Spring & Summer Maxi Dresses from Nordstrom Rack

April 14, 2022
Post Sponsored by Nordstrom Rack

With Easter fast approaching, I think we all can agree that warm weather will indeed arrive soon…even if it’s still cold or even snowy outside today. So I’m getting ready for outdoor entertaining, back porch relaxing and even brunching and lunching alfresco with Nordstrom Rack. I’ve found some easy, breezy spring and summer maxi dresses from this favorite retailer that I can’t wait to share with you.

cotton blend drawstring waist maxi dress

Maxi dresses are really trending this year. This is great news for those of us who enjoy wearing dresses, but don’t feel particularly great about our legs. I’ve selected three lovely spring and summer maxi dresses in three different colors and silhouettes.

Easy Breezy Spring and Summer Dresses

And this soft, oh so comfortable cotton blend drawstring waist maxi dress is perfect for back porch entertaining or just relaxing around your home. And of course you can wear it out and about, too. The cotton blend maxi dress comes in a couple of other equally soft and charming colors. It fits true to size.

Eileen Fisher espadrille wrap sandals

I finished off this one-and-done outfit with these lovely Eileen Fisher espadrille wrap sandals. These designer brand espadrilles would be out of my price zone, but at Nordstrom Rack I consistently find the brands I love at more affordable prices, up to 70% off. These espadrilles come in a few other colors, but I’m wearing the latte, which is closest to my skin tone. They run true to size.

Simple Maxi Dress

To head out to brunch with friends in this cornflower blue cotton blend maxi dress, I’d take along this Caslon classic denim jacket. It’s lighter weight than my other one, so it’s perfect for spring and summer. I also like that it has a bit of stretch in it. The denim jacket runs true to size and comes in two different washes.

When I want to add accessories to my outfits, I immediately think of Nordstrom Rack. They have great prices on designer brand shoes, handbags, hats and jewelry. So I can pull together a complete look without busting my budget.

Matt and Nat handbag
Matt & Nat flap hobo bag

This Matt & Nat flap hobo bag is such a pretty mojito green, but it also comes in a lovely lake blue. This faux leather bag has an adjustable strap, so I can carry it as a crossbody while shopping a favorite antique store or wear it close under my arm while heading to the restaurant.

center seam slub tank dress

Honestly, I think this Center Seam Slub Tank Dress is my favorite of the three I’m sharing today. And that surprised me since I’m not all that fond of my upper arms.

But when it comes to looking pretty and feeling good in an easy summer dress, I just can’t resist this magenta pink center seam slub tank dress. I think the silhouette of this 100% slub cotton dress is surprisingly flattering. It runs true to size and comes in two other spring-worthy colors, too.

I completed this look with some flesh toned sandals by Naturalizer. They are sooo comfortable. These Naturalizers are similar and available at Nordstrom Rack. Truly comfortable footwear can be so expensive, but at Nordstrom Rack I always find the brands that deliver both comfort and style at affordable prices. Check out more of their spring and summer sandals in well known comfort brands here.

Slub Tank Midi Dress

I also got my pretty gold jewelry at Nordstrom Rack. In fact, I was able to buy higher quality pieces than I would elsewhere because they always have better values at Nordstrom Rack. My medallion necklace is gold plated and looks substantial and elevated. And my paper clip necklace is gold plated sterling silver. It’s a great everyday necklace for spring and summer. My earrings are no longer available, but I have these Kendra Scott earrings and love them. And, while my bracelet set is also no longer available, I think these similar bracelets are just as pretty.

black tiered maxi dress

Now you know how much I love wearing black. And I’ve found that during the summer nothing looks quite as date-night-ready as a black dress and a classic denim jacket.

Black Dress and Denim Jacket
black tiered maxi dress // Sam Edelman Vena wedge slide sandal // Trina Turk floral canvas tote bag // wide plastic hoop earrings

This black tiered maxi dress has a lovely drape and a slightly elevated feel, thanks to the 95% polyester, 5% spandex blend fabric composition. It doesn’t wrinkle at all and has just a bit of sheen.

Black Maxi Dress

I also wore black sandals with my dress. These Sam Edelman Vena wedge slide sandals are comfortable with just the slightest heel. They also come in a gold/beige mixture and an almond patent leather. They fit true to size.

Sandals and Tote

Because I was shopping Nordstrom Rack, I was able to find a trending Trina Turk floral canvas tote bag. I love how this large colorful floral canvas tote adds some brightness and texture to my outfit.

I also added a pop of color and brightness with my bold plastic hoop earrings. I’ve learned that, since I don’t especially want to draw a lot of attention to my neck, wearing statement earrings is smarter for me than adding a statement necklace. Plus they bring the attention up to my eyes, where I prefer it. These plastic hoop earrings are lightweight and come in other fun colors, too.

Blessed for My Day

I have good news, and I have bad news. Which do you want first? Don’t you just hate that preamble? I don’t like bad news. But when the good news cancels out the bad, well that’s different! And that’s exactly the case in Romans chapter 3 of the Bible.

Paul reminds us that, bad news, all of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Make no mistake about it, people are not generally good. We are all sinners in desperate need of a savior. And the good news? Blessedly, it absolutely cancels out the sorrow of the bad news. For we all have the opportunity to be made right with God because of His lavish grace shown to us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Now that is good news. And that is why we approach Good Friday with the weight of the bad news, but also with the reassuring hope of the good news. Amen!

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. ~ Romans 3:23-24

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  1. Hi Kay- Love this Blog with all the beautiful maxi dresses- only problem is, I’m not able to pin any of the photos to Pinterest. Is there a way to do this? Thank You!

    1. I will bring that to the attention of my website developers today. Thank you for the heads up. I’m glad you enjoyed the website otherwise. 🥰

    2. Hi again Lorna, I’m seeing the Pinterest buttons on the photos when I view the website on my computer and my phone. Maybe clear your browser and then load the website again? See if that helps. They should be there for you.

      1. Hi Kay- I closed my browser and rebooted my computer, but had no success. I am able to save off your Pinterest sight and also other blog sights. I Love your Blogs, and have been following you for some time and saving many inspirational photos to my Pinterest. Today was the first day I encountered this problem. I use Chrome…don’t know if this would change anything, since you are not encountering this issue. I’ll keep trying and hopefully figure this out. Thanks for your help. Lorna

        1. Hi Lorna, I use Chrome, too. I really have no idea what the problem could be. How do you normally save them to Pinterest? Do you normally see a little Pinterest logo show up in the top left corner? That’s where I’m seeing it. I’ll look into it, but I don’t think anything has changed on my end with Pinterest. The plugin is still installed and working.

          1. Hi Kay- Tried again this morning, and I see the Pinterest logo is now finally showing up in the left hand margin of the page…Yay! Don’t know what happened overnight, but problem solved! Thanks again for all your help and for your wonderful Blogs and YouTube videos! They are so inspirational and helpful! Just Love them!

  2. Love the blessed for my day today, Praise the Lord for His sacrifice! Truly good news for us indeed!!!! New website looks great and I really like these maxi dresses 😍

  3. I am madly in love in the pink dress. I would wear until it fell apart. Too bad Nordstrom Rack doesn’t ship to Canada. I will check at Nordstrom Canada and see if I can luck out. I thought of a topic you could consider. UV protective clothes. You and I share BCC diagnosis and I am sure we are both avoiding the sun but sometimes I want to go out and “play”. I have purchased a couple brands while on vacation but wonder what is out there in the regular stores and what does your dermatologist think of them. Mine said good BUT still wear sunscreen 30 minimum under it.

  4. Kay! I love your new page! Just now checking it all but love it already! Your outfits are darling for spring and summer. 💕💕💕💕

  5. Love the new blog design Kay! It looks fantastic! And such cute dresses too. Wishing so much that our weather would warm up!

  6. Hi, Kay. Congratulations on your new website. Really looks nice. I liked the way that you introduced yourself and that photo of youwith the beige and black outfit is perfect. Thanks for your continuing good work and encouragement.

  7. Hi Kay, the website refresh looks nice. Just one change I noticed that I miss. I used to be able to see the date of each post without actually clicking on the post but now I don’t. Since I often visit blogs just once or twice a week, I like being able to see at a glance which posts I’ve already read based on the date.

    1. Hello Alison, That is one of the fixes that is already in the works. Thanks. The designer should have that done by Tuesday at the latest.

  8. I may be a few days late reading this post, but I want you to know how much I like the new look. All three of your dresses are great! I did not know that I should sign into my Nordy account when shopping at Nordstrom Rack, so thanks for sharing that tidbit with us. And what a fabulous BFMD!

    1. Wonderful! I’m glad you learned something new, Ginger. thanks for letting me know. Have a great weekend.
