Canyon Mural

I've finally hopped on the bandwagon and joined the maxi dress trend. I found this dress at Target for a steal and figured it wouldn't hurt to try out the long length. Well, it's safe to say that I absolutely love this dress, and had fun wearing it while out running errands.

In Glenwood Springs they have this beautiful mural that just happens to match the color of my dress. I've always wanted to take photos in front of it, so I figured this would be the best time for that. The mural is in an alley way, but can be seen from the road if you drive by slowly and keep your eye out for it. It's a lovely piece of art hidden away for those who want to take a moment to truly appreciate it.

Since this dress is so long I decided a little bit of a heel was necessary in the shoes I would wear with it. I chose to wear my Casita sandals from Blowfish Shoes because they have a little big of a wedge, this way my dress wouldn't drag at all.

I have fun twirling around, having my dress move around in the wind. It was pretty windy this day, so it was nice not to have to fight with my dress to keep it down.

Needless to say, I am now a big fan of maxi dresses and will definitely be keeping my eye out for a few in basic colors. This fuchsia color is a bit different from my usual taste, but it is a fun dress, and perfect for a summer afternoon.
