 Maxi: Marimekko for H&M, Jacket: H&M, Booties: Joie, Accessories: J.Crew, Club Monaco and vintage bracelets, Burberry watch, H&M, F21 and Banana Republic rings, Mulberry for Target bag

I found this wonderfully patterned maxi by Marimekko for H&M on sale years ago. It's been hanging in my closet for a good while being ignored (insert sad face). I keep dreaming for the day I'm on a sunny beach somewhere abroad and how perfect this dress will be when I'm there. Despite this dream having not come to fruition (yet), I have never considered donating or selling this dress. I'm just too in love with the print. It's definitely bold, and not for everyone, but I feel I would regret giving it away if I ever do. So until I'm relaxing on that dreamy beach, I am perfectly content urbanizing the dress.

Well, I made it to Friday! I'm sure everyone is relieved the weekend is here as much as I am. I am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends and just vegging and eating. Thanks to all of you who wished me a relaxing weekend! Do you have any special plans?


  1. This dress is lovely! I'm so glad you didn't wait for a beach day to wear it!

  2. That is one gorgeous maxi! Glad you busted it out of your closet! :) I also love how you paired it with those bright red booties! :) Have a lovely weekend. I'm hoping to get lots of crafting done :)

  3. so lucky to have scored marimekko! i never get anything from the H&M collabs because they're always sold out, lol.
    but the pop of rust in your boots looks AMAZING with the palette!

  4. That dress is so pretty! I can't believe you've been hiding that away! (I have trouble finding maxi dresses that are long enough for me so I'm so so jealous of that gem of a maxi!)
