How to Wear… End of Summer Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses might just seriously be one of the best fashion inventions. I mean, they are practically pajamas you can wear in public, amIright?? Who doesn’t love being completely comfortable ALL.DAY.LONG!

And now that the weather is entering that cold in the morning/scorching hot in the afternoon thing, this dress is totally my go to. It’s perfect on it’s own, but I absolutely love the option of throwing on a button-down shirt and tying it up. Completely changes the look and keeps the evening chill away.

Styling Tips: Want to make this look feel more Fall appropriate? Swap the colorful button down for a chambray one and add ankle boots!

    haha – I seriously just said almost the exact same thing to my husband. I said having a maxi dress is like having a built in blanket. Your outfit is like the last summer hurrah – is it freaking fall yet?!?

    Haha! That is SO true. Definitely like a built in blanket. I’m right there with you on Fall. Where the hell is it???!! I just want to wear leather!

    I completely agree with your maxi decree! :)

    And I love the tied-shirt look. I feel silly when I do it, but you look the opposite of silly. Which is always a plus.

    Tied shirts don’t usually work for me with shorts but there’s something about tying them over a dress that just seems to work for me. maybe better proportions!

    Love the blue on blue! And the tip for fall. Such a cute look and the pop of color with the purse is great! I have a similar looking bag from Target (maybe the same) and wear it with everything because it makes me happy! And your look does too because these colors are fab!

    Summer is long gone for me but I still occasionally try to rock my maxis as long skirts with boots lol. Love how this outfit is styled.
