Trending now: Emerald Green Maxi Dress


Hello Ladies

I am sharing with you my very first maxi dress! I loved the color, a emerald blue green maxi, silky material with some cool tassel ties around the waist.I joined the bandwagon at last!


A trendy tassel tie around the waist.


One of my favorite bracelets from Chaos NY c/o 


A pair of my favorite vintage earrings with mint, pearl and silver tones.


This is the day after my Birthday. Had a great time out on a boat on Lake Norman. We rented a pontoon, had little lifejackets for the pups, packed a great lunch with some Pinot Grigio and I was going in that lake, as my mom would say, (celebrate your “good days”) as I think we all should do!  I will share pics of my day’s excursions on Instagram, and may try to put some on the blog. Before EDS, I was always active, very sports minded, so I wanted to do something for my Bday that reminded me of that. Part relaxation-part fun in the water. I received some dresses and the clutch you have seen, so fun and fashion, what more could a girl ask for? ! will be posting more boat outing pics on Instagram.You should have seen the little ones in their life jackets, which came with a handle on top as to be an excellent place to grab them if they fell in, but I held up Truffles and said, “Look hon, a doggie purse!” haha

Ok, now where was I. On to fashion…This was bought from the Loft, where I first fell in love with the color. After seeing many ladies in the style, I decided it was time I got one. The comfort and ease of styling was a factor I considered to be a plus.

I love the tassel as the tie for the waist, details such as this are what I often look for as well. I paired with with my black fringe sandals,and the vintage earrings. It is no wonder women love maxi dresses for their ease and the feminine factor as well.

What do you like about maxi dresses?  Do you now own a collection of them 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!

    This is a great first maxi dress to have – you will want to reach for it over and over again. I do have a handful of maxi dresses, they are just so comfy to wear this time of the year.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!

    I believe emerald green was Pantone’s 2013 ‘Color of the Year’, and it still shows its longevity — you make it look fabulous, especially b/c of your hair color! Now that you’re hooked on the maxi dress, you must work on finding ‘summer to autumn’ transition colors, such as a rust-colored orange,
    mustard yellow or brown 😉

    A warm welcome to the Maxi Dress Collective, Jess! And what a first dress to kick off your collection with. Be warned, they can be addictive! The colour is so flattering on you; I’m drawn to that emerald gree too. All those jewel tones are so beautiful. I think I have 6 (eek) maxi dresses now plus a maxi skirt. I just find them so easy and flattering to wear; you can dress them up with it feeling ott or keep them casual but chic.

    So pleased you were able to enjoy your special day.
