When I think of summer dressing, the first thing that comes to mind is, "easy." Translation: "I don't want to think about it. But it's gotta be cute and comfortable." My favorite and possibly the easiest thing to wear this season is the maxi. I've worn it on vacation (perfect airport style), to school events, and on the weekends with my family. Definitely a summer mommy uniform. So effortless.
Get the Look: Such an amazing deal on this Planet Gold maxi dress and it's super flattering on all body types. Prints are great for camouflaging flaws and an elastic waistband does wonders to create shape as well as accentuate curves. I love a bare shoulder in the summertime, but there's also plenty of styles that offer more support. One way to draw the attention up top is by adding a statement or pendant necklace. There's a couple of options with shoes; chic nude wedges or if you want to experiment with color-shocking bright sandals. I'm adding a touch of boho with beaded and bright woven friendship bracelets. Have fun with it and stack 'em as high as you'd like. Bags with interesting details always grab my attention. There's a mix of easy and daytime glam with this Park Lane crossbody-love the woven leather. Finish with oversized sunnies and for extra protection from the sun, fabulous fedoras. All under $250!!!
Style Tip: Avoid over accessorizing. Too much can be too much. If you're doing large chandelier earrings, consider a delicate necklace or none at all. Add a statement ring or two-beyond that is just too much.
