I am a firm believer in having a 'uniform' of sorts. Especially in my current role as W/SAHM ( I mean, I do try to get some work done during the day) housekeeper and toddler wrangler.
I always want to be cute. Always. Even when I don't feel well or it's bloody hot.
But, I don't generally want to think about what it is that I'm wearing. Most mornings it's all I can do to get myself dressed and eyelashes mascara'd before it's time for D to leave for work. So the less I have to think about what I'm wearing the better.
Enter the maxi dress. A summertime staple for all women.
Y'all know I love a good day dress and this midi/maxi trapeze dress from Line & Dot is just perfection in my book. It came to me via The Daily Look but you can also find it here and here if you're not a member. It's priced the same. I would pretty much live in this dress if purchased and for the price I think it would be totally worth it. I love the slightly diaphanous feel and how it just seems to graze the body. I'm all about that these days (thank you So Cal heat wave).I was skimming through my inbox in a deleting frenzy when this lovely green number caught my eye but by the time my brain registered it's loveliness I had already hit delete. Sweet.
However, Monday morning there it was again. Almost begging me to investigate further.
How could I refuse? It also didn't help that the tagline was something like "Palm Springs Perfection". I mean. Obviously.

And then there are the shoes! Thanks to Andrea's photo on IG I've been crushing on the Shoemint Jordane's (also the Eila's) but am unsure if I just like the way they look on someone else or if they would really work for me. This is when online shopping is no bueno - I need to be able to try these babies on!
The concept of pairing this dress with either low heeled nude sandals, wedges or a strappy heel allows you to have some versatility without taking away from the stunning centerpiece of a dress. Accent with some fun pops of color by way of wrist and neck candy and it adds a fun unexpected twist to an otherwise simple dress.
This is why a maxi is the perfect summer staple it can be worn anywhere from the beach, to running errands, a summer wedding or even date night!
