Little Black Maxi Dress

Happy Friday!!!  And happy three-day weekend ahead! I have lots of fun things planned this weekend...hopefully this cold will go away ASAP so I can enjoy it all!  Tonight is date night with hubby, and then tomorrow I have a hair appointment to get a cut and color (thank needs it bad!!!).  After that I'm heading to the mall to do a few returns and a bit of shopping!  I'm on the lookout for a few things for the kiddos and perhaps a few things to take with me on our trip to England next month.  You never know what gems you might find while out and about!  Sunday we'll spend as a family and plans yet.  We'll see!!  

What are you up to this weekend??

So I've mentioned before, sometimes I just feel like wearing a dress.  Maxi dresses are perhaps the most socially acceptable and closest thing to pajamas you can wear so of course I love them for their comfort level.  I don't think to wear them that often in the winter because I worry my legs won't stay as warm as they could in jeans but recently I found that to be a myth.  I wore this on a FREEZING cold day and was perfectly fine.  What's fun is that you can wear leggings or knee-high socks underneath to keep warm and no one will be the wiser!

This maxi is one of my all-time favorite items I've picked up from Anthropologie over the years I think.  It was an even sweeter buy because I scored it for just $19.99!!!  Ahhh, love me a good deal!  I loved the simplicity of can mix and match it to death!  It's my little black maxi dress (LBMD).  It's served me well!

When is the last time you pulled out a maxi dress?  Do you avoid them in the winter?  Or altogether?  Or do you have a small collection just waiting to be worn?  Confession time! =)

Hope your three-day weekend is fab!  Enjoy!


  1. I absolutely need to get a black maxi dress. I think maxi dresses are so beautiful, but a black one is SOOO versatile. Love yours!

  2. Totally agree; I love maxi's!! And that is a great deal :)

  3. I'm personally not a maxi fan but you always seem to pull it off and look fabulous.

  4. I like to use a lot of my clothes year round - but I NEVER thought of wearing leggings under a maxi dress - what a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

  5. I looked at my maxi dress yesterday, but put it back in the closet. I made a mental note to wear it this week because jeans are kind of getting boring {but they're so warm and reliable}. :)


  6. I hadn't thought about wearing a maxi with boots for winter. What a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  10. Hope you feel better and enjoy your long weekend! I just my hair 'fixed' last weekend as well.

    The dress looks great with the cardi and the belt!

  11. I'm all about maxi skirts and dresses! I love how you can layer with boots for fall/winter or have a breezy, cool effect with sandals for summer. Love this black maxi on you!
