1 Boho Maxi Dress

She’s wearing a light blue Odd Molly dress and jacket, Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses, and tan shoes.

5 Floral Maxi

6 Colour Pop Maxi Dress

Colour Pop Maxi DressBlogger Grasie from Style Me Grasie stands out from the crowd in a bright citrus maxi dress. The dress is by This Is Genevieve and she teams it with a blingy J.Crew necklace and strappy white heels.

7 Striped Maxi Skirt
