How to Style Maxi Dresses in the Summer

As a petite girl, I’ve stayed away from maxi dresses — they’re either way too long or too overwhelming for my small frame. However, they are also one of the most comfortable things to wear in the summer! So believe me when I say that when I find a maxi dress that fits, it’s definitely a keeper.

This gray BCBG dress has been a staple in my summer wardrobe for years now. I love the high-low cut and the soft, flowy texture. It’s perfect for a stroll around town or a walk along the water — I wore it on a day trip to Governors Island with friends and felt like a queen stepping off the boat with the wind blowing through my hair and dress! 😉

You’ve probably seen me wearing these mules and bag in a couple of posts now, but I swear I can’t get enough of them! I’m seriously obsessed. I could walk for miles in these shoes, and this bag is literally my aesthetic in a nutshell. If I were a bag, this would be it. Ha!

Can you believe it’s August already? Where has the summer gone? I’ll be honest though, I’m secretly excited for fall. It’s my favorite season and I can’t wait to experience my first fall in NYC. ❤
