Maxi Dress #ootd + Berry Kombucha Sangria Recipe

I wore this maxi to a barbecue recently. While we still have warm weather in the northeast, I’m trying to get as much mileage out of my sundresses as possible before it’s time to pull out the boots. summer maxi w  I found this floor length sheer maxi on clearance at Urban Outfitters. I love that it’s comfy, light, and airy (perfect for an all day bbq). floral maxi dress w  My panama hat (which I found at J.Crew) is also another great buy. I couldn’t find this one on sale, but for the amount I wear this in both the summer and fall, it’s worth the price. maxi dress w  I finished the look with a few jewelry details, including this great Free People necklace. The look is simple, casual and will transition well into the fall (swap the sandals for ankle boots and add a slouchy cardi). How are you transitioning your summer clothes into fall?   free people necklace w  Dress: Urban Outfitters/ Sandals: Anthropologie/ Hat: J.Crew/ Necklace: Free People urban outfitters maxi dress w  If I’ve peaked your interest with the Berry Kombucha Sangria, the recipe is simple:
