Hahahahaha, just kidding. I'm still here. But I'm really gonna go soon because Chase took me out to dinner (sushi) and now we're going to watch a movie (netflix) so essentially it's a date...and I'm cheating on him with the internet. He'll never find out. He never reads this anyway.

K, just a quick snippet about my outfit.... I had picked out two outfits last night. They were both okay and I was iffy on them which is why I had two. But then I woke up and felt bloated...probably from the brownie yesterday...and skinny jeans were the last thing on my mind...since I was bloated. So I decided to wear a maxi dress. I need to stock up on these! So super duper comfortable.

Also, I stole this necklace from my cousin. Cousin, if you're reading this, I'm sorry but not really because your mom gave it to me. I still love you. I'll see you some holiday soon. Love, me.

I'm wearing a cardigan from some Korean clothes boutique ($14), Forever 21 maxi dress ($5 - buy similar!), secondhand gold beaded necklace (took it from my cousin), Old Navy belt ($10 - buy it!), and Forever 21 boots ($16 - buy similar!) with a JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).

  1. Elaine, super hot dress. I'm now checking them out. Because I want to be you when I grow up.

    P.S. you continually amaze me. You post more than anyone I know and you work. Full-time. Again, I want to be like you when I grow up. That's my goal...soon. I want to try to post more often than I do. I started a cooking blog and I'm awful at posting there too. But you inspire me. Gonna try harder! (www.chereadrienne.wordpress.com if you're interested). I also started a project 365, but I havne't posted any of those pictures yet because I can't decide if it deserves its own blog or if I should add it to my professional site. Thinking of keeping them separate. hmm.

    I miss our dates. Come back to Utah!!

  5. Everytime I see you wear this maxi dress, it makes me more inclined to try one out myself! I love how many ways you've worn this. I keep thinking they are only one-dimensional. Silly me.

    And the boots give the outfit a completely different feel too. Love it.

  7. That maxi dress looks great on you! Very chic! And your necklace is adorable. I can see why you stole it. ;) Haha! I have a few things that I've borrowed from my sister-in-law as well...

  9. I love maxi dresses so much. I wore one to a rodeo today. It was so much cooler than the denim, plaid and boots everyone else was wearing in the 80 degree heat. Suckas!

    Loving the military-esque tones in this outfit! That necklace is such a great steal Elaine! It'll look so good over a white t-shirt too! I agree--you need to get more maxi dresses since you wear them so well!

  12. You look great in a maxi dress! I've always been afraid to try them because I feel like I'll look even shorter than I already am (5") .... But this outfit is sort of changing my mind, haha. x)

  15. Yeah, it does.. Only because I hate switching purses!

  16. Elaine- this look is bomb. Your hair's getting long! It looks pretty glamorous. Seeing as I am perma-bloated for the next half a year, I need to get myself a whole bunch of those dresses.

  32. Ahh. I love how you did this! I've been thinking for practically forever that I want a maxi dress, cause they just look sooo comfortable and cute. But, I'm always frightened I'm waaay too short and will just look like a short stout lump.

  34. speaking of maxi dresses...Charlotte Russe is having a happy hour today and they are $15. I got a text about it yesterday.

  38. This outfit is really style and just looks super comfortable. I mean I believe your post about the fact it is comfortable, but it looks that way as well. I need to try boots with a maxi dress. I'm leery of trying it myself, but everyone in my blogger seems to be able to pull it off amazingly!

    ReplyDelete

  46. I see your g-lines! See? I'm all up on mormon-lingo. Does that make me cool enough to join the mormon blogger directory???

    Anyway, love this outfit, I'm still too scared to wear maxi skirts, but you do it beautifully.

    And my husband is ALWAYS waiting for me to finish blogging so we can watch some netflix stuff.

  54. You look so casual and stylish in that outfit, and what a great way to wear a maxi dress! I'm totally stealing this outfit idea! Have a great weekend:)

  55. I love how maxi dresses look on others, but I'm so afraid of wearing one cause I'm really short! Any tips Elaine? :) Thanks x

    ReplyDelete
  56. Your bag seems to go with everything from your closet..love it! And I agree with you! Maxi dresses are just so comfy, and you can style them up or down. Amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Now I'm convinced I should try a maxi skirt. I'm a shorty, and I always feel like I can't wear a maxi skirt. Yours looks awesome though. While I'm not upon all the Mormon lingo was Kimmie talking about the garments you wear to temple by g-lines? A friend of mine in high school was Mormon.
