Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend despite everything going on.  I’m adjusting to a work from home lifestyle mixed with an evenings at home lifestyle.  My apartment has never been cleaner, lol.  Steve and I broke into my game collection this weekend and played a few rounds of Scattegories on Saturday followed by a minor binge watching of Tiger King on Netflix.  We only intended to watch a couple episodes, but this show ya’ll is crazy! Right when you thing you know everything another curve ball is thrown.  If you are looking for something to watch, I highly recommend!

Flowy maxi dresses are great for summer! They are perfect for beach vacations because they can work as both a swimsuit coverup and dinner dress.  I will also toss mine on before heading to a pool party or just to run errands or grab brunch on a hot day.  This one is also perfect for a day at home when you want to fill dressed up but still comfy.

You can easily make these summer maxi dresses work for spring too with two simple add ons.  First option, belt the waist.  This works for summer too.  It helps define your waist and can change up the look of the dress.  I place the belt a couple inches above my belly button to add the look of length to my petite frame and create a more slimming look.  Second option, add on a denim jacket.  A great option for cooler days!  You can roll up the sleeves to about a 3/4 length for a daytime look.  A denim jacket can both dress up or dress down a dress. I love the versatility of it.  For a spaghetti strap dress, it can make your outfit more work friendly.  If your maxi feels dressier, a denim jacket can give it a more casual brunch time look.

A few simple adds and your maxi dress is quickly transformed into a whole new look!

    Oh, you were watching Tiger King too? OMG, that was crazyyyyy. No fiction writer couldn’t come up with something like this. And back to your look, you look lovely. The floral pattern dress and jeans jacket is a perfect combo. Thank you for sharing this post with My Red Carpet.

  4. I love denim jackets paired with dresses! This looks so great and what a lovely shade of blue. This is the second time today that Tiger King was brought to my attention. I have never even heard of it until today, but I guess it’s a sign that I should check it out. Thanks for sharing and linking up.


  5. That’s a beautiful maxi dress. Like how you styled it with the jeans jacket. So chic. Thanks for linking to the Top of the World Style party. At least we can still party online. Stay safe.

    I need to start wearing my dresses on the weekend while it is still cool enough to pair them with my denim jackets. I love this floral one.
