Maxi Dress & Thoughts on Self Confidence



I might sound like a broken record player when I say this, but maxi dresses have become my ultimate favorite. This type of dress makes me feel like all dolled up with little to no effort, which is mainly what and why I love them so much. Since my first maxi dress, I have been addicted and continue to “hoard” them. But more than comfort and style, there is a certain confidence that I feel when I wear a maxi dress. 

Dress: Shein (only $16.99!!)
Watch: JORD (c/o)
Necklace: Rings & Tings (c/o) and ZNU (c/o)


And I think that we all should have that type of dress or clothing. You know, the type that makes you feel good about yourself. That is one aspect about personal style that a lot of us often overlook, or not pay as much attention as we should – the enhanced feeling of self-confidence. I will spare you the blabber about styling. You make your own rules. Wear what you like. Wear it with confidence. If you think you look good (and you feel good wearing it), you will look good. Trust me. After all, style is subjective.

That is exactly what I felt when I put this dress on. I feel feminine, I feel sexy. I find myself constantly reaching for it in my closet. It’s also less than $20 so there was no second guessing myself when I added this to my cart.

What type of clothing gives you a heightened level of self-confidence?

  6. I agree, we should definitely wear whatever makes us feel happiest and most comfortable! :) I love my maxi dresses too, especially now in pregnancy as they are still just as comfortable and easy to wear as before.
