Maxi dresses can be really flattering on petite figures. When worn with heels, they elongate your body and create the illusion of looking taller and create a slimming effect when worn in dark solid colors. The ruffle detailing on this maxi dress is also flattering for smaller-chested women, adding volume to the top portion of your body while keeping the bottom of the silhouette plain. This particular ruffle maxi dress has adjustable straps so that you can alter the length depending on whether you’re wearing flats or heels. Additionally, I like the flowing fabric of this, as compared to a jersey material which hugs the body.

Unfortunately, this exact dress is currently unavailable but Nordstrom carries a ton of great options, on both regular and petite.

      Thanks, April! I totally agree. Dinner with friends is the perfect occasion for this dress. That’s what I love about it–you can make it as dressy or casual as you like.

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
