Gail Carriegr wears a 1930s Style Breezy Blue Maxi Dress for RWA Nationals i2018 in Denver

I was recently in Denver at RWA. Oof, I forgot how hot Denver could get so I was delighted I'd packed this new acquisition of mine...

I've gotten really into maxi dresses these days.

Honestly? Because I don't have to shave my legs. But also they have this tall drink of water feeling, and I don't have to wear high heels with them. Which means I'm not really that tall, but I feel like I look that way in a maxi dress. Make sense?

Anyway this one came from Nordstrom Rack, and I'm not usually one for the Shoulder peek, but it had a 1930's thing going for it, so I couldn't resist.

Here's something similar that has that breezy see-through thing...

Sorry the original dress is no longer available.

So what else am I wearing?

Outfit Breakdown!

  1. I ~love~ the dress, which looks smashing on you! And, so practical for all the reasons you mention. I think the turban does not do it justice (wrong color); it seems too small... or unbalanced, perhaps. Tho, I get that a turban is valuable for travel; easy to pack and eliminates the need to attend to hair styling. I think I’d find a bigger turban, wrap, or hat to be better proportioned with a long skirt.

    All-in-all, this is a terrific look for you. The length suits you quite well. I look forward to seeing more long dresses on your travels.
