Hi sweet friends and happy Thursday! Goodness gracious it’s been a hot minute since we’ve talked here on Sabby Style, and I do apologize for being a bit silent! This month has flown by and I’m in disbelief that it’s already Memorial Day weekend. This year is seriously zooming on by and as much as I hate that we’re approaching the 1/2 year mark, I am SUPER excited that the unofficial start to Summer is here. So what better way to kick off the warm-weather season than with this fabulous romper maxi dress aka a Raxi!
As if a maxi dress wasn’t already the cat’s meow, the world of Summer dresses has upped the ante with addition of a romper underneath! Be still my heart. Maxi dresses flow effortlessly and instantly make you appear to be dressed up and like you have your ish together! They are ideal for all sorts of occasions; from weddings, bridal & baby showers, Sunday church, farmer’s markets, movie dates, patio happy hours, and even just running your daily errands. The only downfall about maxi dresses is that when you’re out with your girls, busting a move on the dance floor, or the wedding DJ is killing it and “how low can you go” comes on, but you can’t fully live your best life because you ain’t dropping it to the floor while wearing a dress. Please tell me I’m not the only young 30’s gal who knows what I’m talking about! Well have no fear because with this Raxi, you’ll be able to drop it low and shuffle to and fro with ease and grace! If dancing isn’t your thing, the Raxi is great for bending down to pick up kids, dogs, grocery bags, etc.! I just love knowing that even if there’s a strong Summer breeze, my bum is covered.
I am OBSESSED with the mixed stripes & palm print! Was there ever a more perfect Summer or Tropical Vacay piece? I think not. Another bonus to this Raxi is that the neckline is cut slightly higher than most dresses/rompers I’ve been seeing lately. I personally feel more confident when my chest is covered up, and the higher neckline also makes this Raxi suitable for a variety of occasions, making it quite versatile and easy to wear! It does have a slight drape back (not drastic!), but my strapless bra slightly showed in the back, so I opted for the NuBra for my undergarment choice! If you girls have never heard of or tried the NuBra, it is LIFE CHANGING! And normally I don’t get down with sticky bras, seeing how I’m on the fuller chested side of life. But I promise that whether you’re an A or DD, the NuBra works like a charm! And you can reuse them over and over. I’ve worn mine at least 20x already and it still sticks and stays up & on.
Now that we’ve got your undergarment needs taken care of, let’s chat about these gorgeous accessories! First of all, the straw bag trend is on fire right now, and circle/round bags are also super popular. The best of those two trends collided and formed into this darling tan cross body! This is the perfect purse to wear with anything and everything tropical! The turquoise green beaded statement earrings brought out the green from the palm print and my white bracelets (10% off with code sabbystyle10 from Taudrey Jewelry) added subtle pops of white to my wrist, bringing out that tan! And what outfit is complete without a bright pink shoe?? Pops of pink are my faves and it was a great touch to the green leaves and black & white stripes!
