Hi dolls!

I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend. There's something about opening up a fresh blog page that just feels so therapeutic to me! I absolutely love writing on Ashley's Passion for Fashion and bringing to y'all cute, affordable fashion that the every day girl can wear. 

If y'all follow me on Instagram (which it would make my day if you would, click HERE to follow me!), I discussed my photo shoot I had last Monday with the oh so talented Savannah Seals (check out more of her work here) for a local store here in Chattanooga called Studio 6. It is seriously SUCH a cute boutique store with so many trendy yet affordable pieces. I wanted to share one of my favorite looks I wore during our shoot that is the perfect dress for a summer date night or girl's night out! 

I am convinced that every girl can wear a maxi dress! I love that it gives such a put together, glam look yet it's SO easy. Literally, one piece of clothing and you're good to go for the day (or night)! I LOVE the print on this dress! Paisley is so southern and classy. I also love the contrast of the dark navy dress with the light paisley print. It really makes the print pop! Not to mention that it's off-the-shoulder: one of my absolute favorite styles for a dress or top.

No matter your height, don't be intimidated by a maxi dress. I have to admit I am rather short (5'3") and sometimes maxis can be a bit long on me. However, do not fear, there are always solutions for the short girl (trust me, I've got this whole short girl fashion thing figured out lol): 1) pair your maxi with wedges (as I did in this outfit above), 2) take it to a seamstress for it to be hemmed (or sew it yourself if you're able), or 3) knot the hem on one side (works best for maxis that have a slit). Speaking of slit....another reason I absolutely loved wearing this dress! I joked with the photographer that I felt like Angelina in this dress...who else remembers her famous pose in that long black dress with the slit on the Red Carpet a few years ago!? #goals 😉

Anyone else love a maxi dress as much as I do? Leave me a comment so we can bond over our maxi love! 

Thanks so much for reading; I appreciate each and every one of you as always.
