{GBF Life + Style} The Summer Statement Dress

Yes, I love fashion and getting dressed up and the whole shebang but I'm also a very lazy person. No, scratch that. I'm efficient. I'm perpetually seeking the shortest path to sartorial bliss. And that's why I love printed maxi dresses. They're effortless to wear but always eye-catching. In fact, they require very little supplementation in the way of accessories or layers. The dress is and remains the fashion centerpiece.

My designer maxi dress from T.J. Maxx is a shining example of printed perfection. The flower petal design of the ikat print is bold and distinct. The fine jersey fabric is slippery to the touch and rubs against the body like butter on pound cake. And unlike most maxi dresses, this one doesn't stretch for miles which means I get to wear it barefoot poolside all summer long. And the best part? The fit is loose but not flowy which makes it casual and dressy for day and night events. I can wear the dress directly from the pool to a summer cocktail party-preferably in Turks and Caicos.
