So funny because I live in solid maxis and I was just making up a polyvore set to define my summer style :)

I saw a girl wearing a solid black maxi dress this weekend. It looked amazing. I have sworn off maxis but maybe a black one would work for my short height. Thanks for commenting on my blog! :)

What a great look! I never even considered pairing the 2 together but I am going to do it now! I have a few flannel shirts my hubby can't fit anymore so I can pull this look off :)
