July is my very favorite month of the year for What I'm Wearing Now posts. It's usually hot here in Chicago, but not unbearably hot like August tends to me. There are lots of parties and concerts and lake trips and other fun summery things that require me to put on more than my summertime work-from-home shorts and t-shirts uniform. It's the month where I'm most able to take advantage of my favorite pieces in my closet. This has been the perfect July for all of these things, and I'm genuinely sad that there's only a week left of it.

As you can see in the collage above, I've been living in my usual lightweight dresses (including this one and this one which are not shown above but are not to be missed as they are SUPER reduced in price right now), tees, cut-offs and sandals. But I've also ventured beyond my usual comfort zone this month, into maxi dresses - which I've always found beautiful, but don't usual work for my body type. I've actually found the majority of my beloved maxi dresses via the Knox Rose line from Target, believe it or not. They're really beautiful and so flattering and best of all, affordable AF.

We are going on another trip, way up to Door County, Wisconsin, later this week, and the kids and I will be going on another weekend trip to Indianapolis in a couple of weeks - so between our travels and other fun weekend activities (and maybe even a date night or two with Robbie sans kids), I'm hoping for many more opportunities throughout the next month to enjoy pretty summer dresses before my favorite season for fashion comes to an end.



  1. That grey and white maxi is to die for! I love the look of maxis but, alas, since I'm just a smidgen over five feet tall, they tend to involve more hemming than I'm really willing to do for a piece of clothing. Still - I could make an exception for that one, what a beauty!!

  2. I love all of this so much and am totally snagging some of those Target dresses!
