Maxi Dress Obsession & Lilly Dress for Sale!

Maxi dresses & skirts...are you yay or nay?

Personally, I am a YAY. I will be completely honest - I never thought I would own one.
I thought I was too short and they would look strange on me. Then, one day at Old Navy, my friend convinced me to try one on and I fell in love! I have two now. They are so comfy and casual. I find myself wearing them to school, work, shopping, etc. I usually pair them with sandals & have a cropped cardigan or denim jacket if it gets chilly.

Here are some favorites from the one and only Pinterest:

absolutely love the pink
so flowy!
ikat anything - i love. plus the coral color is a favorite.
watercolor maxi - adorable for spring or summer
can't go wrong with classic black & white
i'm obsessed with my "jean jacket" as i still call it. Definitely will recreate this.
i love the halter top...has me dreaming of the beach!
black & pink, just like white & pink, is one of my favorite combos. love the sandals, too.
you can rock heels with them, too! the large envelope clutch is an adorable bonus with this outfit.

Seriously, if you haven't tried one on - do it! If you still don't like them, at least you can say you tried. They look 100x better once you put it on rather than hanging on a hanger in the store.

Any other maxi dress lovers out there? I really hope I'm not the only one...

Here is mine from Old Navy that I wore yesterday afternoon:
-sorry about the background mess...STILL unpacking-

Lastly, I'm selling this
Lola dress in Shorely Blue Silver Dollars
Size 6, $55 shipped
GREAT condition
{paypal only, please!}
I didn't wear this dress at all - it may even be NWOT.
I'm usually a 4 and this would probably fit me -- the straps do not come off but they are adjustable -- lined, has two pockets.
Email me if you're interested! If not, it might be headed to Ebay...

Today I'm headed to work for an early St. Patrick's Day with the kids since we have the full day (parent teacher conferences) at E2. I made rainbow jello...very excited to share a picture!

Happy Wednesday!
