Every Colorful Maxi Dress & Dramatic Hat to Buy This Summer

Wearing Gabrielle Union Dress from New York & Company

It seems that color is back in vogue and I for one am happy about it. We can all use a lot more color in our lives especially with the heaviness of everything happening in the world. Color just makes me happy. I sincerely tried to get into the whole white, cream, neutrals Pinterest look last year and I failed miserably at it. Neutrals just don’t express me enough. I need something bright, something bold, something that makes people smile when I walk past. More than that I just love clothing that makes me feel as vibrant on the outside as I do on the inside. I encourage all of you to wear your clothes. The clothes that you love, wear them even if it’s just to the mailbox or for a socially distant picnic this summer. Stop saving your favorite clothes and pieces for occasions. I think if the year 2020 has taught us anything it’s that tomorrow isn’t promised so enjoy the pieces in your closet today! I went off on a tangent but I’ve scoured the web and found all the best colorful maxi dresses and dramatic hats to pair them with this summer.

    I literally just purchased the forever21 floppy hat yesterday. After seeing you in it all last summer I finally decided it was time to have one of my own. It’s a small so let’s pray it actually fits my noggin.
