Summer Nights


The best part of summer nights, for me at least, is the ease of getting dressed when going out. We went to a father’s day cook-out last night and I wanted to be comfortable but still cute. Drapey maxi-dress that feels like pajamas? Done. I probably could have added more jewelry to jazz it up a bit but when could I not add more jewelry right? It’s a delicate and constant balance between comfortable and fancy.

    Maxi skirts are seriously comfortable! Its like cuddling in a blanket all day long but it doesn't look as ridiculous as wearing a snuggie-in fact they actually look really good!

    Maxi dresses are the perfect casual or dressy outfit. I'm 9 months pregnant and they are a great choice because you don't need to get maternity maxi dresses, regular ones fit fine.

  47. Does that maxi-dress have a collar? Maybe more like a shawl collar but still, I love how this one is kind-of covered-up. I feel like so many maxis show a lot of skin and I really love the style of the one you have!
