We all know the LBD and the fact that every girl needs one in her closet. But have you met her dreamy, whimsical (and much more comfortable) cousin: the romantic floral maxi dress. Let’s just call her RFM for short. It’s a summer wardrobe staple – perfect for date nights, showers, summer weddings, and most definitely vacation ready. The inventory for romantic floral maxi’s is plentiful, so I’ve taken one for a test run and narrowed down a few more favorites below. I wore this dress to the Philly launch of my favorite salon, Concihairge, and when we were shooting these photos I joked with Alison, the talent behind all of my photos, that this dress sort of just made me feel unexpectedly carefree. Like, um, where are your 4 kids lady and shouldn’t you be worrying about them or something? Yeah no. For a split second, I just sat on a stoop and felt pretty in a dress. Flowers will do that to you. And for the record half of my kids were with my mom and the other half with my husband so all was well and good. Sometimes mommies need a day out. Twirling in a city street, recommended, but completely optional.
