Maxi dresses have become such a normal, every-day item that I have to confess, I haven’t actually tried one on in quite a while. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that they’ve never been universally flattering on me. I typically have a hard time balancing the billowy cut with my petite frame! (To give you a visual, picture me walking down the street in a floor length trash bag…*monkey covers eyes emoji*)
So when I walked past this ice blue beauty, it wasn’t the length that caught my eye. It was the color. Have you ever seen a prettier shade? It was such a fresh surprise that before I knew it I was rushing to the fitting room to try it on. That’s when it got even better – not only was the color gorgeous, but the tulip hem was instantaneously lengthening.
The final kicker? The $42 price tag, which gets you three dresses in one… Wear it with heels and a clutch for a wedding, wedges and a fun necklace (this one) for dinner with friends, and gold sandals (just bought these!) and a tote for a hot summer day.
So… ladies and gents… well probably just ladies actually… meet my maxi obsession for this summer. Already looking forward to packing it up for Seaside, Florida later this month!

I couldn’t be more excited to team up with TAudrey to give away my favorite pair of summer earrings – these gorgeous turquoise and gold dangles! You’ve been hearing of my love for the pretty little things ever since I announced my TAudrey collaboration, and I’m so thrilled to have seen pictures from the many of you who bought a pair for yourself! For your chance at winning a pair, keep an eye on my Instagram today. I’ll be posting a photo with all of the instructions! In the meantime, you can get your turquoise fox of them here. Good luck, everyone! :)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! For the first time in what feels like forever, I’ll actually be home and not on the road! So you can bet Netflix (binge watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt right now) and late mornings are in order. After pulling an all nighter last night in preparation for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (if you missed it, my guide is here), sleep is the main thing I’m excited about! :) What about you? Any fun plans?
P.S. I came across these while browsing earlier today and am in LOVE. For some reason, I’ve been so drawn to fun, funky statement shoes lately. What do you think? Do you love ’em? Do you think they’re heinous and wonder if I’ve lost my mind? That’s fair, too. I wanna know!
