YESSSSSS. I've been growing out my hair and it's finally long enough to stay in a ponytail. Barely. But, I'll take it. Everyday I want to chop it off, but then I just look at Merrick's hair as inspiration and hold on for one more day. *Cue Wilson Phillips*
Once July hit and life finally settled down the first thing I wanted to do was shop. One swoop around Marshall's and $16 later I knocked one item off my wish list--a black maxi dress. Score! Just as I was experimenting with my hair and trying on this dress B texted me from work saying he had free tickets to the fair, so this is how I went. Like I said before, maxi dresses are perfect for pretty much any occasion which is why I wanted to add a black one to my arsenal. Maybe I was overdressed, especially compared to the MANY see-through tops, crop tops, and butt cheek exposing shorts that we saw. But hmm...possibly overdressed or exposed butt cheeks? Sounds like a toss-up to me.
Below are a million black maxi dresses. (Okay, just eight...and technically number 5 is navy.) The details of black dresses do NOT show up well unless you see close ups, but all the dresses in the bottom row have a bit more special detailing at the necklines. All are from Kohl's, Target, Old Navy, and Forever 21.
