Save and Splurge Maxi Dresses

If I could only wear one piece of clothing for the rest of my life, the maxi dress would be my at the top of my list...Hands down! I just love them. They're ridiculously comfortable, can be dressed up or down with ease and hide a multitude of flaws. This mama is STILL working on her post baby bod and flowy maxis are super flattering. The hubs is probably sick of seeing them at this point. Haha! I've pretty much been wearing them for every season for years. I can't help it. Hi, my name is Kristin and I'm addicted to maxis!

I know you fellow height challenged girls of mine will say, I can't wear maxis because I'm not tall enough. Not true! I'm just shy of 5'5" and my maxi collection is large and in charge! The key is to make sure it's hemmed properly...and heels never hurt. I love to wear my maxis with wedges, but I have my fair share that I rock with flats too!

I have investment maxis and every day maxis, so I'm all for saving or splurging on my favorite type of dress! If you aren't quite sure if maxis are for you yet, dipping your feet in the save pool might be the way to go.

I've curated a few save/splurge pairs for you to choose from in some of my favorite hues of the moment. Cool, moody blues, juicy oranges and serene neutrals are all colors that are easy to style. In fact, they all would look fabulous paired with gold. Metallic sandals are definitely a must have for summer and will even take you on into fall until the cold weather hits!
