Guest Post: Catie's Corner: Frivolous Fashion Friday

Fridays are great for a number of reasons, but one of my favorites is Frivolous Fashion Fridays over at Catie's Corner. Catie has quite the talent at created amazing outfit sets, and I was super excited when we decided to do a post swap. She's a Cali girl living in Canada and she's got a great eye! Plus, her name is Catie (clearly K/Catie is synonymous with "great taste"). So continue reading for Catie's awesome selection of maxi dresses and then hop on over to see my take on the python print fad over at her blog! Here's a sneak peek at what I'm wearing over there!


Hi There, I'm Catie and you can usually find me over at Catie's Corner. My blog is a place for diy's, cooking, decorating and fashion. I do a weekly fashion post - Frivolous Fashion Friday. It's a lot of fun! Each week I feature 12 outfits, most of the time there's a theme, but not always. Some of the outfits I pin on Pinterest and others I create on Polyvore. The whole point of the posts is to help all of us get inspired to "dress up" more often. Just because some of us are moms who spend a lot of time at home, doesn't mean we have to look humdrum everyday. There's definitely the days that call for yoga pants and t-shirts, but don't get stuck in the mom uniform rut! You're still a woman, embrace it! Have fun with fashion! 
This week I thought it would be fun to feature the "it" dress of the summer - the maxi dress.

Are you in love with the maxi dress yet? Do you have a favorite? I should come clean, I don't even own one! But I will be changing that very soon. Wearing one, would be like wearing a stylish nightgown all day. Does it get much comfier than that? I don't think so.  =) A big thank you to Katie for letting me take over her blog today! I really hope you found some summertime inspiration. I'd love for you to pop by my blog and say hi. Maybe even join me next week for the newest edition of Frivolous Fashion Friday.
Have a fabulous weekend!


What did I tell you!?!?! Is Catie awesome or what? My favorites and four and nine. What about you? Be sure to show Catie some love and have an awesome Memorial Day weekend (my American readers)! I'll be back Tuesday :)

Catie! I thank you so much for doing this guest post. I wish I could just click on your sets and just magically buy them. You have such a great eye!

Hi! Just coming over to visit Catie at your place and tell you how much fun I had reading your blog swap posts. :-) I am making it my mission to find just the right maxi dress this summer and I absolutely love the one in the last pic. I even have a belt just like that! Love your blog and following you now!

This was soo much fun Katie! Thanks for having me. =) We'll definitely have to do this again sometime.

Enjoy your first weekend of the summer! I'm going camping (RV) with my daughter, stepdaughter and her mom. Should be great! : )

Love the snake print! AND the maxi dresses!!!! Maxi dressed have been my go-to summer wardrobe for about 3 years. I'm with you...I am obsessed with number 9. Recently at work, they tried to make it against the dress code to wear maxi dresses because they're a "trip hazard". The women all protested and we are still allowed to wear them! :) speaking of work, on Fridays we have to wear jeans and a work related tshirt. I hate this because the other 4 days during the week I get to be cute, creative, and fashionable. Maybe you should try a post on how to make the boring jeans and tshirt into something a bit more fashionable with accessories or something! Have a gear memorial day weekend!!

So cute! I have two pretty maxi dresses that I don't wear enough, but this reminds me that summer is the perfect time to break them out. :)

I love all of these maxis! Sometimes it's really hard for me to find one that fits properly for me. They either end too short, or they just look awkward on me. These combos are so great though!

Thanks so much, Vanessa! Catie's got so many great choices, I don't even know where to start :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I hope you have a great weekend too (and I want all these dresses as well)!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Haven't I already demanded that you get a maxi dress, Sharon?! What are you waiting on! ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Summer is definitely the time for maxi dresses, and it's great for those days when you don't have time to shave ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I agree! Catie did a great job :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

That's a tough one. I am envious of your height though. Have you checked Old Navy online, they have tall sizes in many of their outfit choices!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Catie spends a ton of time on these outfits- such artwork! I really wish I could push a button and buy everything in the collection!

The Curvy Girl said...

Love all of these!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Me too! I wish they were all in my closet right now!
