Horizontal stripes. They're the new polka-dots. As in: I love, love, love them and wear them maybe too much. (Nope. Not too much. I take it back. No such thing.)
I bought this dress when I was pregnant, and it was awesome then, and it's awesome (just a lot longer) now. It is my current "maxi dress mumu." I always have one in rotation. I get home, take off the schoolmarm gear and throw on a maxi dress.
These are some eBay Danksos. I thought about buying new Danksos for one half of a second and then realized that they are too out-of-control expensive new. That's okay. These suit me just fine. I've been having a problem with my hip (What is happening?! I am 34 years old! I think it's a combo of getting a lot of exercise in not-great shoes and carrying around my precious baby boy.), and I've vowed to only wear really supportive shoes until it goes away.
