Summer is almost here and I love wearing maxi dresses! They’re just so perfect for every occasion. Whether it’s going to the park with the kids or going out for dinner, every mom needs a nice maxi dress.
As a petite person, it can be tough finding a maxi dress with the perfect length. Even with heels some maxi dresses are still too long.
I went to Kohl’s the other day during their semi annual sale to shop for summer clothes. I usually shop in the juniors section because most of the clothes fit better than the women’s department. In particular, I really love the Candies brand in the juniors section. Their clothes are usually stylish, quality, and affordable! I just avoid anything with too much embellishment.
I tried on a few of the maxi dresses that day. Some were either too loose in the chest and armpit area, or too tight and uncomfortable. Fit is the most important thing when it comes to looking put together. I hate it when I see something cute on the rack and the fit looks awful!
Finally, I tried the Candies halter maxi dress (in size small) and it fit perfectly. The material was also soft and stretchy! Perfect for summer time. The price was even better at under $40 for a quality dress! Kohl’s always has sales and coupons so you can use one of their coupons to get the dress for even less.
The length was slightly long for me, but it wasn’t a problem when I wore heels. As you can see in the pictures, the dress length was perfect for my five-foot height when I paired it with heels. I like to wear wedges or block heels, which are stylish and comfortable for everyday wear.
I wore Kohl’s Apt. 9 high heel sandals in the color sand with this dress. The neutral color of the shoes went well with the color and print of the dress. Also, nude color shoes helps create the illusion of longer legs when you’re petite. I hope you check out this dress because it’s a really comfy and affordable maxi dress for summer.
