It’s finally warm enough for the maxi dress. Every year at this time it gets hard to fight the urge and avoid the maxi dress. The long, air circulating dress is sexy, sassy and cool. It never looks like you are trying too hard when wearing the maxi. Full of spunk and boldness, the maxi dress is perfect with some nice sandals and great big earrings. The bohemian vibe mixed with an elegant look is wonderful-- love it!

I get such positive imagery when I look at someone wearing the maxi dress and I always get compliments when I’m wearing mine. If you get a maxi dress dirty while walking on the beach, it’s no problem, you brush off the sand and continue on with the day. That’s the attitude the maxi dress comes with, a sort of carelessness, yet sophisticated in its own mysterious way. Not to get too philosophical over it, but hey, some things bring it out in me… the maxi dress being one of them!

Moving on to maxi dresses for purchase so you can feel as poetic as me, here we go. Victoria Secret is the definition of sexy, so where better to go to find a seriously sexy maxi dress. The tough part is that every dress on those models looks exceptionally gorgeous. It’s tough not to want them all when they’re on those beautiful models. I really like this orange-ish Cotton Jersey Maxi Dress. It’s an adjustable halter dress with a tie waist and a large keyhole-- wow, it’s hot! The color and the easy going style give it an ultimate purchase-worthy look.

For a maxi that you can transform for an incredible night time formal outing try this stunning Love Tease Halter Maxi Dress from Macy’s. It’s all black with a silver medallion ornament with rhinestones below the chest. The steep v-neckline and the simplicity of the dress give it a fancy look. This dress can be transformed from daytime summer fun to evening glamour by slipping on some one inch open-toed heels-- anything taller will take away from its sophistication.

A different floral looking dress is all it takes to fit in perfectly for the summer and Bloomingdales has that covered. The sweat Sweet Pea Deep V-Neck Maxi Dress with sheer floral print all over is awesome. The three-quarter sleeves with elastic cuffs give it an edge over other maxi dresses. Because of the shape and print of the dress the v-neckline looks extra steep. This would look great on a smaller breasted woman, because they can pull it off with class! There is a small keyhole underneath the very steep v-neck, for an extra spice, just in case the v-neck didn’t do it enough justice!
