The maxi dress is a wonderful solution to summer dressing. It can cover a multitude of sins, relieve the pressure to have your legs ready for public viewing and it feels so liberating after months of tights and tiresome layers. If you want to cover bra straps just slip a vest on. I am very straight so I need the belt to give me some semblence of shape. The dermatologist suggested a sun hat and factor 50 so you won’t see me without it on brighter days. I am glad for any excuse to wear a hat, I have long admired their ability to add polish to any look.
