fashion // maxi must.

now that the weather is finally making a drastic turn towards the bright side, let’s talk warm weather attire. [as I’m saying this.. it’s 50°, windy, & rainy. ugh]. I am convinced that every woman needs to own at least 3 maxi dresses. absolutely convinced. they’re so versatile, you’d be doing a disservice to yourself by not owning one, or three. throw them on for a quick trip to the store. or add a statement necklace & a bright lip for a date night. not to mention the comfort. do it for yourself.

three reasons why you need a maxi dress. now.

1. to shield your sunburn legs from the previous pool day. [this could be just me].

2. for this kind of morning – “oh no, I am going to be late and my legs aren’t perfectly shaven, but it’s too hot for pants”.

3. I can’t put in the necessary effort to pick out an outfit that matches.

the weather has been absolutely unpredictable in iowa. it goes from 90° & sunny to 65° & rainy in no time at all. so dressing in layers is essential. you never know when you’re going to need to strip down. or cover up! my go to is always a blazer. it dresses up the simplest of ensembles. and provides stylish warmth.

when I saw this cynthia rowley black & white tweed blazer at TJ Maxx, I may have screamed. classic & neutral, with endless possibilities. I knew I could pair it with any color pants. or any color top.

and even dared to pair it with leopard-print flats.
