A Maxi Dress for Maximum Summer Style

A maxi dress is a fantastic solution for maximum chic in the summertime.  You may remember from Tropical Inspired that I’ve been eying the Gap geo print maxi dress.  The style finally arrived in my local stores, so I tried it on and fell in love with the dress all over again.

The black and white, geometric print coupled with the long and slim silhouette of the dress make some kind of style magic together.  I certainly envision myself wearing this dress often throughout the summer.

Budget tip:  Shop the dress online for greater savings.  I purchased mine for $42.24 (with free shipping) using online discount codes.  The dress is still full-price ($74.95) in-store.

Fit:  I’m wearing the dress in an XS.  I sized down because the top appears to run large.  The length is perfect for me (with or without heels) and I’m only 5’4″.  Taller women, then, may find the dress short.

      It's a beauty, right? Too bad you don't like halters because this print would be amazing on you! Did you check out the maxi skirt option in the same print?

      I actually saw that too. I may get it if it's on sale or clearance.

      So, you definitely understand, Lyddie! I was actually willing to pay full price (even though I know better), so I'm glad I was able to get online cheaper. Thanks for stopping by!
