A feminine, breathable maxi dress is sublime for a hot day. I love the way this dress mixes bohemian touches with a classic paisley pattern and lace trim. It can be elevated to a more dressy look or worn casually for a comfortably chic look. I wore it when we went out to dinner last night. We enjoyed our dinner and martinis on the outdoor patio where this dress proved its worth in spades on a balmy summer night.
