Maximizing You Maxi Dress

It's a hot one today, summer is in full effect. Sometimes it can be more difficult to come up with outfits for summer than for fall/winter.  In the colder months its easy, throw on a sweater, some jeans with boots, maybe a scarf and your done. Summer time can be more challenging, not only do I want to be cool, but also want to look cute.  The past few years I found the best way to accomplish the cool, cute and stylish look for summer is with a maxi dress.  When maxi dresses first became popular a few years ago, I was hesitant to try them.  Would a long maxi dress look good on a plus size girl? Well the answer is YES!  Yes you can wear a maxi dress even if your curvy or plus size.  Never say never to fashion until you try it on. That's the rule I learned from blogging. If you see a style or trend you like, try it on before you rule it out.  Not everything will look good on everybody, but you'd be surprised what styles can work for you.   GO TRY IT ON!  That's how I learned maxi dress can work for me and now I love to wear them.    

Last weekend for the Sally Hansen Nail Art Party I wore a new maxi dress.   I found this dress at Ross for like $8.00, talk about a bargain.  Its not a fancy dress, but I liked the color and print. It fits me well and the flowiness of the dress kept me cool and comfortable through out the day.  This maxi dress could also be dressed up a bit more with some heels or wedges, and different accessories.  I prefer not to wear strapless dresses, but this maxi is a strapless tube top style. I wore a light crop cardigan to cover up and not have to wear a strapless bra (i hate them).  This maxi dress could work for many occasions and very versatile for day and night. 

How I wore the maxi dress for a casual afternoon of manicures with the girls. 

Tube-top maxi dress from Ross only paid about $8!

 Are you now convinced a maxi dress can work for you?
