A few things about living in the high desert in the summer: obviously it is hot, but it is often windy too. Dresses are one of the coolest options but with the wind, they fly up. I am not Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch so Maxi dresses are the way to go. This sort of outfit evokes a carefree summer day.
This crochet lace dress is pretty and summery and has a 70's vibe that I have perpetuated with the amber bead necklace and bone colored espadrilles (from Dillards).
