The maxi dress you’ve been searching for

February 7, 2017

This is THE dress!

Ever come across something you’ve been searching and searching for, but could never find…and then you find it?! This is the case with this beautiful maxi dress from Free People. To me, it has everything I could ever want in a dress: a gorgeous print, effortless draping, figure flattering, and a unique twist. Although this is an investment piece (currently $350), this dress can take you from the beach to a wedding to a wedding!

When vacationing in Hawaii, my day usually consists of a quick workout, spending the day by the beach or ocean, and then heading out to dinner or bbqing some fresh fish. After being in the sun all day and getting sandy and salty by the beach, the last thing I want to do is spend my precious vacation time doing my hair and putting on make up…so I do 2 things to cut down on my ‘getting ready’ time: pack super cute dresses (that speak for themselves) and get my lashes done at Noir Lash Lounge!

This dress just so happened to match the local greenery on Maui and brought out all the gorgeous colors of the trees, flowers and ocean. Since this dress has so many great colors, you can play up almost any color you like! I’m a big fan of mixing prints so I grabbed my YSL star-printed shoulder bag to throw my phone, gloss and wallet in.

As I mentioned before, I don’t like spending much time on vacation doing my hair and make up. I think it’s a big waste to leave the beach early just to have your hair looking a little better and to throw on a bunch of make up….BUT I also feel naked without having at least mascara on (my lashes are so blonde!) so before traveling I like to get lash extensions at Noir Lash Lounge! These puppies are their ‘Carte Blanch’ set, giving a little more volume than the standard lashes and will instantly give you a completely made up look. I wake up, throw on some moisturizer and sunscreen, and run out the door without looking bare faced…it’s amazing!!

There are so many other cute dresses on Free People right now so be sure to check out their others if this one doesn’t speak to you! Maxi dresses are a must in any women’s wardrobe, and this style is extremely versatile. You can throw this on for an after beach look as I did, or pair it with heels and your hair pulled back for a dressier look.

    It’s a lovely dress! I also believe in investing in pieces that you know you are going to get a good use out of them. Especially if you’ve been searching for something like that for a while!
