White Hot Shopping List

This summer is white hot, which means you can look hot while staying cool!  It is that time of year when you go outside and it is so hot that it feels like your skin might actually melt off and the only thing you can talk to anyone about is how hot it is outside.  Hence a post dedicated to the heat and a summer trend that might just help keep you cool.  White is in for summer and I am trying a new thing on Garden of Glam today and featuring a shopping section of some fabulous lust worthy pieces! So scroll and enjoy and shop your heart out!

Maxin’ Out (Part II)

Maxi dresses are my absolute favorite!  I live in them in the spring and summer and just can’t get enough.  They are so wonderful because they are easy and always look chic.  Easy and comfortable clothes are crucial to surviving the horribly humid DC summers.  On the days when I just can’t decide what to wear, because it is too hot for words I throw on a maxi and instantly feel ready to beat the heat and confront the day in style.

I am in love with one shoulders, which are more unusual in maxis making this dress extra fab.

Slits for days! This allows for the drama of a maxi yet coolness of a short dress.

Maxin’ Out

Maxi dresses are my absolute favorite for spring/summer, well really life.  Maxis have made a big resurgence in the past couple of years and I am so grateful!  They are the perfect seasonal transition piece and are flattering on everyone!  I have found that a surprising amount people are intimidated by maxis and question whether they will ever wear them and where they will wear a maxi to.  In reality once you discover the amazingness of a maxi you will find that it is all you want to wear.  Maxis are uber comfortable and beyond chic, perfect for casual and formal occasions!  They are the definition of a closet staple and elegance.

One of my fav things about maxi dresses is that they add about 10 inches of height.

Another amazing thing about maxis is that they can be worn with flats or heels.

The final reason I love maxis is that I can sit like this on top of a couch in a dress and not worry about having a Britney moment.

Very special thank you to my amazing photographer, Maggie!
