Monday Mingle: Summer Style


For me, summer hasn’t really arrived until I am wearing a maxi dress and wedges.  It is just the epitome of summertime style, no?  I love the classic stripes and easy fit of this one featured below.  Adding in the braided belt, wedges and fedora really give it some personal style…which is key for me…finding ways to make the simple look my own.  Are maxis a favorite for you as well?  How would you style the one featured below?

#MondayMingle time again….the stylish collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of MomTrends.   I hope you will join in the linkup below….we love seeing what everyone is wearing.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great week!

    That maxi looks perfect on you, Carly! And yay for adding your own personal style to it! I usually reach for dresses with thicker straps…strapless bras are not my friend! lol!

    Carly, your B+W Maxi Dress is gorgeous. I am in search of a similar striped maxi myself. Love the 2 necklaces and though they are different they work together.
