Must Have | The Maxi Dress

Welcome to the latest round of my Must Haves for the season. This time around, it's all about the maxi.

It is officially summer in Dallas and, even though I've been living in this massive state for eight years (still coming to terms with that number), I still find myself bewildered by how ridiculously hot it gets here. Most people hibernate in winter. I hibernate in summer, or fly out of state every other weekend. That is what the Dallas heat has driven me to. Well that, far more hair product than I ever used in Boston, and the annual search (albeit last minute) for a maxi dress, the perfect complement to putting up with triple digits as far as I'm concerned.

Enough about the sticky weather, on to the fun part that makes living in this unbearable heat (almost) worth it all. Check out my top maxi dress picks, and get your hands on this trend if you haven't already. Or find another maxi dress to add the collection. You know you can't stick with just one...like potato chips, or in my case, blazers.
