Printed Maxi Dresses

I wore this over the weekend for a late 30th birthday celebration.  You might remember me saying on Friday that I was going to an indoor trampoline park.  I wore this dress to the trampoline park of course.  It was hard not to flash people while doing flips, but I managed.  Ha.  Okay, obviously NOT, but I did wear it for tacos afterwards.  

I've wanted a printed maxi dress for a long, long time.  I had my eye on this one knowing it'd be perfect with basically every colored cardigan and belt I own, and I knew I could wear it for baby showers, bridal showers, and some summer beach/park weddings.  However, I could not swallow the price tag, so I just drooled over it from afar.  Then lucky me, my husband gave it to me for my birthday!  I still have to hem it, but I just threw on some wedges and wore it anyway because I was so excited about it.  It was a perfect weather kinda day, so it felt appropriate to pair it with a pink belt and a bright yellow cardi!  I think printed maxis are soooo fantastic in the spring and summer, so I'm very excited for this and very grateful to my husband.

There's a bunch of great options below that will be fantastic for summer and can be worn a number of different ways.  Also, another version of this dress without the slit can be found here.

    You look gorgeous! Love this dress on you!

  4. Since my wardrobe is going to need some adjusting this summer (eek!), a printed maxi is one of the must-haves that got added to my shopping list for events and dinners out and such... I adore the pattern you picked (and way to go, husband! Great gift) - it's so pretty on its own or with a lovely colored cardigan, and you know it's going to look super fab dressed down with a denim jacket.

  5. oh my! this dress makes you look so tall! looks great :)

  6. So pretty. I love Maxi dresses!!!! I really like the way you styled it.


  7. Thanks, now I'm in love too. hahaha. Got to find a cheaper version since the Hubs just got me a Clarisonic I've been wanting. I can always count on your blog for inspiration :)

  8. Beautiful dress! I have been trying to find one with a ton of colours in it as well.


  9. Wow! What a gorgeous dress, Audrey! I'm loving the bold colors :) I also have a printed maxi dress (from Old Navy a couple of years ago) and I absolutely love it. You're right that when they have so many colors in them, they're super easy to accessorize and vary the looks of!

  10. What a beautiful print! Big points for the husband... :)


  11. This is gorgeous on you!!! I want to see pictures from the trampoline park!! What!! -♥- Rachel (

  12. What a cute dress! I really need to get more prints in my life. I just picked up two cute (alas, solid) maxi dresses from Gap and Old Navy this morning. Where have they been all my life?

  13. Fabulous dress - love the colors in the pattern. Can't wait to see how you remix it!

  14. It is just gorgeous! Love the print and the colors!

    I love this dress on you! Looking at the model's picture from the link you provided, I wouldn't have even looked twice at it. Seeing it on you, paired PERFECTLY with your soft yellow cardigan and pink belt, I see it in a whole new light and would love a dress like that!! Very pretty birthday dress :)

    I absolutely love that dress. The print is so cute! I actually like all of the dresses you have on here. I just love the prints that are out this season. Every time I go to dress stores I see at least one dress that I like. I even like that they can be belted to show off your waist.
