Did you know that May 1st is historically referred to as May Day? Though it’s not widely celebrated in the U.S., May Day is a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. It’s origins date back to ancient Rome, where they marked the date with a festival to honor the upcoming summer season. May is an absolutely beautiful time here in So Cal because we have so much incredible foliage in bloom. Not to mention the weather is perfect – not too hot, not too cold, and there’s always a warm breeze across the air. That being said, I’m SO EXCITED to to announce a fun little campaign I’m running for the month of May. It’s the perfect time of year for a beautiful maxi dress and I can’t even tell you how much I love maxis. They’re fluid and elegant, modest yet sexy, and oh so flattering for a variety of body types. I love how a maxi dress makes a statement with just a single article of clothing. As you might imagine, I own quite a few, so I’ve had this idea brewing for a while… I thought it would be fun to dedicate an entire month to just wearing maxis, and I plan to feature all of my favorites on the blog throughout the month, beginning with this pretty little floral dress from Express.
This dress is honestly stunning and I love the feminine details. (Funny fact – my UPS guy legit drove past and honked his horn as we were shooting this look up the road from my house. At least now he might be less confused about all the packages I get!) Since Express started selling petites (sometime last year) I was able to wear it without hemming it first, which is aways a plus. I linked the regular length above, but it’s still available in limited sizes in the petite version as well. The best part is that it’s on clearance now and sooooo inexpensive – so jump on it!!!
P.S. “MONTH OF MAXIS” CONTEST ALERT: Because I’m truly excited to share this special feature with you, I’m also running an Instagram contest to help spread the word. Look out for the details in my next post (later this week) and get ready to win some fun fashion goodies.
