H&M Finds Part 2 - Olive Floral Maxi Dress

The last thing I bought from my H&M trip was this Olive Green Floral Maxi Dress (not sure why it looks brown in the pics).  I have a weird obsession with maxi dresses but they are exceptionally useful when pregnant.  Somewhere around the 2nd-3rd trimester, my legs have a tendency to burst with varicose veins - not cute - but maxi dresses keep them covered!  This dress will need to be hemmed because I will be tripping all over the hem but otherwise, I really like it!

What do you think?

Cardigan:  Gap Maternity Cropped Cardigan
Dress:  H&M Olive Floral Maxi Dress
Necklace:  F21

And eep, I must have selectively forgotten that once preggy, I get bigger ALL over including my arms, legs, face, and back.  I have some major working out to do post-baby LOL.


  1. A lot of people say maxi dresses are a big no-no for petites but I think you pull it off effortlessly! Love the print too but do get it hemmed a bit so you don't trip!

  2. This maxi dress looks great on you! I love that the floral print is perfectly sized too - not too big or too small. I'm still looking for one that doesn't make me look stumpy!

  3. Seems perfect for non-maternity / maternity wear!

    You look so chic!

  4. love this maxi on you! i can't believe thats its not too long at all. the print is so pretty too.

  5. I love this maxi on you! I agree with Aubrey- def makes you look long and lean!! :)

  6. Wow. I've always thought that petites can't wear maxis, but I don't think that's true anymore. This is super fitted and slimming!

    Our weather's been crazy. Last week we went back down to 50s and now we're in the high 80s again.

  7. Love it! It makes you look super tall!

  8. The dress looks great on you. It makes you look so tall and lean. I bet it's comfy to wear too. I sent you an email ealier today. I hope that helps. Have a great weekend!

  9. i think you look fantastic! it's like this dress was made for you! :D

  10. You pulled the dress off so well! I love it on you :D

  11. Two thumbs up on maxi dresses! This one looks just as good on you as the other. I'll have to keep this in mind when I'm pregnant... in the very distant future.

  12. Way to go with the maxi dress! I'm still looking for one. =) As for the weight gain, I can't tell, you still look quite svelte! =)

  13. a good obssession in your case, because you look so good in the maxi's you've posted! I have not yet found a single maxi that looks that great on me.

  14. Elle - Thanks so much! I've always heard that about maxis and petites too but I figure if petites like Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie do it - it can't be that bad, right? :D

    Petite Mom - Thank you! I'm missing your posts!! Do you ever shop at H&M - they have sooo many cute options :)

    Elaine - Aww, thank you doll!

    Ping - Thanks!! I really love the print and the color - H&M is such a great store! :)

    Aubrey - Yay - thanks so much! Looking long and lean is such a hard thing for me to accomplish - especially nowadays LOL.

    Annie - Thank you! Another Yay for looking tall! :D

    Aki - Thank you! Wow - I never knew the southwest had so much weather variance too. I thought it was a weird midwestern thing :D

    Jen - Thanks so much! :)

    Sydney - Thank you! It's definitely comfy and thanks again for the email! It was so thoughtful of you to take the time to email me so many options - extremely helpful!!

    Mimi - Aw, you are so sweet - thank you!! :)

    Jessy - Thank you for your sweet words! :)

    Cee - Thank you! You would definitely rock a maxi dress - you definitely already have the lean and long build for it!

    Jess - Thank you - you are too kind! H&M has been really good for me in terms of finding cute maxis for good prices - you should check it out!

    Olyvia - Aww, thank you! Try H&M! They have super cute designs for very good prices! Sometimes Old Navy also has some cute ones but usually they fit a little too big (even the XS sizes).


I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
