Maxi Dresses: A Summer Essential

If I had to pick one go to look for summer, it would definitely be the maxi dress. I don't even know if I could count the number of maxi dresses that I currently have in my collection, but I can tell that they pretty much all come out to play in the summertime. There is something that is so darn easy about throwing on a maxi, a pair of sandals and little else but maybe a piece of statement jewelry. And that is why I keep on adding them to my closet. If you could see my hubs' face every time I bring home another one...Haha!


Now I know that some of you think you can't wear maxis...And I'm betting that you're not exactly on the tall side. Well, let me tell you something...I'm far from vertically blessed and I wear maxis all day long. The key is finding the right length and the right print. If you're after an elongating look, try a solid color, vertical stripe, even a diagonal stripe print. Now I don't always exactly follow those rules myself. I'm a bold print kinda girl, so I rock those more than on the regular...But I do try to stick with the right length which is means my maxi grazes the tops of my feet.

For this particular maxi centric ensemble, I chose a strapless print maxi dress that I picked up at Target and paired it with cream statement earrings from one of my favorite local boutiques. I'm a big fan of statement earrings in the summer simply because we are dealing with some seriously hot temps this time of year and swingy statement earrings don't weigh me down. That's what's so great about statement pieces. They make a big impact so you don't need to load up on other accessories!

Tell me...How do you fell about maxis lovelies? Are they an integral part of your summer wardrobe too?
