Striped Maxi


Today was such a perfect day. It is my only day off this week, but that is ok with me because it was really the best day we've had in a while. Ollie and I went shopping downtown, then ate some sushi and watched the new Men in Black in 3D. It was actually really good! After the movie, we went down to the water to catch the last bit of sun and take some photos. I love that days are lasting so much longer now. You can really fit so much more into one day!

This outfit is my absolute best shopping outfit. The only way it would be better is if it was warm enough to not have a jacket and I was wearing flip flops. The dress is so easy to pull on and off in the change room and you don't need to worry about belts or button or zippers, or anything else that gets in the way and takes positioning. The dress is so comfy too -- it was pretty cold in the theater, but it was like I was wearing a blanket over my legs, so it kept me just warm enough :)

I hope you have an amazing end to your weekend and a really great start to your week! xoxo

















I was wearing:

Color Thread Maxi Dress from XO Bella (similar here)
Zara Denim Jacket (similar here)
Gladiator Sandals (similar here)
H&M Sunglasses (love these ones)
Tiffany Necklace
Tarryl M and XO Bella Bracelets
