Summer Style- Off-the-shoulder Maxi

Red Maxi Dress

Hello, beautiful! Let’s get real. I LOVE fashion but I am practical. I’m a busy mom and my priority is my twins. My focus is on them so I don’t have much “getting ready” time. I need my overall look to be as easy as possible, without sacrificing style. This embroidered Alice + Olivia maxi dress ticks all the right boxes. First of all, the maxi dress is a wardrobe staple I simply adore (as seen here & here). Made from cotton, this flowy version is comfortable, easy to move in, and perfect for the summer heat. The subtle details include intricate embroidery, an exposed back zipper, and off-shoulder silhouette. A little boho and a little chic, this dress can go from day to night with ease. I kept my overall look simple here by pairing the dress with strappy summer sandals and a panama hat. Light makeup and a simple twist of my hair (secured with my cherry blossom’s hair accessory from our travels to Japan) finished the look. This multitasking maxi is the perfect piece to pack for your summer getaway, just as I did for a recent weekend vacation to Miami.

What are some of your looks that are both functional and fashionable? Please share, I’d love to know.
