It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Yup! Summa Time! And nothing says summer quite like maxi dresses! I’ve had this gorgeous Jessica Simpson pleated maxi dress sitting in my closet since my friend’s pre-wedding celebration in Mexico as seen in this post.
I knew the next time I wore this dress I wanted to style it in a more casual fashion, therefore I opted for another summer staple no woman (or man) should be without; a Blazer Vest! If you know me, you know I have an obsession with blazers. Well, blazer vests are just perfect for our steamy Miami weather, however they also transition well into the fall and winter months. Not that Miami has fall or winter, but just follow along. Blazer vests are incredibly versatile, they pair great with shorts, skirts, pants or leggings and I just love pieces that can be dressed up and down for the day or night.
I am a little sad I couldn’t get pictures that truly depict the flow and beauty of this dress, it was actively raining while my dear friend Teri snapped the photos below. I’m hoping for better weather this weekend!
