The Maxi | Holiday Dress Part 2

Nov 13, 2014

I know for many sequins are too much for the holidays and you want something more subdued that you could invest in and wear year round.  

I have actually never owned a long sleeve maxi dress until this dress and I have to say I am loving it.  No need for a jacket like a Summer maxi this one keeps you covered and warm.  I am a huge fan of the Clover Canyon line and found this dress at Nordstrom, where I do most of my dress shopping these days.  I fell in love with the color and the style.  My dad and Matt both even commented how much they liked it and usually they are mum on my outfits.

 Clover Canyon Maxi | Black Ballet Flats

I love that it can dressed up or dressed down.   I dressed mine down with ballet flats but you could easily wear heels and a sparkly necklace to dress it up.

and because outtakes are funny.  The wind would not corporate with my hair.

another favorite from the Clover Canyon line that is not a maxi but you are still covered up is this long sleeve dress.  I always love the Clover Canyon patterns and colors, such fun dresses.

If you have work parties or something where you need a more conservative dress a long sleeve maxi is a great option.  I also really love this Ella Moss one!  The black makes it so versatile.

I am totally obsessed with this Alice and Olivia Maxi and it is 40% off!  The colors are amazing and  it is stunning.

This green is perfect for the holidays and after.

and for the price this black maxi is a steal- under $80!    The back has a cool cut-out detail too.

Shop some of my favorite maxis below that would be perfect for the Holiday season.  I like to order a few to try since Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns!

    I'm sorry but I really dislike that dress on you. You have a fab figure – tall and willowy and the dress does nothing for you. Sorry.

    I really like this dress on you! It accentuates your tiny waist.
