Colorful Maxi Dresses

Hey everyone! Unfortunately for me I was sick today, probably a result of being worn down from school/internship/life. I definitely think it's important that when we know we are sick, we don't ignore our symptoms and take care of ourselves, especially while in college. It's so easy to get sick during college (trust me, I live with 55 girls...illnesses spread fast!), and it always seems to be when we are the most busy! Thankfully though, I've had the chance to regroup, rest and get a lot accomplished, including a new post featuring my good friend Emma for Stylin' Iowan :)

I'm in love with all of the colors in this maxi dress! There are so many neon yellow/pink/purple pieces out in stores right now, and I feel that this dress does neon right, without it being overwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I love neon! I just think it can be overdone quite easily. A little neon goes a long way!

Below is a message from Emma about this outfit and her own personal style:

"My name is Emma and I am a Social Work major at the University of Iowa. As you can see from this outfit, I am a huge fan of the maxi dress! I love the way you can dress it up for an event or wear it casually to class or lunch with friends. Nothing like a cute but also comfortable option to wear to a variety of different things! I also love chunky, colorful necklaces! These are so fun and really add to an already cute outfit.
When I am shopping, I look for staple items that are cute, versatile, and comfortable! I love stores like Target, Gap, Old Navy, and Forever 21 that have clothes that you can wear for lots of different occasions at a reasonable price! In stores, neutrals usually catch my eye but I love to spice them up with colorful accessories."

How do most of you feel about all the neon trending right now? I'm interested to know your thoughts! Make sure to comment below, or tweet me @StylinIowan!
