The other day, I was getting ready to go to a lavender festival at a local winery. After looking through my closet (and knowing that it was going to be a hot day spent out in the sun), I opted to wear one of my maxi dresses (black, of course). When I came downstairs wearing one of my favorite maxi dresses, my mother-in-law who was attending the event with me noted, “You said it was going to be a casual event!” I said, “Yes, I did say that. But, I wear this dress like every day.” True story. In other words, I don’t think of the maxi dress as anything but casual.
When it comes to hot summer days, you will most likely find me wearing a maxi dress. In fact, I’m wearing one right now. And I wore one yesterday … and the day before. Take a peek in my closet and you’ll see a variety of maxi dresses that I love to toss on and wear throughout the day. Why? They are comfortable, forgiving, cute, and perfect for warm weather.
From open shoulders to cute straps, shorter versions to longer lengths, there are plenty of options to go perfectly with any kind of summer day. You can find maxi dresses that are free and flowing while other maxi dresses are tighter and slim fitting. I love them all.
Add some bracelets or a simple necklace to dress up the look a bit. And, if the summer evening gets a little on the chilly side, toss on a jean jacket for an easy summer look that is comfortable. As for me, I like to throw on a dress, slip into a pair of sandals, and head out the door. Easy peasy.
