall-like when I took these pictures. Nearby there were actually scattered leaves on the ground and it's making me long for cooler temperatures. 

I bought a maxi dress last summer that I still have, but it's way too long for my 4'10" frame. Every time I went into a store and glanced at the maxi dresses available I held it up to my body and groaned because they were about five inches too long.  I just really wanted a simple maxi dress that was close to my body but not too tight that made me look taller and wasn't crazy long. Is that too much to ask for? 

Well, I went to Forever 21 to return a pair of jeans (bad idea, I know) and saw this dress by the door. I was hesitant, but tried it on anyway, and I'm so glad I did. It's maybe an inch or so too long, but if I tuck some of the fabric in at the waist (under my belt) it's perfect. Yay for fashion dreams coming true!

  1. I feel your maxi dress pains ><; Being short is no fun when it comes to long clothing, haha. But this one looks lovely on you! Especially love all of the purple :)

  2. Sigh, it is always so hard to find a maxi when you're this petite! You really lucked out with one! The last time I was in F21 and tried on what I thought was a maxi dress...nope, turns out it was a skirt! But on me, it actually fit as a dress. Petite problems :)

  12. I do not envy you being 4'10" - one of my best friends is your height and she's the only person who makes me feel tall; but our shopping trips are always such a frustrating excursion because everything is so long for both of us, especially her! I'm impressed you found a maxi that's almost the right length - but it looks amazing on you, especially the colour!
