Weekend Ready

As summer quickly approaches - wait... how is it already May 8th? - you'll notice that your weekend events will begin to pile up. Now... what to wear? I love turning to maxi dresses for summer events because they are a simple "instant outfit." You don't have to spend a lot of time fussing over putting different pieces together - the dress does all of the work!

Don't be afraid of prints when it comes to maxi dresses! Any one can wear black and white - and Lord knows I do - but have some fun this season with beautiful prints. 
I love the fit of this dress from Linsey Layne Boutique because it's so feminine with the ruffles, but still cinches at the waist. Girls often tell me they can't wear a maxi dress because they are too short, but that's just not true - it's just about finding one that fits your body. For me, the dress needs to cinch to define my waist otherwise I end up looking heavier overall. If the dress is a little long, just throw on a pair of wedges or get it hemmed!
Happy Friday all! I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
