OOTD: Shabby Chic-ness!


Before I moved to San Antonio I owned a total of 1 whole Maxi dress.  San Francisco's cool temperature climate is not really conducive to wearing maxi dresses.  haha


I've never been much of a fan of hot weather preferring fall because you get to layer your outfits and boots come out to play!   In a matter of 3 short weeks of living in S.A. I've acquired a total of 10 maxi dresses! hahahaha.  The daily weather is on average 105 degrees and short of wearing a t-shirt and shorts on a daily basis I've found that maxi's are crazy comfortable while managing to still look chic and pulled together.


You've been officially warned you will be seeing a lot of Maxi's until we move to Germany haha.

  17. Gah, Lisa, you are so pretty. I love how you do your eye makeup. Tutorial, please?!

    I am the queen of the maxi. As you are learning first hand, it's one of the few ways to look put together and decent in this hellish weather. ♥

  18. I think the chanel makes everything less casual and more dressy :) I love that necklace too, so pretty! I only own one maxi, but I'm convinced they look great on everyone!

  19. 105 degrees? That's crazy! I live in southern California and it's actually been cool enough for me to wear jeans! :o

    You look great in maxi dresses! I find that they make people look taller, so I'm tempted to get one...XD

  23. Lisa, this is so cute and I love Maxi dresses. I've been wearing them all the time and this one is SO cute on you. They are actually really comfy on flights too, haha but I got checked this past weekend twice because they said Maxi dresses are so long on women they're worried so they did the pat down so be careful if you go flying in one. LOL. This black one on you is so chic. xoDale

  24. love that cardi, Lisa! The print is sooo cute! Oh man, I wish I had more maxi dresses that were my length/height. It's a pain finding one I'd like to wear and it having to be a foot too long for me.

  39. I heart maxis and you look so fab in all the ones I've seen on you so far! I still can't get over how gorgeous your hair is - so smooth and silky looking!

    We had some hot temps here for what seemed like an eternity (a record-breaking 17 straight days of high nineties to hundreds) so I definitely empathize because I love fall too! It just reminds me of how excited I was to buy back to school clothes and it still triggers a feeling of renewal and SHOPPING LOL.
