I’m a huge fan of maxi dresses, especially in the summer. They make getting dressed so easy and I find them much more comfortable than jeans or shorts.
I have bought several maxi dresses lately from Amazon, of all places. After receiving numerous compliments, even from strangers in parking lots, I decided to share my finds with you.

This is the first one I bought:
I bought it to wear during our annual Happyland Music Festival. I’ll just go ahead and admit I bought it primarily for the pockets. I wanted to keep my phone handy for taking pictures and videos so when I saw this one had pockets I had to have it.
I bought it in black because most of my wardrobe is black but also because black usually looks a little dressier. I thought it might be a good choice for travel. I LOVE IT! It’s flattering, comfortable, and easy to wash and dry. It can also be dressed up with heels and nice jewelry for an evening out. This will always be in my suitcase when we travel because of its versatility.
I liked the dress so well, I bought it in this pretty shade of teal a couple of weeks later:
This fall I will probably buy it in dark green and burgundy. I think they will transition well into fall with the addition of a cardigan or a cute scarf. At only $22.99 it’s one of the best clothing buys I’ve found in ages. Almost every time I wear one of these someone comments on it.
The next two dresses were purchased primarily as swimsuit coverups. We are going to Belize again in November and these will be perfect to take along. We basically lived in our swimsuits all week and I’ll be able to throw one of these on over my suit whenever we leave the resort.
In the meantime I’ve been wearing them around the house. Summertime in Oklahoma can be pretty hot but both of these dresses are very lightweight and cool. If I’m not going anywhere and don’t anticipate seeing anyone but David, I wear these without a bra for the ultimate in at-home comfort. I wouldn’t wear them like that in public but they are fine at home and much cuter (and cooler!) than yoga pants. Consider them “house dresses“.
This last one is also a perfect house dress but cute enough to wear to the grocery store, too. The back of it is really cute with criss cross straps.
Believe it or not, all of these dresses are less than $30 each! If you are an Amazon Prime member you can have any of these delivered in two days with free shipping. And if you’re not a Prime member but have been thinking about it, you can do a free 30 day trial. Plus you can get a $10 Amazon credit for downloading the app and logging in. That means you could have any one of these dresses for less than $20.
Do you buy clothing from Amazon? Any favorites to share? I’d love to see your recommendations.
