Tonight I’m talking about a few of my all time favorite things: cobalt blue, maxi dresses, and halter style necklines.
Ok so first. Obviously cobalt blue is a favorite (hockey), but this color is major this spring and summer and I love this pretty white floral print.
Furthermore, the maxi is like the spring and summer’s equivalent of the winter hoodie: you want to look your cutest without thinking too much about it. And you want to be cool and breezy. (And let’s be honest maybe wait another day to shave your legs. I can’t be the only one!)
Finally, the halter-style neckline is the most flattering for me personally. It elongates your arms for a feminine look. This dress is actually a typical spaghetti strap style but I had it altered to have the straps cross in the back so it became halter style! It’s all about finding what’s right for you.
This maxi is lined to just above the knee and sheer to the bottom, making it extra breezy. When I wore this dress it was 95 degrees in Tampa so you know it’s battle tested for the HEAT. Ugh, it’s only April…
I paired my blue maxi with this darling Steve Madden bag that I just cannot get enough of. I regularly plan looks around it and get compliments EVERYWHERE I go. It was a little bit of a splurge (as far as novelty clutches go at least) but the good news is there’s SO many fun and colorful options for spring and summer at all price points. But if you go with this blue one, you won’t be disappointed!
I was talking to a friend who says she “hates” maxi dresses and I was SO perplexed!? How can someone feel so strongly about something that’s essentially a fashion forward nightgown? Haha. I guess they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but you’ll see me in a lot of them this season. What do y’all think? Do you love a good maxi as much as me?
