My Style


Do you ever buy an item of clothing and immediately wish you’d purchased it in every single color/pattern that was offered? I find myself thinking that sometimes, but am thankful I maintain self control for the most part. 3 years ago, I spotted an awesome printed chiffon maxi dress at Target. I purchased it and wore it a few times…and quickly became obsessed. It was the perfect dress for the summer: easy to throw on, bright, and breezy. I returned to Target a few weeks later to pick up the dress in another color or pattern, but they were out of my size and it never got restocked. Single tear…

A few years have gone by, and I forgot about the dress. Until last week. I strolled into my local Target to peruse what was new, and my eyes immediately locked on a couple of maxi dresses hanging on a rack. Oh. My. Gosh! The dress! It was pretty much the same maxi dress (with a small change in the bust area) but in new colors and patterns. You better believe I immediately snatched it up.

I have to say, I love the tribal print on this dress even more than the original dress I bought a few years ago: score!

Maxi dress: Xhilaration, purchased at Target $27.99, Bracelets (L to R): Cara accessories, Kristin Hassan, Cara accessories, Clutch: ASOS (similar here), Earrings: kate spade new york, purchased at T.J. Maxx (similar here), Wedges: Coconuts, purchased at Marshalls (similar here)

If you’re looking for the perfect maxi dress to just throw on to run around town: this is it. Plus, you can dress it up or down. I am actually thinking about picking up the dress in the other pattern offered as well (if it’s still in stock this week – I might have a repeat of 3 years ago on my hands). The price is right too: you can’t go wrong!

And if this dress isn’t the right one for you, here are a few others I’ve picked out:

Clockwise (L to R): Desert Coasts Dress, Anthropologie $148, Hive & Honey printed maxi, Piperlime $69, Sabine scarf print maxi, Piperlime $79, Mossimo V-Neck maxi, Target $24.99, Sabine one shoulder maxi, Piperlime $39.99
