Before dating Gil, I had no idea what Flag Day was but now I make it a point to be around for the holiday every year. Its one of my favourite American holidays to celebrate (I can't say I really know the history behind the day) with Gil and his friends. I've enjoyed being around for the last few years and thoroughly appreciate them taking in a Clueless Canadian for the day!
I'm a fan of anything that shows off my legs, to be honest. However, something about this dress drew me in and I'm really happy I gave in. I really felt like a princess when I put it on. I probably spent a good 20 minutes before leaving just dancing around and twirling! Its so absurdly comfortable too. Sure, its not going to be the most practical choice for hot days but at least I won't have to worry about the wind blowing up my dress. I might try to include more maxis in my wardrobe this summer or rather, just in general. What do you think? What are some of your favourite maxi dresses?
Generally speaking, I order a 3x from Forever21 but I wasn't too sure how I'd fit into this dress. I'm used to skirts with tons of stretch or free flowing hips. This dress does have lining, so its not as free fitting as I'd hope. I was still able to get away with it though and I have ample room to feel comfortable. My favourite part about this dress? I was able to go bra free! I'm all for the lift and support a bra gives me but there's something really exciting about going out braless. I'm also very weird and finicky about being able to see my bra strap, especially with a dress as simplistic and pretty as this. I wouldn't want to distract from any of the aspects that I really fell for about this piece.
