Spring Essentials Countdown #8: Maxi Dress


For you gals who love dresses in the summer (and not shaving your legs), then the maxi dress is your new best friend.  I was confused for a long time about why people had to call it the "maxi" dress, it just sounds weird.  Why not just a long dress?  Anyway, they're usually made of awesome light-weight fabrics like linen or cotton gauze  and they're oh-so comfy.  Maybe you don't love your arms or just need more skin coverage?  A lightweight cardi for spring is perfectly acceptable.  Even a short-sleeved terry cloth hoodie would be cute and beachy.  Here are some bargains below:

This is more beautiful in person and if like me, you don't love this neckline, put a tank under it.  There's nothing wrong with layering...at Target for $22.99


Blue and beautiful at AE.com...$44.50

Forever 21 had a lot of good ones. It was hard to narrow it down to this one for $22.80
