A few weeks ago, I was shopping for an outfit for Bonaroo and totally got distracted by this gorgeous maxi dress. Obviously, it wasn’t right for the occasion, but I just couldn’t help myself and got it anyway. Maxi dresses are one of my favorite things to wear for occasions where you want to be a little bit more dressed up and feminine. They’re great for first dates, weddings, summer parties, and more!
My favorite thing about this particular maxi is the off-the-shoulder straps. Off-the-shoulder is super trendy right now, but I like these because they look more like straps that have fallen down as opposed to more structured off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, especially those with sleeves. The loose fitting makes it more flowy and free. As does the slit in the front. It’s not totally a wrap dress since it doesn’t have a tie waist, but it does give that wrap dress illusion in a very flattering way. I’ve found that this brand usually runs big, but this dress surprisingly fits true to size, which is great for little ole me!
I was worried at first that these huge flower earrings might be a bit much since they’re basically identical to the flowers on the dress, but I think it actually worked. They totally add to the outfit instead of taking away from it. I initially planned on wearing flats, but since the dress is pretty long, I went with these comfy summery heels. Finally, I added my little straw bucket bag and I was good to go! Isn’t this just the perfect summer outfit? Can’t wait to wear this dress again!
