Ombre Maxi


Happy Monday! The weather here was like winter this weekend. It was cold, windy, raining, and never really above 50 degrees! Hoping it warms up again this weekend. Bracing myself for a summer full of weddings to attend (4 to be exact). I missed quite a few while in Korea, so I am excited to see some people I have not seen in a while. Still searching for some good dresses (preferably cheaper) and preparing myself for quite a bit of US travels.

Saw this maxi, tried it on, and fell in love. It may have been that it is one of the few maxis that doesn’t go 5 inches below my feet, or the colors in it! I loved the ombre color on it and the simplicity of it. I added some simple wedges and a bag. With prom season happening now, I didn’t want to dress it up too much and get mistaken for someone going to prom! Enjoy your Monday!

    This dress is simply stunning, and perfect for a summer wedding! Be careful though, because you may look better than the bride in this dress! 🙂

    This is the second ombre clothes that I saw on fashion blog with the first being a t-shirt. It’s definitely a gorgeous dress and the ombre gives it a refreshing twist. You look gorgeous, Denise but you always do. And yay to weddings! Can you believe back in the days I hate attending weddings? Especially those OTT ones. I personally feel a wedding should be a celebration of love instead of who has a bigger budget unfortunately these days too many people are pressured to have huge weddings to the point they have to take loans for it. It’s foolish imo.

    I love a maxi dress. You can put it on and look instantly glam. Of course you always look glam, but when you put on a maxi girl, you look even more glam. Loving this look.

    Denise! Love this ombre dress on you! So cute 🙂 I was in Chicago this time last year, and it was also kind of freezing! I always remember hearing that Chicago gets super hot in the summer! So come on weather, bring the heat 🙂

    The dress is so pretty! It’s perfect for an outdoor wedding or even a bridal shower. Or, where I’ll be wearing it to, brunch hahaha.

    I can’t believe you have 4 weddings to attend. I’m a little surprised I have none but it’s helpful on the bank account!

    I’m heading to a wedding this weekend! I like the ruffle & ombre details of this dress. Looks great on you!

    This dress is stunning on you!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
