Floral Ruffle Tunic

Today I’m sharing another fun floral outfit. I’ve been adding a lot of floral pieces to my closet lately and this is definitely one of my top favorites. I found this beautiful floral ruffle tunic at my friend’s boutique. The bright floral print and ruffle hem caught my eyes and I knew I had to have it.  I normally gravitate toward lighter colors for summer but I love how the blue and pink poppy branches stand out against the black background. I absolutely adore the ruffle hem. It adds a touch of playfulness to this beautiful dress.

This tunic is so soft and comfortable. I wore it on a scorching hot 90 degree (that’s pretty hot for Seattle) day and I was able to stay cool. The relaxed fit is very forgiving. I took these photos after a big lunch and I didn’t have to suck my stomach in. I wanted to keep this look summery and paired it with summer accessories. This straw tote is an oldie but I love it because I can throw everything I need like my makeup and baby bottles. It’s my summer mommy bag. These nude sandals are so cute and comfortable.

This adorable tunic is from Agnes & Dora. I was recently introduced to Agnes & Dora by my friend Walika who’s an independent sales representative. The brand offers effortless fashion featuring the latest trends for women. There’re so many beautiful tops, dresses and leggings to choose from. Walika has so many amazing selections at her boutique.

Floral Maxi Dress + Tips for finding Maxi Dresses for Petites

Floral dresses are my favorite things to wear in spring/summer.  Flowers always put me in a cheerful mood and so do the floral dresses. This flowy maxi dress is so pretty and sweet. It has so many pretty details. I love how the waist tie helps accentuate my waistline and makes me look slimmer.  The v-neck and side slits add just the perfect amount of sexiness. The puff sleeves aren’t usually my thing but I actually like how they look on this dress. I think they add an extra feminine appeal to the entire look. I wore my favorite strappy heels to keep this look feminine. This is a calf length dress and fits me perfectly as a maxi.

I love maxi dresses but being extra petite, I always have difficult time finding ones that fit me without having to cut off ¼ of the dress. Most maxi dresses I fell in love with aren't available in petite. I either end up needing a complicated alteration or  losing pretty hem details. The complicated alterations can cost more than the price of the dress. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with midi and calf length dresses and loving the results. Most of them fit me perfectly as a maxi. Question for my fellow petites, how do you shop for maxi dresses? I’d love to hear your tips.
