I love florals, fall, wraps, and maxi dresses, so naturally I snagged this City Chic dress when I realized it had all 4 elements. More is more, right?!
City Chic Dark Palm Wrap Maxi Dress
Rothy's Flats – note about these at the end
Gucci sunglasses (similar)
(There's a Gucci outlet nearby 😂)
Earrings c/o Miss Molly Vintage
Kate Spade necklace
Despite my feet looking like they're falling out of my Rothy's, I love them. I was just mid-movement and it's a weird catch. They are really flexible and work well for my really wide feet. Like most flats, they don't have any arch support and I have super flat feet – 1 worse than the other due to my running injury and surgery. So this week, I actually added some Powerstep insoles and they're even better! I was thrilled the insoles fit the Rothy's since they're so stretchy and comfy. They are an investment, but if you need a pair of flats at-the-ready that will last years to come, these are great. I've even put them in the wash and they came out no worse for the wear!
Onto the dress! The dark palm print is so pretty and screams fall. This dress has a slip underneath it that is short, and the dress is a true wrap. I'll admit that even as a wrap dress connoisseur, it took a couple of tries to get the wrap right. But man, it was worth it! I'm 5'10 and wearing the XXL/24. The slip has stretch, but the overlay doesn't.
Feeling quite dark and moody for fall. The bell sleeves reminded me of something that Stevie Nicks would wear. If you're looking for something not so covered, City Chic also has this print in a spaghetti strap maxi.
