maxi dress worn as skirt Forever 21
Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians! It's beautiful here in Ottawa, hot and sunny, the perfect kind of day to spend outdoors. We went for a nice walk this morning and plan on spending the afternoon having a picnic at the park. Tavi is loving all the sun and after a long, dreary winter we can't get enough of it!
The print of this black and white maxi dress caught my eye, but I was weary of it's tiny bandeau style top. I don't know what it is about this style of dress but it doesn't matter how many sizes you go up, the top portion remains minuscule. The pattern reminded me of one of my old favourites which gets a lot of wear so I wasn't deterred by this dresses' tiny top. I really like the look of high-waisted things and the gathering on the bandeau top works perfectly to create an empire waist of sorts. So as a skirt or as a pretty beach cover-up this dress was a real find and the best part is it was less than $20!
