Summer Essentials - Maxi Dresses and Statement Necklaces

I wrote this blog post as a guest post for my friend Abby.  She published it a week or so ago so I thought I would share it on my blog now too!  Abby is a fashion blogger so I wrote a fashion post just for her!

I don't typically do fashion posts but decided to do one in honor of Abby since she does such great ones.  I always look forward to seeing how she puts outfits together!

I don't know about you but I want to be comfortable especially in summer when it is hot and humid.  I don't think there is anything more comfortable then a maxi dress (well besides pj's but I can't wear those out in public)!

My favorite summer look is to pair a gorgeous statement necklace with a comfy maxi dress.  I love that you can make the look work for so many different situations.

Dress: Jenny Boston Necklace: similar

Dress: Kiki La'Rue Necklace: Stella and Dot

Dress: GAP Outlet Necklace: Banana Republic Outlet

I bought all three of these dresses this summer.  I've had to refrain from buying many more.  How many maxi dresses does one girl need!?  I think I could justify one or two more if I see a good sale.

Which look is your favorite? 


  1. I love your sense of style. You always look great and comfortable at the same time! Are necklaces that are that big comfortable to wear? They don't feel heavy around your neck?

  2. I love this look! You wear it perfectly.

  3. Gotta love maxi anything-- the coziness of pajamas but much more flattering :)!

  4. Oooh I love all of your maxis! I agree - they are the most comfy!

  5. i LOVE that kikilarue dress!!! You look so good in all these pics! Good luck this weekend!

  6. Dear Jodi,

  7. I love maxi's too - you have some really fun ones :)
