Maxi dress – New Look
Necklace – H&M
Lipstick – MAC Costa Chic
I wasn’t in the market for a new maxi dress whilst I was perusing New Look last weekend on the hunt for some basic tees, but you know what I’m like when faced with anything floral. So I found myself abandoning my mission for wardrobe staples and decided to go with a pretty but impractical purchase. I have only been able to wear this dress intermittently between the showers and the sun, but I love it come rain or shine! I think the soft watercolour effect is really sweet and it comes with the slim, tan belt which adds a nice contrast. One thing I have noticed is that I have to hoist the elasticated top half up nice and high otherwise it can go a little puffy and make me look a lot more chesty than I actually am. Not that I’m complaining! The only downside, as with many maxi dresses, is that it is a little long for a shorty like me so it is definitely one to wear with wedges.
I hope you are all well and having great weekends. What have you been buying recently?
