The Versatile Maxi Dress

May 7, 2015
Maxi dresses truly are the best every day dress. On days (especially in Texas) when it’s hot and humid, I don’t want to wear anything that hugs the skin so flowy, maxi dresses are my go-to. Their versatility also makes them a wardrobe staple. Dress them up or down with a simple change of shoes and accessories. It really is that simple – swap out a casual tote and sandals for a chic clutch and high heel sandals and you’ve gone from casual to dressy in a matter of seconds. This is also ideal for vacations because you can get more use out of simplified suitcase wardrobe.   
This high-slit black maxi from Forever 21 has been a favorite of mine and I’ve worn it almost every weekend since purchasing. Quick walk with the dog? Throw this on with sandals. Going out for brunch? Add fun accessories – such as these gorgeous earrings from POSYfour. Fancy date night? Throw on some heels… you get the picture. If you don’t have a crepe-fabric maxi dress, you need one in your life for versatile weekend or vacation wear. Trust me.  

Dress: Forever 21 | Sandals: Target – old (similar here, also can’t stop wearing these!) | Earrings: Posy Four c/o | Clutch: American Apparel (craving this + this) | Lips: MAC Lipstick in Amorous
Happy almost Friday!

    I really adore maxi dresses, but always find that I'm way too short for them! I love this simple one and agree that pairing them with heels makes them more fun and fancy 🙂 I'm hoping to spend all summer in dresses 😉
