"But teach me something wonderful, crown my head, crown my head with your lilting effects"-Of Montreal

I'm afraid my maxi dress/skirt collection has taken over my closet. It's like all that fabric has a gravitational pull and I can't help but buy up every ankle-grazing frock in sight. The best part about these extended lengths is that they look effortlessly chic all while being immensely comfy. Plus, the possibilities for accessorizing maxis are endless-I especially love the look paired with cropped jackets and chunky jumpers. 

I wore this yesterday while running errands, which was perfect because it offered the right amount of warmth and movement for the day's obligations. My boyfriend and I drove by this loud mural painted on the side of an exotic pet store and knew we had to take pictures with all the wild colors. Sadly, I didn't have time to gawk at the creatures within, but one of these days I'll work up the courage to go back and hold some reptilian something...just as long as I don't see anything with eight legs!

Dress: F21
