Well, when I have to dress up and go to a cocktail event, I always prefer a long maxi dress. One of my favorite things to do is find a dress that has an open back. There is something about this look to me that screams elegant yet sexy at the same time. When I saw this dress from Hiptique, I knew it was a must have for the summer. I have several events coming up, and this will fit nicely for many of them.
Another big factor for me is also comfort. I mean dancing five hours at a wedding is never fun in a super tight dress, am I right? Also, when going with a maxi, you can wear a dressy flat, which for me is always my preference for a long night.
The front of this dress is just as chic. I love the v-neck, and there is enough coverage that it will fit any body type without showing off too much. The lines of the dress are fun and unique, and the color will carry you through any season. Is it nuts that I am already seeing this next fall with a jacket?
A huge trend for spring are layered necklaces like this one that I found at Lulus. Even though the print is a lot, you can still add layered jewelry and make it all come together. Do not be afraid to branch out and try this trend.
Also, the beach behind me is all I am craving after a few crazy weeks of work. Summer time please come quick, am I right?
