Today’s post comes to you courtesy of the lovely Carissa Cady Photography. Carissa is a true California girl, but with some serious southern tendencies (the sweet tea drinking, pearl necklace wearing, y’all saying kinds). She loves Charleston so much that she decided to spend her summer here and I was lucky enough for her to find me (thanks Instagram!) and us get together for a shoot! Don’t worry though, if you love her work {duh} she’s willing to travel, especially to the south! Today also starts a series that I’m doing for the rest of the month of Maxi Monday’s. Each Monday I’m going to share with y’all some of my favorite maxi dresses, starting with the really summery and as the month goes on transitioning a bit more into Fall. Because, let’s face it, after months of warm weather we’re all sick of shaving our legs on the reg! Today’s is of course the most summery of the bunch. I am totally a seasonal person, not necessarily in the “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” way, but I like to take advantage of the time of year and dress appropriately. So, in Summer you will see me wear a lot of bright colors, making this the perfect maxi for the season! The print is absolutely beautiful and give you so many colors to work with. This style and color combo would look great with any body shape, skin/hair color or even age. I absolutely love the slits on each side of the dress that makes it feel a little sassy and sexy. Because the print is so busy, I kept accessories to a minimum with these gorgeous drop pearl earrings. I wore my white espadrille style wedges that were the perfect height for the length of the dress. I’ve been DYING for a bucket style bag and finally found this one at TARGET, yep that’s right. I feel like the bag keeps the outfit casual and perfect for lunch and a stroll around downtown.
