Maxi dresses are one of my absolute favorite wardrobe staples. They're effortless, easily dress up or down, and can make such a bold statement. This season in particular, I've scooped up a few really fun ones to freshen up my Summer wardrobe. The two below were H&M acquisitions, and I just got this hot pink one to wear to a wedding later this summer. Outside my comfort zone? Way yes, however despite my general aversion to pink clothing, I kind of love it. (Note... the last 'pink' outfit tag happened over a year ago on my blog lol)

H&M striped maxi dress c/o [exact under $50] // H&M denim jacket c/o [exact under $30] // Leather cross body [exact on mega sale | more drool-worthy blue cross body bags] // Lace up sandals [this season's nearly identical version under $30] // Irresistible Me hair extensions c/o
I realize my two most recent looks only highlight one way to wear a maxi dress, with a denim jacket, but there are SO many other cute ways....
- Layer a t-shirt over and knot it to define your waist
- Over a button down when it cools off a little
- With a vest
- Fake a maxi skirt by wearing a blouse over
- Knot the hem to make a high-low hem
Even though I've already added a few maxis to my wardrobe this season, I've still been doing plenty of online window shopping (basically my favorite free hobby...) So I thought I'd roundup a few of my recent favs, almost all under $100 (most way under!) I am particularly interest in that gorg tiered blue number, which also comes in olive. I think having to decide between the two colors might be the only reason I haven't scooped it up yet, especially at the sale price! Which are your favs?
And I'm so excited to share that today I'm cohosting a linkup with Jessica from The J Petite & Sophia from Pucker Up Style! Make sure and pop over to their blogs to see their take on pink lips or maxi dresses and leave <3
