Printed Maxi Dress

I can't think of a better summer to fall transition piece than a maxi dress!  I actually never owned a maxi dress until this year, but I have purchased two this summer and they are both quickly becoming favorite go-to pieces.  I visited New Orleans two weekends ago to celebrate the birthdays of two dear friends, and had a chance to do a little shopping on Sunday afternoon before my evening flight home.  Strolling in and out of the boutiques in the French Quarter was so much fun, and the striking patterns on this dress caught my eye immediately.  I just love the combination of the tribal print on top plus the dark animal print on the skirt!  It was warm enough this weekend to wear this printed maxi dress by itself, but as we transition to cooler evenings I can easily add a denim jacket and ankle boots for warmth.
