What do flowers, hamburgers and hotdogs have in common? They all mark the unofficial start of summer! Even though the weather temperatures are fluctuating, it doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to do so. Brighten up your look with a little flower power!
I absolutely love this outfit. From the moment I put it on, I instantly felt both carefree and chic (not typically two reactions that you have at the same time…lol). I especially loved putting this look together because it showcases how you can modify designs to suit your body needs.
As you may have guessed, I’m not a big fan of ‘off-the-rack’ maxi dresses (for obvious reasons). Despite this, I LOVED how I was able to convert a short maxi dress into a perfectly long/flowy flower skirt. The white criss cross tank just added the icing on the cake. The feminine floral design added added a lot of sexiness without feeling too exposed. This will definitely be on heavy rotation in my weekend closet.
TIP: If you’re buying a maxi dress to use as a skirt, size DOWN for maximum results. Maxi skirts are made without much of a shape, so you should use caution when selecting your size to ensure you don’t add the appearance of extra pounds around your hips/thighs.
Are you digging the flowers this summer or are you trying something different? Let me know your thoughts.
