Truth: I absolutely loooove this casual maxi dress. It’s lightweight and perfect for everyday wear. The silhouette is super simple and the length easily allows for flats, which means it’s a frequent “go to” on my off days. Plus the price can’t be beat – it was a lucky Target find courtesy of Who What Wear. Honestly, I have to run past the WWW section at Target whenever I go shop for diapers and baby food. Otherwise I’d be buying stuff every time because the clothes are so cute and affordable. This dress is an older purchase, but I linked up some current Who What Wear finds below!
I find the designer collabs for Target interesting. For each collaboration there tends to be a lot of hype, then items sell out very quickly once they hit the shelves. Yet I have almost no luck. I don’t know if it’s because I’m petite, but I pretty much always find the sizing is off. When it comes to the Victoria Beckham collection, I checked out all the photos in advance and narrowed down the items I liked, but I didn’t make it into the store until several days after launch, so there was almost nothing left. This dress was one of the only items in my size and I’m NOT usually a fan of shift dresses. The silhouette is bad for my body type. Sure enough the XS was a bit loose and boxy, though in this case it worked in my favor, as it didn’t cling awkwardly to my curves the way shift dresses do. For one thing I love bright colors, and in the case of this dress I like the scalloped detail, so I bought it – which is rare for any Target collab.
I know that Uggs are controversial. Some “fashion people” really don’t like them. They’re either too clunky, or too casual, or simply too mainstream. I do not fall into that category. I dig them because as far as I’m concerned they’re super practical when winter comes round. I’m not a fan of running around in heels when it’s cold and rainy outside. Though you’d never catch me in sneakers or ballet flats, boots are my one exception to the no flats rule. I love wearing them with leggings and a chunky sweater, but I’ll also rock my Uggs with a dress.
