One of summer's most essential fashion pieces has to be the maxi dress. They are the easiest thing to throw on on a hot day & always give you the effortless chic vibe.
So that was my go-to outfit for my outing to the Shawn & Ed Brewing Company last month, which you can read all about here.
The best thing about maxi dresses is there is one for everyone, and no matter what height or shape you are, you will look and feel amazing. This is one that I recently (read: June aha) got from my grade partner as she never really got around to wearing it and thought that I would get some good use out of it. I also got a second one from her that is super comfortable as well.
I quite like this one as it has an overlay on the chest all the way round which helps to give it some shape on my body. The colour is also a great one for the warmer weather as I find teal/mint help to show off a tan well. The shoes I scored for $12 (!!!) at a Giant Tiger, so of course I had to grab them. They are a size smaller than I usually wear but fit comfortably so I knew it was a sign that I must get them. I think that they would work well at work to spice up my usual flats as I quite like the ankle wrapping detail and the eyelets. The colour of them being so neutral will also make them a flexible footwear option continuing into autumn.
It was nice having a photographer friend at the tasting so that he could grab some photos of Scott and I, as well as my friend Boston.
What are your thoughts on maxi dresses? Are you a huge fan of them like me, and own half a dozen (or more)? I'd also love to know where you find them and if you have a favourite brand. Most of mine are from Old Navy because, as you'll know if you've been a long time reader, I worked there for many years through high school and university. I sometimes have difficulty finding a maxi that isn't too long on my short frame, but I find ways to make it work!
