{Fashion} Along Came a Maxi

Maxi Dress: Apricot Lane

I've said it once, I'll say it again...I heart maxi dresses. Is it just me, or do you automatically feel more dressed up and fancy when you're wearing a long dress?? It's also one of the easiest things to throw on and go.  Here are three reasons this dress is perfect for many different occasions:
1. It's comfortable, soft and flowy
2. The jewel-tone colors are divine
3. Who doesn't love a little cheetah print worked in?! 

If you own a favorite maxi, where is from? -- inquiring minds want to know ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend! I'm not sure what I'll be up to, but you can bet I'll be showing glimpses on instagram! {michaelanoelle} Stay tuned for my weekend sponsor feature. I'm so excited to highlight some awesome shops and blogs! Woot :)
Happy Friday!


  1. My favorite one is a lucky find from TJ Maxx - mostly navy with red and grey in the pattern. I love it!

  2. How do I not own a maxi yet? Must get one STAT! ;)

  3. my favorite one is from American Eagle. The top is crocheted and the skirt is super light material so it flows really nice.

  4. I just bought my first one this summer and I'm hooked! I bought mine off of mod cloth.com and was surprised as how well it fit without trying it on. Especially being 5'8", it's hard to find one long enough but this one perfects hits just above the floor.

  5. You look gorgeous! The colors on this maxi are so pretty!

  6. i love it! it's definitely a dress that on the hanger i'd be like "hmm idk about that one" but it totally works on you!

  7. Love that dress! I'm living in maxi dresses these days!

  8. Super cute! We actually have an Apricot Lane up here...shocking, I know!! Have a great weekend M!

  9. You look beautiful Michaela! Pretty colors in that dress and it looks super comfy. I've been living in the couple maxis that I have. So easy to put on and feel feminine. I'd like to check out that maxi you're wearing. Wish we had Apricot Lane in my area.

  10. That's such a pretty maxi!
    My favorite one that I own is from Kiki La'Rue! it's the perfect length, it's flattering and SO comfy!

  11. That dress looks so great on you! Love the color and print!

  12. Cute girly! I haven't gotten into maxi dresses... i've tried a bunch on, but since I'm so tall, I tend to look like an elongated stringbean in them :) haha

  13. I wore my maxi skirt from Gap out this weekend & I do just feel regal holding it up as I walked up stairs or over puddles :)

    you, of course, look adorable!

  14. Prettiest girl on the blog block! Love the dress!
