Whether it’s a holiday barbecue or a company outing, you want an outfit that will allow you stay cool, move easily and sit on the ground or at a picnic table. For most people that means a pair of shorts and a top. There’s nothing wrong with that but if you want to be a truly stylish mama, why not try a maxi dress? They meet all the criteria and are THE trend of the summer. From Target to Neiman Marcus, they’re everywhere. Plus, maxi dresses are so easy to just throw on that you can wear one running errands or to the office (just put a cardigan or blazer over it and pair with wedges). Try dressing one up with heels, some jewelry and a sock bun for a night out.
