A Different Kind of Maxi Dress + I'm Being Featured Today!

 
Hi everyone!
So I am sure you are all well aware that Blogger screwed up royally yesterday and was offline for .. 16 hours or something ridiculous. Well my post (Geek Chic) from yesterday has been removed and still not replaced. I have contacted Blogger so hopefully they will have it back up soon. Sorry for any inconvenience : )
As I mentioned in yesterday's post - I am being featured over at Smarter Fashion and Beauty! Please stop over and check it out. Thanks so much to Belinda at Smarter Fashion and Beauty for writing such a lovely feature.
 I really appreciate your comments guys - if you commented yesterday and I didn't respond I will try to do so once Blogger gets itself back together. You can also connect with me on Twitter, Facebook or Bloglovin - I promise I am getting better at Tweeting!
On another note - can you believe it is already the weekend? I know I can't. The weather is cooperating today and the sun is out and shining.
Today's outfit is a hippie/boho style look. A different take on the Maxi dress trend for sure! I have had this vintage dress for something like 12 years now and it still (in my opinion) looks great. Are you embracing the Maxi look for this summer? Tell me about your looks!

More photos after the Jump.





















Dress - Vintage (no label)
Vest - GENTLE FAWN
Bag - Vintage (no label)
Shoes - FAMOLARE (Vintage)

  2. Das sind sehr schöne Fotos :-) Dir steht dieser Style sehr gut !
    Ein Beitrag ist von mir auch verschwunden. Ein Teil davon war zum Glück noch unter Entwurf abgespeichert. Dein Kommentar ist leider auch verschwunden. Nicht, dass Du nachher denkst, ich hätte ihn gelöscht.
    Schönes Wochenende :-)

  4. I am so enjoying your fashion blog! I really love your ensemble today, and your hair - so pretty.
    Now that baby #4 is almost three months old I can dive back into my vintage clothes (although I have a couple of vintage maternity items too) and spice up my wardrobe a little bit. I don't know if you like ethnic pieces or not, but if you do, here is one of my favourite places to shop: http://www.designandasia.com/en/index.php
