Ever wonder what to wear to a garden party? I was recently invited over to Alicia Wood’s home for an amazing Garden Party and I didn’t hesitate to debut this beautiful blue and white stripe maxi dress. It was the perfect occasion. On second thought, we decided to show you how to Style A Maxi Dress today on both of our blogs!
Alicia and I have been good friends for over 20 years! We met through the Junior League of Dallas and have served/volunteered in many non-profit organizations together. In fact, blogging is only one of the many things we have in common. Our friendship encompasses so much more than our blogs. She’s like my little sister, especially since I am an only child. She’s been there for me through thick and thin and I hope she would say the same about me. We are both Capricorns, Type A personalities and very driven. As you can imagine, we are super competitive (in a good way)!
She hosted this amazing Garden Party during the rewardStyle Conference and it was so much fun! There is no one who entertains like Alicia. Every detail is perfectly executed with lots of thought and attention to detail. If you want great recipes, home interior ideas and entertaining tips (in addition to fashion, clean beauty and travel) be sure to check out her blog. She’s so inspiring!
Maxi dresses are such a great wardrobe addition for spring and summer. Ramsey and I were just discussing how much we like them and she helped me round up a few more choices below. Here’s a style tip: If you have never worn a Maxi Dress, I suggest starting with a solid color. Wearing a print is fun but the amount of fabric can be overwhelming. By the way, I can wear this blue and white maxi dress with heels or flats. It works both ways (see this picture).
