Maxi dresses and skirts are one of my favourite things to wear on the weekends because they are so comfortable! Plus, they are easy to dress up and dress down! If you haven’t already looked at my maxi skirt post, have a read now! Maxi dresses come in all kinds of colours and patterns, and I have been building my collection for the past couple of years. However, one I picked up on sale at Old Navy this past season, has now become one of my favourite summer maxis to wear! Unfortunately, this exact one is not available anymore, but Old Navy did just come out with some new maxi prints that are to-die-for (linked below)!!
I styled this look last weekend as I ran errands for my sister’s graduation party! It is so fun and cute, and simple to throw on, that it was perfect for running around town. What I love about this dress is that it has a high-low cut going on. It is lower in the back, than it is at the front, and that actually comes in handy for me, being the short gal that I am!
Because it was a little chilly that day (the sun didn’t seem to want to come out!!), I paired the dress with a chambray that I picked up from Target, when it was still open in Canada. You can pick up chambray shirts, really, anywhere…but I have linked some cute ones below! The chambray really ties into the blue polka dots, and having that extra layer was much needed with the wind and sprinkling rain blowing around.
I like to pair different colours together, so I wanted to pair this ensemble with a statement piece that really popped! That’s why I picked this funky and chunky mark. by Avon necklace. I got this necklace about two years ago, but mark. by Avon regularly has great statement pieces like the one I am wearing in this look.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a close-up of the shoes that I chose to wear with this outfit (I was getting photos taken before we got poured on). The shoes that I chose to pair with this look (you can kind of see them in the first photo) were also from Avon. They are a pretty coral colour, with a metal feature around the open toe. They are so cute and comfortable, that I have them in coral and aqua!! Perfect for summer!!
On a side note, this braid that I did was something I completely made up on the spot. I am not the best at doing hair, but when it comes to braiding, I am intrigued at all the things you can do! In a desperate need to disguise my third-day hair (don’t judge me..), I quickly threw together this braid. I couldn’t tell you how to do it, even if I tried, but somehow, the above look came out!!
