How To Wear A Dark Floral Maxi Dress

Can a woman have too many maxi dresses?  ha ha, I'm beginning to wonder now that I'm the proud owner of six maxis!  I just love the comfort and ease of knit maxi dresses.  I like looking like I'm dressed up but I'm so comfortable I could sleep in what I'm wearing.  This is a maxi I received in my August box from Stitch Fix.  It's made of a soft thin knit material so it's so comfortable!  


I think the dark floral will transition me from summer to fall nicely.  Here I am styling the dress with black sandals, but I can see it with booties and a jean jacket when the weather gets colder.


This dress is by Loveappella and is called "Torri Knit Maxi Dress".  I couldn't find this exact dress on-line other than Poshmark, but here is a great alternative on Amazon.    Speaking of Poshmark, I've recently discovered that I can find a lot of Stitch Fix pieces on Poshmark.  I always regretted sending this black floral top back, but I found it on Poshmark for only $22;  half the cost Stitch Fix was asking.  So I scooped it up!  I've also seen this dress on Poshmark, but it was sold out or not in my size.  I've learned that before buying from Stitch Fix, to check Poshmark first because I might find it cheaper!


Like most Stitch Fix pieces, the dress has several charming little details.  I like that this dress not only has sleeves (most of my maxis are halters) but it's a trending flutter sleeve.  There is also a cute crochet detail on the shoulder.

The dress has a wrap style which is flattering on all figure types, but it does reveal more cleavage.  If  I wore this dress to church, I would definitely wear a cami underneath it.



For accessories I chose black and white jewelry and I carried a blush pink clutch also from Stitch Fix (Sole Society, similar bag HERE).



Have A Great Day!  Amy

  1. What a beautiful maxi dress! I like the pink clutch with it! :)

    I think you can never have too many maxi dresses either - I definitley have more than 6, oops! They are something I wear year-round though and really get value of money from! :)

    Hope that your week has been a good one and you have a nice weekend ahead of you :)

    1. I was late to the party too. I tried maxi skirts and didn't like them on me at all, so I thought Maxi dresses would look terrible on me as well. Boy was I wrong! I wish I would have started wearing them sooner.

  6. That's a gorgeous maxi dress on you and I love that pink clutch! You did a great job in finding a "dupe" for it on Amazon, too. I haven't bought anything on Poshmark but probably need to have a look!

  7. The dark floral is so pretty and will be a great transition piece for fall too! I always forget about Poshmark! Such a good way to find those pieces you love at a lower price point!

  9. You look very elegant and tall! I do the same with some wrap dresses, wear a cami when going to church, it just feels more appropriate. You're right, it's a great dress for transitioning into fall with boots and a jacket.
