To the Maxi

I love to wear dresses in the summer because in this hot and humid climate, loose and flowy wins over pants or shorts any day.  And maxi dresses are a nice way to mix up the length so I’m not wearing the same thing all the time.

This one in baby jersey by Velvet by Graham & Spencer ($152) is simple so throw on a stand-out accessory to complete the look.  This is where I would probably rock one of my cuff bracelets.

 

 

 

 

And here’s a footwear tip:  Though us shorties may feel overwhelmed by the length of a maxi and be tempted to wear heels, it is my opinion that heels and maxis just don’t mix well.  The idea here is simple and casual and heels seem like you’re trying too hard.  Stick with a flat sandal so the outfit stays in harmony.
