How was your MDW? (Memorial Day Weekend, just in case you didn't know)😉

We spent the weekend at the newly remodeled Four Seasons Hotel Houston. Although it's only a ten minute drive from our house, our staycation was just what the doctor ordered. I mean who doesn't love playing tourist in their own city? If you've checked out my Instagram (be sure to follow along if you don't already). you definitely saw some of the fun we had at the hotel on my Insta Stories! I don't want to share too much because I'll be doing a full recap of our stay this Friday, so be sure to stop by for all the details! 

Schools out, temperatures are soaring, meaning summer is officially in full swing, and so is summer travel. Whether you're heading to the lake, visiting family across the country, or jet setting overseas, a maxi dress is the perfect travel companion. Maxi dresses are so comfortable and make traveling a breeze. Plus, you can wear them casually (like I did above) while you're en route to your destination, and once you arrive you can spritz on some perfume, put on some wedges, and throw on a cinched belt. You'll look effortlessly pulled-together, and not like you just stepped out of a car, or off a plane.

Note: always make sure your maxi dresses hits no lower than right above your ankle. This is the opportune length for any shape and size, and keeps the dress from dragging on the ground (ew), or getting stuck in an escalator (yikes)! 

Below I've rounded up ten travel ready maxis that are all under $100!!! With so many colors, prints, and materials to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect one for you.

P.S. What is it about long weekends that makes it so hard to get back into the swing of things? I had originally planned for this post to be on the blog this morning, but was having computer problems. Womp womp. I figured I'd give it a try posting in the evening, and see how the response is - we shall see! If you're an email subscriber, this post went live Wednesday night (5/31), so I'm sorry you're a day behind!

  1. What a perfect dress! Love the print, the length and also the fact that the neckline isn't cut waaaaaay down to there. That can be just as annoying as having your hemline drag the ground.
