Summer Style: Maxi Dress + A Straw Hat

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. We made a quick trip to my hometown in Wisconsin. It was so nice to get away to the northwoods for a couple of days. (And even though I got hit with a double bout of mastitis (SO painful!) and felt like I had the flu, it was better than getting sick at home. Nothing like having my mom there to take care of me!)

I love the weather this time of year. It’s not scorching hot yet. The days are perfect and the nights are cool. Over the weekend there was rain in the forecast every day, but we didn’t see a single drop. 

OK…are you looking for a maxi dress you can LIVE in all summer long? This is the one. With a drawstring waist and super soft jersey material, it’s so cozy and comfy and just perfect for those carefree summer days. And it comes in other colors!

(Head to the bottom of the post for the cutest black maxi dresses at all price points!)

Style tip: if you’re not tall and it seems most maxi dresses are too long: tie a knot in the bottom. Make sure it’s on the side and not in the front. It’ll take up the hemline and also create a cool asymmetrical look.

And remember when I warned you that you’d be seeing this denim jacket on here nonstop? True to my word, you guys. AND, it’s less than $37. Highway robbery. 

Oh, and my straw hat because: SUMMER. 

Alright, time for all of the coffee. Thanks for stopping by!
