This has been the summer of dresses. My relationship with dresses is a love/hate one, but recently I am feeling the love. Summer is all about keeping it simple and dresses are an easy escape to get ready in one big swoop. Another reason why dresses are winning in my book? They are perfect for traveling.
So far this summer I have been on four work trips, I have two coming up, and one personal trip planned before we hit September. With all of my current travel, I pride myself on packing everything in a carry-on suitcase. That is a huge accomplishment coming from someone who used to pack up the back of her car for a weekend trip. Let me add, I still do slightly overpack but it all works out when it fits into one space. There is nothing better than being to throw on a dress and run out the door.
Back in June I went out to Montauk and this palm-leaf stunner was #1 on my packing list. Did I mention it is under $25?! It is the perfect piece for any summer vacations you have coming up. I plan on wearing this maxi dress well into the cooler months as well. A denim or leather jacket will be the perfect piece to layer with.
