Versatile Summer Maxi

DRESS: Simply Shine Boutique ruffle maxi c/o | SHOES: black wedges (sold out, similar HERE) | EARRINGS: tassel earrings (sold out, similar HERE) | WATCH: Wristology gold watch (on sale for $20!) | LIPS: Revlon moisture stain in 'India Intrigue'

It has been hot, hot, HOT the past few days in Manhattan, and I've been loving every second of it not only because I love the heat but also because I can finally start pulling out my summer clothes like this OTS maxi from Simply Shine Boutique!

For as long as I can remember, maxi dresses have been my mom's summer go-to. It's hard to think of a summer day she wasn't wearing one, and when I wore this dress this past weekend I totally understood why! It was not only super comfy but also kept me cool all day. 

I especially love the ruffled off-the-shoulder sleeves; they're so summery, fun and feminine! Some may say the OTS trend is becoming a little overdone this summer, but I think this dress is a classic take on it. An off-the-shoulder neckline is also a great choice when you know you're going to be outside all day because you won't be left with awkward tan lines. 

The versatility of this dress is astounding as well. I kept everything fairly simple here (my accessory collection is clearly not ready for the colorful summer months), but this dress would look so fun paired with any color you could imagine! The outfit options are truly endless; add a colorful pair of earrings, a clutch or stack of bracelets and you're set! 

I also want to talk about where I got this dress from real quick! I got this dress from Simply Shine Boutique, which just opened in Overland Park! There's few things better than a brand-new boutique, am I right JOCO ladies?! I really like their basics, like the dress I'm wearing here and their pocket tees, as well as their jewelry selection! Everything is so summery, cute and, best of all, affordable! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to enjoy the beautiful the weather. One three days and two finals separating me from summer!
