Saturday style maiden of the forest.

2016-01-02_13.29.32.jpgI feel like I am making up for lost time here on the blog, being sick can do that to you. My home is a mess. Toys everywhere, and things that still need to be put away from Christmas. Nothing is right. But, you get up and get dressed, feel better. I got up today determined to get a blog post done as I impatiently wait for the mail to come and see my #ifchic24 bounty. Yup. And then clean here and there. Today I wanted to get “gleamed up “for me and there is nothing better than that and this  maxi dress I got from Express gives me that super feminine feel without being overly girly. That queen of my domain feel. That and wearing some extensions makes me feel pretty good too, awesome hair day go!

Express dress irresistible me hair

BAM ! This dress is one that I have been wanting to post since I got it! Thanks flu allergies whatever. But here it is! This dress got a lot of compliments when we went shopping Boxing Day.  Even the people who worked at Express were talking to me about how much better it looked on a person than just hanging. It is one of those dresses. Which I knew that when I first saw it in the store before ordering it online. Go up a size, by the way.


The weather is bipolar today and not sure if it wants to rain again or be sunny. I took the chance with my wee lad and we went on our adventure.  This dress is just one you want to have pictures taken of it in he wilderness, or on a path.  Like some maiden of the forest.


This dress is perfect for daytime walks and nighttime dinners out. Change the shoes and off you go! Perfect! This Express maxi has that boho feel as well as a more glam look too. I wore some gladiators with it and it just looks amazing! I bet the lace up flats or heels everyone but me has will look good too!

I love this gown and can not wait to make more outfits with it. Thinking about a vest maybe?

What do you think?

    Lovely dress! I am jealous of the weather! We have snowy time in Prague. I need to wear coat. Do you have GFC? Would you like to follow each other through GFC? I done it throw my blogger 3 months ago but I cannot see your GFC connection on your blog.

    • Stephanie January 6, 2016 at 9:02 PM

      Thanks!!!! It has been so hot it is finally cooling down. I don’t have gfc unfortunately. May have to get one.

  • Gabrielle January 9, 2016 at 10:35 AM

    Your chosen title for this post is so, so accurate Stephanie – ‘Maiden of the Forest’. You look beautiful and you can’t beat a gorgeously-printed maxi dress at any time of the year!

    • Stephanie January 9, 2016 at 5:50 PM

      Thanks Gabrielle!!! 🙂 It has to be hands down my fave dress so far!
