Summertime Maxi

Maxi dresses are the perfect transitional piece between the spring and summer months.  What's more fun than an LBD combined with bright colors and fun patterns?!  This Express dress is a closet staple- and they have dozens of dress styles in mini, midi, and maxi lengths online.  Dresses are my go-to outfit because they are effortless and comfortable to wear, but still look fabulous!  Pair a chic dress with simple, strappy sandals, and your outfit is almost complete!

Since a maxi dress is the central piece of an outfit, it's important to keep accessories simple.  While my necklace is delicate, its gold shine and unique layers allow this piece of jewelry to make a subtle statement.  I love to wear gold jewelry with black clothing- it creates such a classy look! The white keyhole sunnies from Nordstrom B.P. are a cool contrast to the bright colors of the dress.  

And of course, a purse is a necessity to any good outfit.  I had been looking for a simple black crossbody for a while, until Nordstrom gifted me the perfect bag!  This purse goes with every outfit and it's also extremely practical- there are three separate areas for storage inside!  It is the perfect size to carry a wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick.  A black purse is definitely worth the investment, as it is timeless and goes with anything.

Will a maxi dress make it on your list of must-haves for summer?
