New purchases...falling for summer trends.

Like most new fashion trends, I balk at them at first...then fall in love with them when I actually try them out.

Maxi dresses are no different. As a short, short person, I never thought I could pull off a maxi dress...but now I own about 10 of them I think!

...including three new ones I just got from Target and Old Navy. I've seen the Target dresses circulating on the blog circuit, so I guess I won't be too unique when I wear them, but I LOVE them. So cute, comfortable and easy for summer.

And as a short person, I'm in love with wedges - which are a perfect compliment to these maxis to keep their hems from sweeping the floor.

Not a maxi, but this dress is super cute, affordable and will be
great to slip on over my bathing suit after a day on the beach.

I was on the fence with these, but I think they'll be fun to pair
with lots of my outfits this Spring and Summer.

This isn't a good picture, but this is the last Target dress when I wore it
Friday to happy hour on the Shem Creek Bar & Grill dock. It was chilly, so I paired
it with my jean jacket. I got lots of compliments on it. It's perfect for a Clemson game
in the Fall too! :)
What fashion trends are you stocking up on for the summer? What bargain finds have you found out there? I've been really impressed with Old Navy this year.

I was the SAME way with maxi dresses. I was like they are too trendy and are going to go out of style so fast, but they are one of my favorite things to wear in the summer at the beach when it gets cool at night!

Cute! Old Navy is always hit or miss for me, but I really like those first two dresses! Did you get them from the ON at Towne Center??

I have to be honest, I have never even tried on a maxi dress. Being 5' 3" =I am scared I will look silly :)

I love that first maxi dress, and the Target dress you're wearing! I think maxi dresses are the cutest, but I'm only 5'4, so I'm scared I can't pull one off!
