Maxi dress with that tropical flare.


Hi there friends how are ya this fine day? Me? I am doing alright I suppose. Today, I wanted to post a dress that I got about 2 years ago. It is an H&M maxi dress. And it was just sitting in my closet. And there are a few reasons for that. One reason was it didn’t fit right then. I was still loosing baby weight and was thinking “OK, I will get back into shape.” Truth is I didn’t really start getting into shape until last year, after my son turned one. Then there is the second reason I am not sure how I feel about strapless dresses or things anymore. I am not sure how I feel about the neck line. It is such a pretty dress for the summer. Perfect for walks on the boardwalk at the beach or around the beach in general. And then the last issue, tugging. My little guy tugs on my clothes. So there is that.

HM maxi dress





It is hard not to show leg in this. I love the print. I guess I do like this dress. One thing though I did wear a slipdress under it. As even though it is lined, it does ride up(the lining that is).  What do you think?

    I’m getting the sense that you don’t feel very confident in this dress? I hope that’s not the case because you look so lovely. You have well defined shoulders and arms so this dress helps show them off. I don’t think its showing too much if that’s what concerns you. 🙁

      Thank you Molly, that is very sweet!!!Yeah. I got it after I had my little guy and I got discouraged whenever I wore it. Body issues. But I think I am ok now. 🙂
