No Longer Neglected Maxi Dress: Perfect Black Cotton.

I realize that Summer is already half-way over and I only started wearing my Maxi Dresses just about a month ago. Though some outfits were not photographed. A couple of weeks ago however I wore my Comfortable, Black, Perfect Maxi Dress and I did take some photos. This is one of my first Maxi Dresses that I have owned for a number of years now. It is the type of breezy, 100% light cotton material and of course the style and color go with everything, yet I have worn it very little. And also I hadn't worn it for 3 Summers. As a matter of fact my Sister-in-law has borrowed and worn it a few times these last couple of years. I finally decided to wear it for an evening walk/refreshments + ice cream date with my husband and Vivian, and I discovered that the dress has pockets, which makes it even more perfect. Since the evenings are a little cooler, I paired it with my elbow-sleeve Ivory Cardigan. I wore my low black wedges with it and a couple of Neon Bangles for some Color and it ended up being a very Simple but Chic Outfit, don't you think? This is the first of a Neglected Maxi Dress coming to the blog. I will show you one more this weekend. It is about time I no longer neglect my Maxi Dresses. Summer won't be here forever!

And speaking of Dresses, I added many new ones to my wardrobe this year so I want to bring you another Dress Week next week, showing you more of my New Favorites. Stay tuned. =)
