in defense of the maxi dress

I spend a lot of time on twitter. A LOT of time on twitter. It’s like my life-line to the outside world. People on twitter are very opinionated about a wide range of topics, did you know? It’s not shocking, people in general are opinionated and it’s an easy forum to dump your thoughts on the masses at large, I do it too. (Hello all my thoughts on the HORRIBLE HOUSEWIVES THIS SEASON) Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of hate for the maxi dress rolling around and well, I just can’t get on board. I don’t care if you think they are essentially empire-waist mumus. I don’t care if you think they make everyone look pregnant. I DON’T CARE because this shit

IS COMFORTABLE. I was able to sit outside for HOURS without melting into a little puddle of Jess. I felt marginally stylish even.

I did shave my legs still (leg hair is HOT) so that isn’t my reason for wearing them it’s more that I can’t go outside without instantly getting a sunburn and it’s already NINETY FUCKING DEGREES here, so my jeans need to be retired ASAP but since the prednisone nightmare, I am so not even about to bust out shorts and sunscreen. Also, I came home and flopped directly into my bed and it was HEAVEN.

I bought two of the exact same maxi (one pink and one teal) and wore them in the exact same way over the weekend.

Cardi, dress, sandals, huge dangly earrings, pony-tail, sunglasses. I felt cute, put together and COMFORTABLE.

Plus I even tried the maxi with a blouse and belt over it and it looked good, I’ll have to photo that later. I like things that are versatile. I think this is going to be the summer of the dress (also the summer of me DYING OF HEAT OMG) so long or short, dresses are going to be on my person.
