Floral maxi dresses were a major runway trend this season, so I’ve had my eye out for one I can wear to various spring celebrations, events and into the summer. When I came across this maxi dress, I knew it was the one! I love the feminine waist, halter neckline, and it cinches at just the right places to show off my curves, but is still appropriate to wear on a variety of occasions.

I’m always really impressed with the selection of plus size options at Nordstrom. From everyday denim to workwear and special occasion dresses, the plus section is one of the best, so I often find myself returning weekly to shop new arrivals! With this maxi dress in particular, I love the balance of the classic A-line shape and the updated floral print. Best of all, I can easily dress it up or keep it casual with a blocked heel sandal and denim jacket, like I’ve done here for my sister’s recent baby shower. A dress like this is a perfect example of a quality wardrobe addition I’ll be wearing over and over, which makes it one of my ultimate must-haves of the season.
