Leapin' lizards, it is HOT outside! Cue my favorite summer staple: the maxi dress. They feel like pajamas, can catch a breeze, are comfortable, and look cute – why would you NOT love them?!
Maurices sent over a fun box filled with summer goodness:
I took the summer inspiration and ran with it:
Maxi Dress in Chevron Print c/o Maurices (save 20% with code at the end of this post)
Bag, Alice + Olivia (old)
Shoes, Lane Bryant (old)
Cuff, IGIGI (old)
Sunnies, Tory Burch (old)
Earrings, Baublebar (old)
Maxi dresses can be dressed up or down with accessories (and you know I love my accessories!) I went for a little more shine with some gold jewelry and a bag as equally bright as the print on the dress.
Sizing notes: I'm 5'10 and wearing the 3 in the chevron print, and the 4 in the medallion print (below). These are both generously cut in the waist and hips, so I'd focus on bust measurement when choosing a size.

Zip pocket faux leather satchel c/o Maurices
Wedges, Fitzwell by Zappos (old)
Necklace, ABS by Allen Schwartz (old)
Bracelet, Charming Charlies (old)
Love the fun back detail that was also bra strap friendly.
Denim is a great layering piece for maxi's. To transition into cooler weather, you could tie up a chambray shirt, add a denim vest, or go with a denim jacket.
