During the summertime, a black maxi is a closet staple. I've had multiple black maxi's over the years, but have found a new favorite from Jarrett Bay. It's the very first in my closet to ever have pockets! The Supima Cotton makes it so soft and breathable - even for hot and humid North Carolina days. It'll be a great piece to bring to the beach and throw over a bathing suit. I wore mine most recently to a business meeting with a color-blocked silk scarf tied around my neck; I felt so comfortable and laid-back. Summer is all about easy living, and I know this dress will fit right in with all my summer plans.
