It's no question that the easiest way to go high impact during summer is with a maxi dress. It just adds a certain amount of drama to your look that really, nothing else can. But there's another reason I love wearing them that has nothing to do with impact, really, and that's that they are just hands down the most comfortable thing you could wear - they're breezy, lightweight, and provide full range of motion.
Full range enough to climb a mountain (slash pile of rocks) so that you can have a moment bonding with the elements as you watch the sun set and think meta thoughts. And full range enough for you to manipulate your body in awkward positions after you realize that climbing up said mountain (slash pile of rocks) was a lot easier that getting back down.
Hope your weekend is full of adventure!
