In the summer, there is probably nothing comfier than a light-weight maxi dress; it feels like leaving the house in a nightgown. If you are a gal like me (or heck, even a guy) who likes wearing dresses the majority of the time, it’s perfect for those warm, yet windy days so no undie flashes occur, or for times sat in the park, so again, we have no concern about our underthings. This particular vintage number caught my eye for the pattern and colours, and while it read size large on the tag, I felt as though that was not the true sizing, so I gave it a whirl regardless and it fit just the way I wanted; a little form fitting, but still quite loose and airy. I lovingly call this dress my muumuu, which I supposed is not a traditional muumuu at all, but The Simpsons sort of made muumuus a joke for me, so anything long and loose immediately becomes a muumuu in my eyes (how many times can I say muumuu in one sentence?!) The other reason I’m particularly fond of this guy – if I’m being totally candid and honest here – is I’ve been feeling a little self-conscious about my body lately, which is really and truly a new feeling for me (maybe I’ll write a more lengthy post about that at some point), so this dress is the type that feels nice to wear on days when your silly thoughts and negative self-image are getting the best of you.
