I don't want to toot my own fashion horn here, but I like to think that I can pull off (or at least look decent) in a variety of different summer trends--boyfriend shorts, espadrilles, etc. However, one fashion trend that seems to be consistently popular each summer that I just can't bring myself to love is the maxi dress

I've seen them everywhere this summer! Target, Gap, Banana Republic, Nordstroms, etc. and I've seen tons of people already wearing them at random places, like the pool, running errands or shopping.
