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.

  1. I love a maxi dress. This one is so pretty. The colour is gorgeous. Loving the purse.



  2. Great dress! I'm a huge fan of maxi dresses too. What's better than looking cute and being comfy, all at the same time!


  3. Love the bag with the scarf tied to it! Pretty touch.

  4. Gorgeous! I love the deep blue; right in between indigo and navy. Especially pretty with your turquoise tote. Niiiiiiice.

  5. 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!

  6. I love the dress! Its so hard to find maxi dresses with sleeves. Please mention where the dress is from. Thanks!

  7. Such a cute look. I've only recently discovered maxi dresses for me but now I am irrevocably hooked. šŸ˜‰

    Wonderful and Marvelous

  8. 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.

  9. I love that dress!! Modest, comfy and perfect for a cookout too. I have yet to find the perfect maxi dress. I'm currently obsessed with making maxi skirts. So I think it's time to switch to dresses.

  10. This dress looks gorgeous on you! Even if you were wearing more jewelry I probably be too distracted by this dress's awesomeness to notice.

  11. I love navy and kelly green together. You always look so put together even if you're wearing something that is equal to pjs šŸ˜‰

  12. 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!

  13. Love, LOVE this dress! Wishing I could have the exact same… you're adorable šŸ™‚

    xo, Ainslee


  14. I love maxi dresses! Wear them all summer – lamenting the fact that it's winter down here in New Zealand so a lot more layering is required to wear a maxi atm – LOVE that bag too

  15. I love the deep Prussian blue (almost like midnight) maxi dress paired with the bright green tote, K! So pretty. I've been harbouring a sweet and secret love for maxi dresses and skirts since all of last year. Hope to wear some this 2013! { http://www.jupiterskye.com }

  16. I adore maxi dresses, but I have such a hard time finding ones with a good length for taller women.

  17. So I was like, OMG I love those sandals! I must have them! And then I realized that I already do. LOL. Needless to say, love those sandals, and totally agree- maxis are the best!

  18. Loving this maxi dress Kendi! I noticed your hair is getting super long- you're lucky it grows fast šŸ™‚ If you get a minute, Iā€™d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post!

  19. Oooh what a great dress! I love the wide shoulders and cut of the sleeves. So flattering and also covers your back and shoulders so as to ward off cool nights. I'm always reaching for a cardigan on summer evenings.

  20. I totally agree with everyone else that your dress is amazing! I realize it's not in bloom anymore, but what are the chances of you being able to get it in stock again? So I could buy it? Online? Or I'll drive the 20 hours to visit the shop! šŸ™‚ please?

  21. I'm trying to find this dress online….or one like it. I'm not finding a store or brand called "Similar." Can you help guide me to it?!?
