If I close my eyes and try to imagine my perfect summer dress – a floral maxi dress is what comes to mind! Don’t know what it is really, but floral maxis always make me feel pretty and feminine, so whenever I feel the urge to dress up, that’s what I normally go for! I wore the one below to a dinner date with my husband when we were in Las Vegas, and I am also taking it to wine country with me (mini trip we’re planning for this weekend) because it works just as well with cute espadrilles and a tote bag. But of course that’s what I like abut floral maxi dresses, they can be styled and restyled in every way imaginable! All you have to do is find a way you love to wear it the most.
To me, a floral maxi dress is the perfect dress for summer. Romantic and pretty, a like that a dress like this could be worn on different occasions. Dress it up with heels and a mini bag, or play it down with cute flats and a bamboo bag (how gorgeous is this one from my beloved Cult Gaia).
My favorite way of styling floral maxi dress is by pairing it with accessories of the moment – oversized buckle belts & mini bamboo bags. The particular one from Cult Gaia I am wearing in today’s post is definitely my go-to bag for everything at the moment. Easy to style and to wear, I love that wearing a slightly more casual bag with dressier pieces is a thing at the moment!
