Maxi dresses you can wear anywhere

Schools out for summer and I am officially ready to dress like it. Screw early morning wake-ups, rushing grumpy kids out the door and dressing like I don’t give a sh*t.  I can’t wait to sleep in (even just an extra 15 minutes!) and enjoy summer—and my summer uniform: maxi dresses. Long flowy dresses are my warm weather staple, perfect for a day in the sun with my family or a night out on the town. You can keep it casual with a boho hat or easily dress it up with strappy heels. Throw on a jacket and boots and you can get away with wearing it well into the fall.

I fell for this Gabriela Hearst maxi dress because of the beautiful geometric pattern.

I love that every time I move, the pleats reveal hidden designs underneath.
Genevieve enjoying summer time in a boho maxi dress I usually pair my maxi dresses with booties, a crossbody bag (like this one from Ugg) and my favorite Eugenia Kim hat.

While this dress is definitely a splurge, there are a ton of fun styles and patterns at every price point. Some of the maxi dresses that are currently on my wish list are the Sollie dress from Sezane, the Vivienne dress from People Tree and the Chanda stripe dress from EcoVibe.
