Maxi dresses and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re a no brainer for a quick, easy outfit and something I almost always include in my summertime suitcase. When I saw all this color, print and pattern rolled into one dress I’m sure you can imagine my excitement! I found this while hunting for stylish bachelorette party appropriate pieces at Marshall’s to wear in Miami earlier this spring. I didn’t really need a daytime dress, but there was no way I was leaving the store without it!
I ended up not wearing it in Miami so I planned to wear it for brunch the day after our wedding. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold in Charleston I ended up in San Francisco “summer” attire which you may have seen here. Following our wedding Mr. T and I took a few days to relax in Hilton Head and stopped back through home to see my family for one more night. The weather was FINALLY cooperating so I broke out this chic maxi number while strolling the neighborhood.
There’s an ease to summer outfits because most of us would rather be out enjoying the warm weather and beautiful surroundings. Maxi dresses are great for that; dress them up or down with a simple change of accessories. Are you a maxi fan too? Some gals shy away depending on the fabric, shape or coloring, which they may find too clingy or revealing. I recommend prints and patterns because they help distract the eye, though I can easily get onboard with solids and stripes. They’re are options for more coverage up top if you need it or various lengths depending on height. Maybe I like them too much?! Pish posh; no such thing! I say go forth and find your perfect maxi mix!
