The Dress Chronicles Vol VI: Maxi Dresses

July 24, 2017

Hi everyone! I hope all had a great weekend. First of all, I want to apologize for being MIA these past two weeks. I was in DC for work all of one week and then spent the next week on vacation with friends on an island with very little in the way of cell service or wifi. It was probably the best thing that could have happened. No one was checking their phones. We spent our time enjoying each other and our surroundings. But now I am back home in the south, and ready to get back to blogging! Today I have another installment in “The Dress Chronicles” for you. Let’s talk about maxi dresses. I was skeptical when they first started making an appearance. I didn’t want to look like I was wearing my nightgown out in public. After wearing one on a hot summer day, I was sold.

My favorite way to style a maxi dress is with a clutch, wedges and statement earrings.


Maxi dresses are an easy outfit for the summer. They can cover your lily white legs if you don’t have a tan (raises hand), and also give you an amazing amount of movement and comfort. Whenever I wear a maxi, I always feel like I should be walking off of a ship in some tropical destination. A simple outfit formula of maxi, wedges, clutch and statement earrings is my go to look for when I want to add a little “umph” to my look without loosing that laid back summer look. It’s casual, it’s fun, it isn’t hard to put together yet it still looks like you made an effort. Isn’t that what we all want in an outfit?

I have linked my favorite maxi dresses in the widget below.


Have a great day!
