I've got to be honest with you guys. I'm torn about maxi dresses.
They're so perfect in theory — lightweight and flowy, forgiving and stylish. But, as with any trend or clothing choice, I have to be honest and ask myself, will it look good on me? And as someone who is under 5'5", I'm just not sure that the dresses will be the most flattering fit. I fear that these dresses might be too long or too baggy for my petite frame.
But despite my trepidation when it comes to purchasing maxi dresses, I really do love the look. This fuchsia number in particular has caught my eye — and built to stop at the ankles for most normal-sized people, maybe it will be the perfect skim on me? After lusting after it for days and seeing it featured on many of my favorite blogs, I just might have to take the plunge.
I'm interested to know your thoughts — do you go to the max or play it safe with above-the-knee looks?
After watching "Sabrina," a classic black-and-white featuring the whimsical Audrey Hepburn, I've been craving some classic, All-American style. This spring's full skirt trend has been the perfect conduit for this sartorial style. While I love the Tibi version pictured above, it's a tad out of my price range — instead I opted for the more affordable, made in the USA version offered by Bow and Drape, a local Boston company. Pair it will denim, Ray-Bans and gold Sperry Top-Siders and you'll have the quintessential American look.
It may seem like I'm abnormally into lists these days, but I swear, no more than usual!

As an apartment renter myself, I know you often can't be too picky when picking a space — oftentimes kitchen size can take a backburner to the greater priorities of good area, comfortable living room and many other considerations.
If you're like me, and your kitchen is more like a tiny hallway than a Top Chef cooking space, you'll enjoy this article. I'm inspired by these beautiful photos (see below!) and the ideas for those dealing with subpar square footage. One of my favorite things to do in my current apartment's kitchen is to put my food on display — beautiful cloches and ornate bowls can store a lot of food for those dealing with limited cabinet and pantry space!
