FASHION FROM ABROAD: Maxi-Out

Warm temperatures bring in the typical springtime attire of jean shorts, sandals, or short babydoll dresses. But not this Fashionista. Rocking an adorable dress she found at a flea market, I love how she's wearing a maxi dress even in the high temperatures. With the loose, light texture of the dress, she isn't overwhelmed by the Paris sun, and she stands out with an entirely atypical outfit choice. While most Parisians tend to wear their favorite pair of espadrilles with trendy parachute pants, I love how this Fashionista mixes it up with flat sandals to give her a more bohemian look. 

Long dresses are a great investment for late spring and early summer, but be wary about materials and prints. While floral is a go-to print for the season, a full-length dress of it might be a little much. Moreover, silk might not be your best bet for the warmer months. Like this fashionista, cotton or light linen are your best bet. Perfect day dresses, a maxi dress is great for picnics in the gorgeous parks of Paris, or a stroll by the Seine. 

Accessories are also fun to work with when wearing your favorite maxi dress. Big straw totes are a great addition with the length of a maxi dress. But keeping it simple is always the best way to go!
