Hey hey and happy Sunday everybody! I hope you’ve all had an absolutely fantastic weekend. Charlie and I have been wrapping up a beach trip with my side of the family this weekend and it’s been tons of fun. The best part? Today we’re headed from the beach with my side of the family to the beach with Charlie’s side of the family! It really doesn’t get much better than two weeks straight at the beach with family. I love when our summers allow for so much family time. And it’s extra great this year because it’s giving us some pause on all of the moving madness.
This navy maxi dress was a tiny bit of a splurge for me. But it’s a classic, timeless staple that will last for years so it’s honestly somewhat of an investment piece. Maxi dresses are a summer staple because, if styled well, they can carry you from spring all the way into fall. This particular dress is a shirt dress which is an absolute classic. The belted waist makes it flattering on any body shape. And the large ruffle hem gives the dress just a bit of flare and trend.
I wanted to keep the dress simple and easy breezy for summer so I styled it with a pair of flat white sandals and a straw crossbody bag. But I also wanted to give it a bit of current taste so I added a sleek, low bun (a practical hairstyle for hot summer days), metal framed sunglasses, thick gold hoops, and a gold necklace. It’s simple and classic but it’s still stylish.
Do you have a navy maxi dress? It really is a great staple item for any woman of any shape, size, or style preference to have in her closet because it’s endlessly versatile! I love sharing items like this with you guys because I feel like they’re items that are actually practical for us everyday ladies to own. I hope you enjoy outfits like this too! Thanks so much for reading today! Hope you have a wonderful week.
