MAXImized Summer // Striped Off the Shoulder Maxi Dress

Growing up in Florida, I remember spending every day of summer break at the beach because of how hot it was. As much as I love the sunshine state, the sun can be blistering and feel unbearably humid; a girl has to be prepared! To remedy the situation I went shopping and found this maxi for only $22! The best part is it keeps me cool and I’m not having to walk around everywhere in a bathing suit to prevent from sweating.

I like the off-the-shoulder style of the dress and the above the knee side slits. This way you don’t feel so retrained like your going to split the dress open or walk around like your saran wrapped. It also comes with a removable/adjustable fabric belt so I can choose to tie it in the back, side, or replace it all together. Without it the dress is shapeless, it just depends on your preference.

Style Tip: As an option, I switched the fabric belt for a faux leather hook eye belt I found from Charming Charlie for $5 [SIMILAR 1, SIMILAR 2]! The rigidity of the belt gives more shape to the draped fabric plus the contrast adds depth to the ensemble. Although the belt can make it look more casual, I love the bronze detail of the hook eye [SIMILAR 1, SIMILAR 2] and changes it from Greek Goddess to Coachella Chic!

I love the look with the other belt too. That warm rich color is perfect with the cool white dress!

I thought the same! I love the contrast and the fact that it was $5 clearly made it better!
