{GBF Life + Style} A Spring/Summer Dress Staple

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Maxi dresses have always been one of my spring/summer staples as they're effortless to style and never go out of fashion. They're also incredibly comfortable to wear as most maxis fit loosely around the midsection generously allowing for all kinds of waistline fluctuations. With graphic prints in heavy rotation in my spring wardrobe, I'm drawn to my Karen Kane Moroccan print dress as it's the perfect blend of comfort meets trendy. It's a statement making dress that's also versatile to wear. 

I wore my maxi dress on the first day of Coachella and accessorized it with festival friendly pieces like my straw fedora, oversized sunnies, and layers of jewelry. My studded buckle boots completes the casual and outdoor appropriate festival look.  However, I can switch gears and wear the dress to a law firm picnic or the American Bar Association bowling night by ditching the hat, pulling the hair back into a top bun, adding a shrunken blazer, and switching out the boots for wedge heels. Now that's getting the max out of my maxi dress!
