Making a floral maxidress more casual with a chambray shirt

It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this floaty floral maxi (which you can see on its own here in this post). I have worn this floral maxi a couple of times for fancier occasions, but this time, I decided to make it more casual with a chambray button-front shirt. (And yes, it’s still summer up here in the PNW, and I wore this on a sunny and warm day.)

By the way, we took these photos on our back steps, which had definitely seen better days! Basically right after we took these photos, we worked on replacing those steps — yep, with me and my husband doing all the work — so these photos are the last remnants of what our back steps used to look like! (The new steps are now stained red, like the posts in the railing and our fence.)

This dress is so fun! I love how the overlay with all the flowers is sheer, so it creates interesting depth and shapes when I move. And the v-neck on this dress is deep, so I wore the maxi over a black sports bra, as per my usual clothing layering trick.
