The Bay Area is known for its chilly year-round weather, but when a heat wave hits, it’s too hot for words. Last week during one of those waves I wore this chic floral Merritt Charles maxi. I instantly fell in love with the romantic print of the dress and the thin waist tie. When it comes to waist ties (whether thick or thin), they are perfect with maxis because you don’t get lost in all of that fabric, and it adds for an enchanting waistline.
As summer approaches, I always find that maxi dresses are a great staple to have in my closet because they’re so fun and easy to wear (not to mention darling). Also, I absolutely love this style as summer wedding- ready attire. It adds just the right amount of elegance and romance for a day of celebration.
Merritt Charles is a new favorite designer I discovered off of Revolve. He carries fun maxis like these but other pretty minimalistic pieces as well. Check him out on Revolve for more summer staple numbers!
