Since I’ve started donning the headscarf, this is my first time wearing a maxi dress. I’ve been avoiding maxi dresses for a while simply because I didn’t know how to rock it. The only way is to pair it with a cardigan or blazer, or with a sleeve inner inside (which is not a look I would do, to be honest, sorry). Because of my petite figure, I feel like I’m drowning in fabric whenever I wear dresses or jubahs. But I guess I could always go for cropped blazers or belts so that I don’t look like a bunch of fabric ate me.

I love the cool print on this dress (new obsession with blue these days) so I didn’t feel too girly wearing this dress. And the breeze and freedom a flowy dress gives is just perfect for our weather these days. I could swish swish swish all day long.
