Maxi Dresses

Maxi Dress_What Would V Wear_Chicago_Vanessa Lambert_Shein_Spring

When the temperatures rise I’ve been known for incorporating maxi dresses into my stylish repertoire. They are easy breezy beautiful — from bohemian chic to retro chic, I’ve selected the best maxis this season has to offer.

Maxi dresses are most definitely your year-round staple this season! Not only are they super versatile but also super easy to dress! I simply added a belt around my waist and kept accessories to a minimum. Sometimes less is simply more.

Speaking of simplicity…Not too long ago I read a quote by Satyarthi. It said that “childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child’s eye – it is very beautiful”. I love this quote, and I couldn’t agree more with Satyarthi. I’ve been so busy these past weeks that I almost forgot to enjoy each and every moment with my family. We’re so distracted these days that we forget to look at the beauty all around us — but my son, Kingston is a great reminder. He has those innocent eyes that sees beauty everywhere.

As always, thanks much for reading and don’t forget to check out my favorite maxis below!

Much love, always.

    Such a great quote, there is beauty everywhere.The belted print Chiffon Maxi dress from Nordstrom is amazing! I don’t think I’ve seen you in a Maxi in a while, looking absolutely stunning love!

    You look so beautiful in this dress, which you’ve styled perfectly, Vanessa! I love that you’ve added the black waist belt and kept the accessories at minimum, it creates a nice light and airy feel to the overall look. I also love that shade of brown in the dress on you, it looks so beautiful against your skin tone! I couldn’t agree more with that quote. Life is SO busy and there’s always something that needs to planned and done, so it’s so easy to become distracted and overwhelmed, taking our attention away from the present and the beauty of right now. Children don’t have a care in the world, they know that somehow, everything will always be alright. Can we imagine how our lives would be if we had that mentality?! A lot more peaceful! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you’re having the best week so far, love you!

    OMG this dresssss! Honestly before I even clicked on the blogpost I clicked on the dress icon. I can’t believe this is from SheInside. I thought you bought this from Nordstrom, Asos, or even a designer. I have heard of SheIn over the years because of different YouTube hauls. However, i have yet to buy anything from them until now. I have to have this dress because not only is it gorg, it’s also affordable! You look amazing V!

    I’m in serious shock that this dress is from SheIn! It’s absolutely stunning and your styling is perfect. The way you cinched at the waist really makes the entire look. Gorgeous Vanessa!

    I love bohemian, dear V., any kind of, chic or retro, but bohemian! You loom gorgeous, dear V., this dress is amazing! The sandals as well and your style is always so sophisticated! You are so right, to see things through the eyes of a child is so refreshing – they are so honest and see beauty or novelties without judging! Hugs, dear V.!

    Love this maxi dress, Vanessa! The slit detail is just perfect and I love the dress paired with these shoes! I’ve been looking for a pair like this to wear to an upcoming wedding. I need to see if these come in black because they are perfect! Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!

    Oooh! I saw this dress earlier and wanted to order it, I was so in love with it, but it was not available anymore in my size. When I opened your post I said to G, oh No she is wearing my dress!! Lol! It probably looks better on you! Perfection!

  23. May 12, 2016 / 9:35 AM

    Oh my GOD I LOVE this dress!! I can’t believe it’s from She-In; I might need to get my hands on that 😉 I feel like I’ve seen a celebrity wear a similar dress but I forgot what celeb… Love finding gorgeous dupes!

    Sometimes as we get busy and get older we forget to stop and enjoy each second we’re lucky enough to experience. The kids around us are great reminders to take it easy and not be so serious all the time. Love your dress by the way!

    breath taking is the best way to describe how you look in this dress , loving it x
