Welp, summer took its sweet ass time getting here but these past few weeks have proven she’s here to stay/slay. This past week has been the hottest yet with no plans of cooling down in the near future. While it is tempting to want to leave the house in a bathing suit in this heat, I find them to be less than practical in my day-to-day. Sun dresses are fun, but when I’m trying to stay cool but also want to look more polished, I turn to maxi and midi dresses for summer.
Maxi and midi dresses look fantastic on everyone. They’re simple to style and require minimal effort. These styles are easy to move in and are breathable. They can be worn to your cousin’s wedding, a friend’s birthday, the beach, to work, a picnic, etc… I love a long flowy dress in the summer—I immediately cool down while still feeling appropriately clothed for most situations.
