Heading on a beach holiday? Make sure you have a boho maxi dress (or three) packed in your suitcase.
Versatile, comfy and cuter than a blue-eyed husky puppy (well…almost), a boho maxi dress is pretty much my ultimate wardrobe staple for my Tropical Australian lifestyle.
As Australia moves into Summer and those in the Northern Hemisphere start planning beach escapes to tropical climes, I share my stunning Hale Bob*printed maxi dress.
Ladies prepare your hallelujah choruses, I may have just found my new fave boho maxi dress….

However, the stunning bohemian print on this Hale Bob Aria Maxi Dress * made my heart leap from my chest Looney Toons style.This beautiful boho maxi dress is made of ranyon, which makes it cool and comfy in the tropical heat. Jake asked me how I walk in maxi dresses without falling flat on my face (gotta love men) and I explained to him that the cute slit detail on the front of this maxi dress makes it a total breeze.
What makes this bohemian maxi really stand out is that stunning mixed print. Panels of white floral-dotted fabric pop from the main blue and beige print in a way that really enhances and flatters the female figure. With prints like this, it’s no surprise that Hale Bob’s pieces are popular with the likes of Heidi Klum and Halle Berry.
To rock a boho maxi dress for a beach holiday, I recommend pairing with cute pom pom sandals that bring out some of the lesser occurring hues in the print.Although a plain clutch bag may be a safer option, I went a little bonkers and added a printed clutch. For a fail-safe, on-trend look, I recommend adding this seasons must-have bag into the equation: the basket bag.I wore this dress for a casual lunch date with the other half at Palm Cove. Me being the piggy I am, suggested getting Mexican food, only to become an eye-watering mess at how darn spicy my nachos were.
Note to self: tell waitress that I cannot handle spice.
Luckily, I cooled down with a yummy gelato and spent the rest of the afternoon prancing around feeling like a total boho queen in this dreamy creation.
Dear Aria dress, you are sincerely invited on many beach dates and tropical getaways with me and the other half. Plus, you have the same name as characters off two of my fave shows, “Game of Thrones” and “Pretty Little Liars”, so I think it’s fate 😉
