Outfit of the Week ~ Maxi Dress

OOTD Maxi Dress 1

I got to spend some time in Florida recently which meant doing some shopping and wearing new light summer clothes! I won’t be able to wear them at home for a month or so, but just knowing they’re waiting for me when the weather warms up gives me that summery feeling.

OOTD Maxi Dress 2Nothing comes close to the perfect ease of a Maxi dress on a summer day! Maxi dresses have been on the scene in California and other tropical locales for years, but they’re just making it to New England. We only have a short window to wear them, so get yours now so it’ll be ready to throw on the first nice day.

I bought this one from the bp department at Nordstrom.

I have a long torso, so I’m loving how the slightly blousy top makes my torso appear shorter while the higher elastic waist makes my legs look longer. The tribal pattern in a soft gray palette makes this the perfect mix of loud and soft. I wore this for a day of shopping on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, and out to a nice restaurant on the water for dinner with a small leather jacket for after the sun went down.
