A Floral Maxi in Seaside, Florida

A Floral Maxi in Seaside, Florida

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing with you a look I wore on our trip back home to Seaside, FL. This floral maxi is so pretty and perfect for Spring, the best time of year. Sometimes it’s nice to get out-of-town for even just a few days. Two weeks ago we went back to Florida which happened to be during Spring Break but thankfully we stayed with my in-laws on 30a so we were able to avoid the craziness that is PCB in March.ย  IMG_4332 Gray Finge Handbag IMG_4336 IMG_4318 IMG_4339 Floral Maxi IMG_4352 Rachel Tindall IMG_4369 Seaside, FL IMG_4383 IMG_4390 IMG_4395 IMG_4397 IMG_4405

Wearing a dress by Lumiere, Schutz heels, aย HelFyre fringed handbag, and Ray-Ban sunglasses.

It wasn’t too warm but not too cold either. I’ll be like Goldilocks and say it was just right. Though when we took these photos in Seaside’s Ruskin Place I was feeling just a bit chilly in my floral maxi dress. Speaking of this dress, I have to say it is one of my favorite items we sell on Heaven & HelFyre. It has the front split which is pretty popular right now and the pink color is just gorgeous! I’m also a sucker for a low back! I also brought along one of our handbags from our HelFyre collection which I think went pretty well with the maxi dress giving it a bit of a bohemian vibe.

p.s. The gals at CS Gems posted an interview with me today! You can find it here.

    Very cute! I love the low cut in the back and the pattern is sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ The purse brings your whole ensemble together

    Thanks Marie! You’re sweet! I’m not tall either, only 5’3, that’s why they are actually so great for us, they make us appear to look taller!

    Thanks Lynndee! I’m only 5’3 though so you can definitely make them work! Plus they make us short girls appear taller!

    I am a huge fan of the maxi because they are so dang comfortable. I love the setting you shoe for your pictures.

  6. May 18, 2015 / 6:52 am

    If I would have been a little taller, I would certainly wear a maxi dress. ๐Ÿ™‚ That maxi dress is pretty, and so is your bag.

  7. May 18, 2015 / 12:34 am

    That’s a very pretty maxi dress and you’re rocking it! I also love the detail on the back. I’ve always wanted to try a maxi dress but I’m not sure if I could pull it off because I’m not tall. ๐Ÿ˜

    The front part of the maxi dress looks so simple with floral print. The back part really looked nice and elegant while showing some skin.

    omg this is such a lovely maxi dress!! I live by a lake and this would be so cute to wear to a lakeside restaurant:)

    I love the backless feature of this maxi and you look quite lovely in it. For my height and shape, the maxi and I do not get along well.

  11. May 17, 2015 / 11:05 am

    I live in maxi dresses during the summer. I love both the print and the drape on this one.

    That maxi dress is so beautiful, the back of it is just stunning. I can never resist a floral print dress!

  13. May 17, 2015 / 10:34 am

    You look beautiful in your floral maxi dress! I also like how you combined it with the fringe bag! The total look is awesome!

    What a very pretty maxi dress. I have always been fond of dresses and really like the one your wearing. The bag is cute too.

  15. May 16, 2015 / 1:52 pm

    I love maxi dresses…I’m quite petite so it’s difficult to find one that fits my properly (since they’re always very long) but I do own a few!

  16. May 16, 2015 / 10:46 am

    Loved the dress and that bag! I did check out the bag already and it’s a really great price! Wonderful sharing – and sounds like you had a great time with family in a beautiful area ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. May 16, 2015 / 10:43 am

    Maxi dresses are my favorite for summer. They are so feminine and comfortable. Love the back of this one.

  18. May 16, 2015 / 9:38 am

    That dress is beautiful!! Wonder if they have any petite sizes?! I’m so short and most maxi dresses are wayyyy too long. You look completely GORGEOUS in this!!

  19. May 16, 2015 / 8:57 am

    I love that floral maxi dress, it is so pretty and perfect for summer in Florida! I live in Miami and I can totally see myself wearing that this summer!

    What a gorgeous Maxi. I’ve never worn one, I’m so self conscious but I plan to buy a few this summer! I also love your bag, that is gorgeous. The whole outfit is beautiful.

    This is such a gorgeous dress indeed and looks great on you. I love the purse to with the fringes. I will have to check the out for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  22. May 16, 2015 / 12:09 am

    I love wearing maxi dresses during the warm weather! They are effortlessly chic and comfortable.

  23. May 15, 2015 / 11:16 pm

    I love maxi dresses – I”m not too keen on my back being exposed, but I am a lot older than you are! โ˜บ I like them because they hide my tummy!

    What a gorgeous dress, it is flattering in all the right places. I am going to be dying to buy this just to have it not look nearly as good on me. But it’s allllll good!

  26. May 15, 2015 / 7:03 pm

    Such a pretty Maxi Dress, nice and cool for those hot days. I’m definitely buying a lot more Maxi Dresses this Summer!

  27. May 15, 2015 / 4:10 pm

    These are great photos. I’m really liking this dress. It works perfectly with the spring colors and the sunlight.

  28. May 15, 2015 / 4:06 pm

    What a beautiful dress, love the flower pattern and the design of it all! You also look so beautiful in it, it suits you very well.

    I love that dress. It is so cute and flowing. Ugh! Being of short stature I need to have them hemmed to my size. Not an issue my momma taught me to sew years ago.

  30. May 15, 2015 / 12:55 pm

    What a gorgeous dress! You are the prettiest hippy on the block, I’m sure! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. May 15, 2015 / 9:56 am

    That is a gorgeous maxi dress! I love the back of it. It looks so soft and light!

  32. May 15, 2015 / 9:31 am

    What a cute maxi and that fringe purse is too darn cute. I got a maxi dress for my Birthday yesterday from my daughter. It’s cute but I’d love to have one with the back out like yours as well. Because of my failed back surgery, maxi’s are about the only thing that’s comfortable enough to wear because I can wear flat sandals with them.

  33. May 15, 2015 / 7:36 am

    When I was growing up, we went to PCB every summer – that was before it became the spring break place to be. I love maxis and yours is gorgeous. Every year when we travel to the Caribbean, my suitcase is filled with maxis. They are wrinkle resistant and can be dressed up or down. Love the photos!!

    I rarely buy maxi dresses because I am super short and they are always too long for me. I love the look of them, though and yours is super cute.

  36. April 27, 2015 / 6:22 am

    loving the 90s vibes from those flowers. super pretty and i love a trip out of town!

  37. April 26, 2015 / 5:55 am
