Summer Maxi Dress & Giveaway!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED: Erin J. is our winner!  Thanks for entering, guys!! 🙂

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen me mention that our Phoenix temps have hit their highs already this year…we’ve even seen 120 degrees!  A couple readers have asked how we dress for temps this ludicrous and so today I’ve got a fun and breezy summer look to share!


When I first moved to Arizona, I shied away from pants and maxi dresses in the summer, thinking that more fabric = hotter.  Until I learned the magic of loose, flowy pants and long dresses!  When the fabric is lightweight and loose, these silhouettes are great to wear, even on the hottest of days.  They offer protection from seemingly sub-zero indoor AC temperatures, but keep you cool outdoors as well.  And the best part??  You can hike them up as high as you want in the car.


I am absolutely in LOVE with this flowy faux-wrap dress from Pink Blush, a trendy Women’s Online Boutique.  They specialize in flattering clothing for women that easily transition to maternity and nursing wear – how genius is that??  The wrap-front on this dress would be perfect for breastfeeding and is stretchy enough to wear through an entire pregnancy as well.  You know, just in case. 🙂

Plus, it’s the only wrap dress I’ve ever worn that gives enough coverage up top without an undershirt!  Cause there ain’t no way I’m wearing layers when it’s 120 out.



I also can’t get enough of these bold, tropical floral prints that are popping up everywhere.  The perfect summer floral!  Be sure to check out this dress HERE and all the other amazing dresses and cute styles they have over at Pink Blush!

    I love that print! So cute! That would be perfect for church. If I wore a dress in the middle of the week my kids would think I was up to something. 😉

    I hate buying something, only to have to layer it! And I love the length. At least I know my son won’t help me hike it up. 🙂 Now to find a solid colored one…..

    What a pretty dress! I keep seeing dresses from Pink Blush and I think I need to get one soon! It looks like it’s also nursing friendly since it’s a wrap. It’s hard to wear dresses while nursing. ? So this would be awesome!
