Maxi dresses are so difficult.
I know they’re essentially summer wear, so I’m not bemoaning that. No, that I can overcome. How do you make a maxi dress professional? Why, throw on a blazer, of course. And if it’s a blazer with nifty details like brash, gold buttons and and a tuxedo collar, then so much the better. And if still in doubt, how about tossing in a pair of snakeskin oxfords into the mix? They’re sure to up your professionalism ante and keep your footsies happy as well.
So, no. Not complaining about being seasonally inappropriate. What bothers me to no end about maxi dresses is that there are only so many poses you can do in them without looking derivative of yourself. I think it’s the hidden legs thing; you can’t see what the legs are doing so there doesn’t seem much variety in the photos. And there’s only so many things I can do with my arms without looking like a tool.
Yeah, love the wearing of maxis; hate the photographing of them. Especially indoors where I don’t even get the benefit of a stray breeze or three to liven it up.
Ah, well. C’est la vie. Can’t wait for fall/winter (same thing in SoCal) so I can go back to being authentically happy in my pics instead of just faking it.
P.S. We’re gonna pretend that some of those flowers are hibiscus, ok?
