Easy Maxi

I love a good maxi dress.  I’ve worn this one from Parker countless times and reworked it each time with a fun belt, hat or bag.  I think maxi dresses look best with a belt (to cinch the waist) and I’ve been eyeing this belt and this belt to add to my collection.  Pretty soon, I’m going to have to replace my beloved panama hat and french market basket with this hat and this bag.  I can’t believe summer is almost over, but I am kind of excited to start pulling out my cashmere sweaters, riding boots, and Missoni scarves!

    Fabulous relaxed look!! I love the contrast of the leather belt with the soft print of your maxi. The hat of course, is a great compliment to your look. First time visitor and I think I will return for more ;-)

    I love that print! It photographs interestingly. You're just too cute :) I've never found that I could pull off a maxi dress myself. I tend to feel swallowed since I'm shorter.
