Rain, rain, go away! I’ve said it before and I’ll say again, Pittsburgh weather is crazy and unpredictable. However, lately, we can’t seem to go a day without at least a little bit of rain and that can be quite the downer. This weather has me thinking it will never be nice again! When the weather has us feeling blue, it’s the perfect time to pull out our bold colors to cheer us up. This Fashionista sports a gorgeous colored maxi dress that is sheer and lightweight (perfect for muggy days) and could be worn to basically any summer occasion (weddings, barbecues or the beach). I mean, everyone loves some color, especially if it’s in the form of a maxi.

How To: To mimic this Fashionista’s flawless look, try this funky maxi dress from River Island. If that’s a little too bold, try this maxi, also from River Island, that’s a little more muted. Pair either one with these snazzy Madden Girl sandals from DSW and you’re set for a day of dodging the summer showers.
