March 28th, Maxinitsa

 Good morning! I’m not sure about my spelling of Maxinista, but hopefully you know what I mean.

I have always been a big fan of TJ Maxx, my mom is a huge fan and passed her love down to me. LOL!

The thing is though- you have to be very careful and have a very critical eye when you go.

Don’t just snap up everything in your sight- don’t buy things just because they are inexpensive.

Go knowing what you are looking for- and then if you find it- yeah! If not, try again another day. They are constantly getting new shipments in.

I went looking for a maxi dress. I’ve wanted one for a long time- and was so excited to see this for $39.

The problem is- wearing it all alone, it sort of looks like a nightgown, don’t you think?

On the left I have tried to fix this by adding this cute shirt over my dress (I love the hemline of this top) and then to define my waist I added a cute pink belt. To finish it off, I threw on my favorite Stella and Dot necklace.

Cute, huh?

The nice thing about a maxi dress is that is makes your legs look really long. If you are petit, this might be a great dress for you (but you’ll need to wear heels).

By the way, I’ve slipped down to #11 on Top Mommy Blogs- don’t forget to click on the link on the right to vote. You can vote everyday, it’s just one tiny (and quick) click! Thank you so much!!

It’s Wednesday, so I’ve linked with Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday. Check it out!

I like that the dress and shirt are shades of blue- and then the pop of pink in the belt and necklace really stand out. The sandals may be wishful thinking today...

Dress: TJ Maxx, Shirt: Nordstrom, Belt: Target, Necklace: Stella and Dot, Shoes: Loft

    • Any design! I also bought (from the Gap) a solid blue one that I love. With stripes- make sure they are not too wide- these can be unflattering. Thanks for asking! 🙂

    • Hilarious! My mom has the same gift- she can sniff one out in the strangest places.
      If you feel like a moo moo, try what I did by adding a shirt or cardigan over the top and belting it. I think it helps define the shape a bit.
      Thanks for writing, I am a huge fan of your blog! 🙂

  1. Hmm, this isn’t my favorite look on you. The top doesn’t look quite right. I think a cardi and a long necklace would be a better look to try. I love your blog! Big fan!

    • Thanks for commenting. I’m beginning to second guess this outfit as well… I think you’re right, a cardigan might look cuter. Next week I’ll wear my blue Gap one and pair it with a cardy. Please come back and check it out next week!

  2. You are tiny but where the hemline on the tup meets the stripes on the dress makes your hips look larger than they are. It’s a lot of fabric.

  3. I think this is a cute idea, but I don’t love it. Maybe if the top was a lighter color like white I’d like it better? it seems half summery and half wintery to me. Pair it with a long white belted cardigan and I think you would have a home run!
