summer staple: the printed maxi

You guys know how much I love dresses. Maxis specifically have won me over lately. Like any dress you only have to think about putting on one thing in the morning and unlike other dresses you don't have to worry about the dreaded short-skirt-flying-up situation. They also transition well between casual and formal affairs. For example this fabric is nice enough that I could wear it to a wedding (maybe with fancier shoes), and because of the colors I think it will work into fall with a leather jacket and some boots. And let's not forget the best part of a big loose dress...freedom to eat, gain a few lbs, or even hide a bump (not what we are doing here, hi mom!) with ease. 

One of my favorite tips? Maxi dresses are also perfect for airplanes. You look completely put together, but for all intents and purposes you're wearing pajamas. Win-win. 

Here are a few more maxis I love...
