Spring Fling // The Tiered Maxi Dress

tiered maxi dress

Spring is the perfect time to wear your favorite dresses, even on your more casual weekend days!  I love how easy it is to throw on a maxi dress and feel ready to take on the world while feeling super comfortable for just about anything, especially as a Mom! Being petite can make it a challenge for me to find the perfect maxi dress without looking “lost” in all the fabric. Enter the tiered maxi dress! Wearing a tiered maxi gives dimension to your look and definition at your waist that you may not otherwise get with a straight long maxi dress.

I personally love how fun and girly this dress feels. It goes from spring into summer easily, so on a cooler day, I could simply wear a cardigan over it. And because ruffles and a windy day make for a fun photo shoot, I thought I’d add a little joy with my new favorite phone case! I love that it keeps me hands free and is a wallet as well for my most important cards.

These wedges are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned, and they come in so many colors! As a girl who loves wearing heels, wedges are perfect way to get the height I want and the comfort I need.

    I’m on the petite side as well and have been searching for breezy maxi dresses for the warmer weather, so this post comes at the perfect time! I love the tiered detail in the chic, dark colors and agree it definitely helps in defining the silhouette. I think the vertical stripes also help to add length and keep the outfit looking quite slim as well. Definitely tempted to buy this piece now! Also, your phone case is just adorable! And so amazing that it has all the compartments for cards, cash, etc. My kind of case!

    Such a ravishing striped maxi dress! Adore the frills on it and the length is just perfect! Hate it when they hit the floor and in my opinion, this is just the perfect length for a spring-summer dress. I’m still trying to find the perfect striped one, but thankfully your suggestions might have saved me. Thanks for inspiring us. Have a lovely day! xx

    This dress really is so fun and girly! I really like how it has the ruffles under the bust. You’ve styled it so beautifully for Summer too with the wedges

    AHH! I am in love with this tiered maxi dress! So cute and perfect for weekend wear. I love throwing on a dress. They are so fun and flirty, especially this one! I also really like your wedge espadrilles! Thanks for sharing!

    It really is a fun and girly dress and it also looks super comfortable, but yet with that super elegant touch! I absolutely understand that you might feel that a maxi has a lot of fabric, but it doesn’t look like it at all in the pictures, quite the contrary, I’d say it’s the perfect dress for you! :)

    I Love that this is a good switch up from the traditional maxi. And tiers and ruffles give it so much life. So perfect for spring and even summer! And that case! I seriously need to get something like this. I keep saying I will!

  8. May 3, 2017 / 4:36 pm

    You are fine with this dress I like how you been matched with the wedges and my favorite style it may be like yours, because I like the strioes, the cotton ruffles. Especially this period obsesses with the Ruches, with shirts and some rompers maybe a new maxi dress or a new jeans skirt

  9. May 3, 2017 / 4:02 pm

    I want your entire outfit!!!!! Every bit of it is perfect, including your phone case! As far as maxi dress go, I used to live in them but then stopped feeling inspired last year and haven’t worn one since! This one however, is so refreshing and I must get it! The fact that it’s tiered paired with the stripes really gives it so much dimension and I just adore it! I know the feeling of wanting to be comfortable as a mom! Just today I was peed on on my freshly pressed clothes! LOL! I should own a dry cleaning business because it would likely be cheaper at this point! I love the wedges you paired with it too! Another cute but comfy mom win! Also, as far as Spring is concerned, I don’t think I can pick just one style but denim has been my go to but it’s been feeling increasingly agitating as it gets warmer!

    This dress is so gorgeous. I love the ruffles , it’s one of my favorite trends this season. The black and white stripes make it even more unique and fun. I agree with you, maxi dresses are great for any occasion depending on how you styled them. You look great!

    This dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you! It’s definitely a very feminine and girly style. And the ruffles make it even better. Absolutely classy piece for a spring-summer season.
    I’m personally a big fan of dresses, but it’s such a struggle to wear dresses in Berlin, because the weather here is so cold…

    As always, beautiful. The tiered maxi is super flattering but also casual which is nice. I also love that you added wedges to elongate your silouette and complete the look. My phone cases need to have a card holder inside as well because there are many times I run out without my purse, the wallet/phone cases are the way to go!
    Hope you have a lovely week

    I am loving this look head to toe :) and your tiered maxi dress is so pretty. I personally love wearing stripes pieces; so I find this dress so different and unique. Most maxidresses can be so overpowering on petite frames like ours. But I really love that this silhouette works well. And your wedges are such a fun touch to the look. Also you have the coolest phone case, I need one for myself :).

    I seriously love this look. I have been obsessed with stripes all my life and I can’t wait for the weather here in Vancouver to warm up so I can also wear my favourite maxi dresses. I am also petite and you are right finding the right dress can be a challenge but you did find the right one :)
    You look beautiful!

    That dress is adorable – I’m totally obsessing over ruffles right now! I think maxis are perfect when you’re petite because they can help elongate your body – but like anything it’s all about finding the right fit. And how cute are your sandals and phone case?! So cute!

  16. May 2, 2017 / 6:07 pm

    Love your dress! It’s so pretty, the cut is fabulous and totally figure flattering. What a great choice because if you are petite this dress makes you look taller and slimmer. It’s the perfect piece to play with the optical illusion of height and dimension. I agree with you it’s a great piece to wear during Spring and even Summer!

    Have a nice weekend!

    HA! I have the same dress and wore it on my vacation to Mexico. When I saw the stripes and ruffles I had to have it. Love it on you too. The best part was this dress came in a petite size so for girls like us it fit perfectly. Love how you styled it with the wedge and your phone case is adorable too. Happy Spring luv! xo shalini http://www.styledevotee.com

    I love spring for wonderful season for a chance to wear open shoulder pieces like tops or dresses. I am petite as well and usually try to wear shorter clothes to look taller. I believe this length of your dress is actually perfect!


  20. April 30, 2017 / 8:08 pm

    OMG! I’m so in love with this dress! I know it’s a maxi dress, but I usually opt for ones that touch the floor. Haha. They become way too formal to wear and I always have to find a belt to cinch in the waist. However, the ruffle detail on this dress is so perfect. The striped pattern definitely makes it a bit more casual and wearable on a day to day basis.

    My favorite style is still the off the shoulder top. It’s just so classic. :)

    What a beautiful black and white maxi dress! I love the ruffles that is added for a more flirty fun look. I agree, those wedge sandals are so comfy, I have a pair in taupe and I too love a pair of high heels without giving up comfort. That iphone case is so darling, I have never seen one like this before and I’ll def have to check it out.

    Such a darling striped maxi dress. I think that the tiers are beautifully placed so that the fabric isn’t overpowering. I am petite too so I totally understand what you mean about it being harder for us shorter gals to pull off maxi dresses but this one is incredible! Love the wedges with it too and that adorable phone case is too cute! Perfect spring look! xoxo, Christine

    My go-to are also maxi dresses babe!
    But I agree, they are tricky when you’re short, but this one is so cute and looks great on you. Love how it looks with the espadrille wedges and your arm candy is fab!
    Also, that phone case is the cutest. Loving all your photos babe!
