Maxi Madness

When the weather is gorgeous outside, it's just too easy to not throw on a beautiful maxi and call it a day! It's the quickest way to get ready!

I picked up this beautiful maxi dress last summer and it instantly became a staple in my wardrobe. It was one of those pieces that I really had to stop and think "okay, who did I see the last time I wore this?" to avoid looking like the girl who only wears one dress. But honestly, it's so beautiful, it's worth all of the risk!
I love when a piece has unexpected details, and this dress is full of them. I love the way the top flows and then there is a cinch at my stomach. For us shorties (under 5' 5"), maxi dresses are a great way to elongate our frame, but it really helps if they are form fitted or have a cinched waist. It brings it all in and helps to slim your body as well! The slits on this dress are just beautiful. When the wind blows, the dress really just speaks for itself.
