Belted Maxi Dress

I bought this dress before I got engaged but now that I have it, I’m loving it even more. I’m not sure if Mike and I are planning on doing engagement photos or not, but if we do, this dress is a top contender for wardrobe. I really wish I were at the beach wearing it… barefoot… skirt billowing out in an ocean breeze 😜 For now, my backyard will do!!

It’s also included in J. Crew’s Prime Time Event so it’s under $50 right now! (Sale ends at 11:59pm EDT on 7/14.)

When I first saw this dress online, I assumed it was more of a shirtdress. It’s actually more of a boho maxi dress that belts at the waist. Since boho is one of the last words I’d use to describe my style, I like the structure of this and the belt makes it feel more “me.” It’s a 10/10 on the comfort scale… the fabric is incredibly lightweight which I’ve been loving on these absurdly hot summer days.

And there are pockets. (That’s all you really need to know, right?)

^^ Can you even?

So beautiful on you!

You’ve convinced me to nab the yellow version! How is the sizing?

Did you go for an XS or S?

p.s. Is the belt removable?


I think it’s runs a little big- I’m wearing the XS and it’s plenty roomy. The belt is removable!


This dress does look super comfortable! It’s beautiful and has a great shape, which is sometimes lacking in maxi dresses – they can easily be shapeless, but this is actually stunning. Love the photo of you and the dogs!
Have a great weekend Carly 🙂 x
