A Black Maxi Dress You Can Wear All Summer

Daily Dose

As a brand new mama who’s trying to get back to postpartum self, the only clothing I’m even mildly interested in this summer are all things lightweight dresses, and lucky for me, Nordstrom has no shortage of just that!
I recently added this halter neck, tiered maxi dress to my line-up and have essentially been living in it ever since. It’s the most lightweight black summer dress, and the halter top is so flattering along with the square neckline. The breeziness of this long black maxi dress for summer is perfect, too— I can wear it first thing in the morning when the temperatures are just bearable and it transitions perfectly into the 100º heat of the day.
I paired this awesome Brixton Jo Straw Rancher Hat with the look to ensure some shade and an added element of style. This hat is the perfect trendy summer hat, in my opinion. To finish off the look based around the black tiered dress, I opted for my new favorite summer slides. I love how easily this flat is elevated just by looks alone but still serves as a super comfortable slide you can wear all day! They’re available in a white and rose color, but I went with the natural fabric (side note, I did have to break these in!).
There’s no such thing as too much shade in the summer, so I wore one of my favorite pairs of sunglasses, Dior’s Steillaire 59mm Square cut in the endura gold and blue combination. They’re incredibly lightweight and just look so cool, so if you’re wanting to treat yourself to some seriously stylish sunnies this summer, I highly recommend these! If you are looking for something a little less expensive for the same look, this pair is great!
This entire look, top to bottom, is the perfect summer weekend look – run errands, break for lunch, and meet back up for cocktails!

Big thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post!
