Desert Gypsy Vibes | Macy’s Max Studio

Posted on 2 m read

***Special thanks to Macy’s Max Studio for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Some of my favorite styles to wear in the spring and summer time include flowy oversized silhouettes with femme details. When I came across this beautiful dress from Max Studio’s line at Macy’s, I knew I had to have it! The unique embroidery and ruffle detailing make this gorgeous number a must-have during the warm months. The loose fit allows me to stay comfortable in the sweltering heat.

 Maxi dresses like this one are perfect for days when you want to look done up but don’t want to put in too much effort in putting together an outfit. I can just slip this one on and be out the door in a minute! Since this silhouette has so much going on, I don’t HAVE to wear a ton of accessories to feel complete. I let the embroidery and ruffle embellishments do the work for me!

For reference, I’m wearing a size XS and the fit of this dress is still pretty loose on me. Granted, I have a super small body frame but I recommend sizing down if you are in-between sizes. The length is absolutely perfect on me though, and hits at the top of the feet. For a relaxed look, this dress is beautiful with a pair of simple sandals. I opted for some extra sophistication and chose to wear my favorite espadrille wedges.

To complete the look, I’m wearing a tan structured bag also from Macy’s, and some fun jewelry I have lying around at home. Can we say, major desert gypsy vibes?!

What are some fail-safe styles you enjoy in the warmer months?

    What a beautiful dress! It definitely fits perfectly with your desert lifestyle too. I actually prefer looser fitting maxis for summer so I will have to check this one out 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Hi hun! Darn I’ve missed you. I’m on a one week break at home (doing laundry, picking up parcels, all that fun stuff…) and it’s so good to see you blooming in that beautiful hobo chic dress from Macy’s as I’ve truly missed my little Gypsy Queen of the desert. It sounds so effortless to pull on and still look elegant and although it doesn’t need accessorizing I still think that turquoise necklace fits the style perfectly! Hope to be able to check back on your blog soon enough again babe! 🙂
    xoxo

    So much yes to this dress! I’m completely obsessed. There’s something about WHITE maxi dresses that just get me. They also show off tan skin so well – which makes it perfect for you. I love the bohemian style and the simplicity to this particular dress. It’s perfect for dressing up or down! Love!

    • Sharon Wu
      July 9, 2017

      Thanks babe! Yes, I do think that white pieces make me look especially tan! Haha

    More like a desert goddess! This is one of the prettiest maxi dresses I’ve seen all season, and yes, it is sophisticated and doesn’t look too done either. I love the close ups of the turquoise necklace, I need to pull out my turquoise accessories out too!

    First off, you look amazing! Your hair is fading out so nicely! I love the ruffle detail on this dress. It’s so perfect for the daytime and the necklace is such a beautiful finishing touch! I agree about maxi dresses being so effortless. The best part of hot weather are the endless summer dresses. 🙂

    I’m getting all of the boho vibes from this look!! It’s so cute and I love the embroidery on this dress! It’s absolutely stunning and I think you’ve done an amazing job at stying it! The little bag reminds me of the new Chloe bag, but this is a cute little satchel alternative!

    I’m normally not the biggest fan of maxi dresses, but I’d actually wear this one! It’s such a lovely color combo and style for summer and the loose fit is my favorite part!

      I think you’d rock this one babe! Maxis are my fave because when it’s hot out (which is everyday out here in the desert) the last thing I want to do is think about what to wear lol. Maxis are easy to throw on and you can be out on your way!

    What a gorgeous maxi dress you’re wearing, babe!!! Forever loving all of your looks & beautiful photos, of course <3
