Maxed Out



I've been training for my second half marathon (The Disneyland Half Marathon! whee!) so I follow a pretty strict training regimen.  This Saturday I was slotted to run a 10K simulating race pace.  Needless to say, I was exhausted and sore afterwards.  The last thing I wanted to do was throw on some tight skinny jeans or heels.  I opted for a nice comfy maxi dress instead.

For all those petite gals out there, I highly recommend this dress from Forever21!  It's SO hard to find a maxi dress that doesn't drag.  While this isn't a total maxi dress that covers your entire feet, it certainly is as comfy as one.  I think I'm going to order these in the other colors as well.  At only $10.80 it's a steal! I will mention though that this dress is rather see-through.  I suggest throwing on a slip to hide the goods.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

What I'm wearing:
Maxi Dress (size S)- Forever 21; found here
Gold Sandals- Forever 21 (last season);  also cute

  5. This is a very cute dress, and I agree! Even if it is a midi length dress, it works just as nicely and I hate super long maxi dresses that drag...
