Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress
 Target recently had these 3/4 length sleeve floor length maxi dresses for sale, so I bought one. However, when I got home, I realized that the hem basically fell to the ground. No bueno.

I ended up taking the hem and tying it in a knot, but my final goal is to cut off two inches off and hem the dress.


When I went out of town in May for a few of days, I only took this dress, a pair of heels, a pair of sandals, a kimono top, a chambray shirt, a cross-body purse, and a striped shirt. I easily had four outfits, I didn’t have to pack a ton of stuff, and my husband was very happy.

One question that might cross through your mind is, “If you wear the same thing for three days, how do you keep it clean?”

  • I pack travel Febreze. After wearing the dress during the day, I turn it inside out, hang it up, and spray Febreze on the dress.
  • I use a towel and hot water. Spot cleaning always helps! I add some soap and hot water to a towel, and I clean underneath the armpits and around the collar of the dress.
  • I use Tide To Go Stain Eraser. I bought these at Goodwill on a whim two months ago, and man! They are great! I’m prone to spilling things on me, so I started keeping these Tide To Go Stain Erasers in my cosmetic bag. They are easy to use and attack stains like a boss.

    Hmm, I saw this dress at Target and opted to try on the shorter version to see if the fit was nice. The verdict is out, but I might go back and try this one. I made a kimono and bought fabric to make a few more!! Great tips to try regarding packing light.

  • I’m not a big fan of neon, but I really do like how it pops with the black. But I love this dress! I love 3/4 sleeves because you don’t have to worry about your keeping your arms covered. Love how you styled this.

      I hear you; I bought the shoes online, and they looked like a hot pink (much darker). When I got them I was disappointed in the color, but couldn’t return them because they were FINAL SALE. BOOO!
