There’s nothing I love more than a maxi dress at the beach! Okay…maybe I love the beach itself a little more! But a gorgeous maxi dress on the beach seems to complete my summer dreams. I was lucky enough to take a trip to the Bahamas back in March before the world turned upside down. I wore some gorgeous maxi dresses that I hope to wear more this summer to dinner or maybe on another beach trip!? Do you live near a beach? If so, is it open?

This white Free People maxi is so pretty! I love the dramatic flow, ruffled asymmetrical hem, ruching at the bust, and subtle metallic embroidery. I’m wearing a white bralette underneath but you could also wear this as a cover-up!
You may remember this maxi dress from this post. I styled it two ways, for spring/summer and fall/winter! It’s a gorgeous Free People maxi dress in a soft, beautiful, peachy color perfect for summer. It has tie shoulder straps so you can adjust the length… and it’s so breezy. I mean, you take a few steps and the wind just picks up the dress and creates such eye-catching movement. The dress does have a deep v-neckline and low-cut sides so I would consider wearing a pretty lace cami underneath for added coverage. I’m wearing a lace bralette and it’s perfect at the beach! I would also wear it over your bathing suit as a chic cover-up.
My sister, Cathy, took these pictures. Didn’t she do an awesome job??

#3 | Mint Green Sundress Maxi Dress
This mint green maxi by Sundress was one of my favorites from the trip! It has slit sleeves, elastic fabric at the waist for comfort, a v-neckline, and it’s lined! I love the metallic threading and fun sequins. It’s the perfect pop of glam for summer! I’m 5’4” and the length is that perfect in-between…I can wear it with wedges to dress it up or sandals to keep it casual! It comes in sizes XS/S and M/L. I’m wearing XS/S. I featured more standout maxi dresses in this post.

#4 | Pink Maxi
You may remember the next two dresses from last year. This is a really special dress. I love the gorgeous, feminine pink, and white print. The cutout adds the perfect amount of sexy and sweet. The knotted details are cute and allow you to adjust for your body shape and comfort level. And I love the way it flows. Unfortunately, it’s sold out but I linked a similar option by the same brand here.

#5 | Yellow Maxi
This dress is the perfect mix of sexiness and elegance. The tie neck gives the dress a ladylike feel while the halter neckline and open back make it quite sexy! Just because we’re in our 40s, doesn’t mean we have to completely cover up! The color is PERFECT for summer! I love wearing yellow…it makes me feel so bright and happy! Unfortunately, it’s sold out but I linked a similar option by the same brand here.
