I'll be the first to admit that maxi dresses aren't my favorite things to wear. But I've been gravitating towards them more and more after blindly stumbling upon one of my new favorite ways to wear them, under a crochet top!
I generally don't head straight for the maxi dresses section because I find them to be somewhat plain and sometimes hard to wear for those who didn't get lucky in the height lottery.
Last weekend I fell in love with the softness of this long green maxi dress and just couldn't pass it up. I tried a number of belt and jacket combos with the dress, but none seemed quite right for the warmer weather. The jacket weighed down the simple dress and a belt just wasn't enough.
And that's when I saw this detailed crochet top, just a silver of it poking out from behind a floral blouse, but that's all that was needed for it to get noticed.
Crochet tops & maxi dresses, match made in heaven - at least in my opinion.
