my outfit: for the love of max!

I never wear dresses... have you noticed!?!? Partly because I don't own many and partly because I just forget that I have them!  So when I do wear them, it's always a pleasant surprise on how simple and comfortable they are to wear.

I surprise even myself sometimes.  And I do always say I should own more... but I never seem to be in the mood to shop for them or buy them.

What are your best sources for simple and stylish dresses? What are your favorite cuts and styles? Do tell... maybe I can even snag a new one before fall.

For a fun take on the the classic maxi dress... I just tied the side of the dress to shorten the hem a bit and add some texture to the dress as well.

Loving the cute knot at the fun! You look great!

Love the knot on the bottom! You look adorable pairing the scarf with the maxi too.

I love summer dresses and skirts. They are much more comfortable than shorts in my opinion. I like everything from maxi dresses to jersey knit dresses and frilly skirts.

I think the best dresses are always vintage ones. They're amazing. Maxi dresses are so comfortable though and I love how you've tied the knot. Very good idea.

You are rocking this maxi dress! I love the fun touches--the scarf, the bracelets, and the knotted bottom!

I love to buy summer dresses at Old Navy, because they're usually pretty well made and in bright cheery colors.

My current favorite dress is from H&M and it's light coral jersey with a crochet waistband...perfect with gladiator wedges and a beach bag!

Ah. I love how you put the scarf with this. I would never thought ot pair it with a maxi but I love it!

I really like some of the dresses from New York & Company. They're comfortable, cute, and flattering.
