I think maxi dresses were made for the summer weather. I can’t think of a more comfortable thing to wear when its hot and humid outside. You can dress a maxi dress up or down very easily, they are usually pretty affordable and I have a nice variety of colors. I usually don’t pay anymore than $30 on a maxi dress. I prefer the jersey material because it has a little stretch and it doesn’t cost a whole lot.
The jersey material is practical for everyday wear. When I found this dress I immediately fell in love with the color, then I fell in love with the white trimming. During the day I’ll throw on some sandals, I also like maxi dresses with sneakers, basic skippies.
I’ve been trying bold lip colors, this one is called Va Va Violet by Revlon at my local Walgreens. The color is royal, rich, and bold. I think royal blue and purple shades compliment each other very well.
I also tried smaller bantu knots in my hair, I’m not sure that I love the smaller curls, they didn’t come out as defined as I wanted them to because it was so hot and humid the day I took the photos. I’ll try a different technique next time. What summer styles are you looking forward to? Anywhoo…I’m swamped at work this week, can’t wait for a mini vacation.
