What I'm Wearing | Fully MAXI-mized Sunday!

This weekend was a really great one.  So great that I was completely exhausted by the end of the day.  Great weekend indeed, but I'm dreadful of all I have to do come Monday.  It must be all of the sewing and family time that's caught up to me.  Tired as all get out, but well worth it!
This is a maxi dress that I made from Mimi's tutorial.  This quick little project obviously inspired by these RTW styles are great spring/summer wardrobe additions.

Wearing:  maxi dress: DIY (see above); jacket: Simplicity 2250; purse: Urban Outfitters; sandals: Sam Edelman; fedora: Target; bangles:  Amrita Singh.

  2. I just love you and Mimi! I takes you two 1 hour to make this dress and it takes me 1 day. LOL. But I thank you both for the encouragement to keep trying. I love your dress. I'm not brave enough to try stripes just yet. :-)
