I think it's pretty, but if you're concerned about it being too bright, there are tons of maxi-dresses around right now, you could probably find a great one that's a bit less bright. I bought a really nice one at Dress Barn last week, to wear to a wedding. I know, Dress Barn has some stuff that's a bit old-lady, but they did have a lot of nice maxis.

I also saw a huge rack of maxis at TJ Maxx.
