a little dream come true

Hello there!

This has been a tough week, a very tough week. Unfortunately, I can't explain all the details at the moment, but hopefully soon I'll be able to share some of what's weighing heavy on my heart.

For now, I'm happy to just share this little dream come true:

I've been searching for months to find a floor-length maxi dress, people! I know that by name alone I should assume they already graze the floor, but let's be honest here: I'm 5'10" and most only graze the tops of my ankles. When I saw this number hanging in the back of Forever 21 this week, its hem practically a puddle on the floor, I was in maxi dress heaven. 

And don't you just love this mustache necklace? It's the perfect amount of Gatsby quirkiness and style.

I'm pretty happy with it. But it is kind of see-through...so anyone know where I can find a floor-length slip?

Dress: Forever 21
Denim Shirt: Goodwill
Sandals: Target
Watch: Target (a gift from a friend)
Beaded Bracelet: A gift during my time in Kenya last year

I haven't even tried searching for maxi dresses as I'm 6'0 and just know I'd have issues. This one is adorable though! You look fab! I hope everything turns around for you soon. Perhaps this is a good luck maxi dress? :)

ThanksKaley! Seriously, though, try Forever 21. I'm holding the dress up so you can actually see my shoes, but it more than grazes the ground when I let go. You're only two inches taller than me; I bet it would work for you, too! :)
