I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like summer here in Indiana. It has been a cool summer, and we haven't started having those face-melts-after-two-seconds-outside days until recently. I personally love those days, especially when I'm enjoying them on the back of a boat cruising around the lake. However, when I'm hanging around the city it can be hard to keep cool.
Rule number one is don't even bother trying to curl your hair. Straighten it, pull it up, braid it, do whatever you have to do to keep from the sadness of ruining your 'do in like eight seconds. Rule number two? Maxi dresses! It's the perfect way for me to feel dressed up without wearing too much. These dressed will also transition perfectly to fall when I layer a chambray button up or cable knit sweater on top.
I bought this dress (on supa sale!) while shopping with a girlfriend who was looking for maternity wear and she was drawn to all the maxi dresses as well because of how comfy and accommodating they are to a growing belly. I'm not pregnant and don't plan to be, so I guess my maxis will just help hide my food baby after enjoying BBQ at my most favorite place in town (same thing right?)!
