Thank goodness for maxi dresses, especially during the summertime. I’ve always stayed away from the longer length and looser fit because of my shorter frame (I’m only 5’1″ — the 1″ means a lot guys! 😉 ), but they’ve really become such a summer staple for me.  The last leg of summer in Phoenix is always rough. Somehow we always forget what these temps are like and then August rolls around full of humidity hitting us smack-dab in the face. Flowy clothes are a saving grace…in comes the maxi. They’re great for running errands with flats and a tote, or dressing up later in the evening with some strappy sandals and big hat. Here are a few of my favorites below:


Patterned, solid, casual, fancy. Loose and airy options to stay cool no matter what the occasion
may be.

Dress up or dress down your maxi with flat sandals, comfy slip-ons, or strappy heels.

Straw handbags for summer walks, leather totes for afternoon errands, or a little clutch for a special date night.

Add a hat, shades, and a few bangles to complete the look.
