Ah, the floral maxi dress. Such a pretty trend, but so challenging to pull off. The wrong cut and you look like you’re wearing a mumu. The wrong print and you like like you’re wearing a nightgown. I’ve been trying on printed maxis all season long and finally found the perfect one. So, why is this Feeling Serene Maxi Dress in Cherry Blossoms from so special?

Feeling Serene Maxi Dress from Modcloth is the perfect printed summer maxi

First, the cut. The wide sleeves and kimono styling make for a balanced silhouette that is sophisticated, classic and very non-pajama. Second, the cherry blossom pattern is floral, but unexpected and not something you see on every dress at the mall. Third, the length is just right. It can be worn with heels, as shown above, or actually can work with flip flops if necessary. And lastly, I just love the bright blue shade. It’s eye catching without being overly obnoxious.



Along with my beloved Cherry Blossom print, the dress is available in three other colors. I was also tempted by Evening, which has a more Japanese vibe.

What to Wear With Your Feeling Serene Maxi Dress:

I accessorized my Feeling Serene dress with gold and pink accessories to complement the colors in the dress. Suggestions include:

Metallic Wedges

Rose gold wedges pair perfectly with a bright blue dress
Rena Rose Gold Espadrille Wedges

($39) from


Ideally, the shoes should add a hint of metallic without distracting from the dress and should give you a bit of height without being overwhelming.

Statement Necklace

(On sale for $69.99, originally $175), from

A statement necklace with pink or rose gold tones echoes the colors of the dress without drawing too much attention away from the print.


Oversized Bling Watch

A Michael Kors watch adds a nice menswear-inspired touch to a feminine outfit.

In order to keep the outfit from going too girly, I added my Michael Kors rose gold watch, which is oversized with a slightly menswear-inspired design.

Suede Purse

This made in Richmond, Va., Awl Snap purse is the perfect size to hold all your essentials.
Awl Snap Large Zip Foldover Crossbody

($189), from

This locally made bag is perfect because it’s a bit larger than your average cross body, so you can throw in a few more essentials (a.k.a. lip glosses if you’re me), but it’s still not so large that you’re carrying a tote bag around. Plus the suede keeps the look less formal.

  2. I’ve been eyeing this dress too! I may have to order it now after seeing how good it looks on you!

    1. I know someone else who bought the black version and wore it when she got engaged. Looked fab I’m her too!
