Marvelous Maxis

Today is the first day of May (Happy May Day) and that means summer is almost here. Temperatures are getting higher, the sun is shining brighter, and the stores are full of amazing warm weather fashions. Once again, the Maxi is ruling the dress selections. Sexy, free-flowing, comfortable, and multi-functional, these dresses are the perfect staple for summer fun. The Maxi will take you to the beach, dinner, and everything in between. Here are some wonderful options in various price ranges. I know there’s one for you!

These are three of my favorites, especially the orange one. This is what I think a maxi should be-great colors, flowing bodies, and super summery.

Both of these could be worn to work.

I always thought I was too short to wear a maxi, but there’s nothing a good tailor can’t do. A little hemming and I have a fabulous go-to dress for everything summer throws at me.
