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?

    I have this maxi dress but in a different colour and i love it! I actualy prefer your colour choice better than the one I have though, its so pretty!! I sometimes change mine up and fold the top half down and wear it as a skirt too with different vest tops and strapless tops 🙂 xxx

    I love the look, my fave item has to deffo be the necklace. I first saw the necklace on one of my fave vlogger's videos, but as she wasn't wearing it, I didn't get to appreciate it's full beauty. It looks very unusual and complements your outfit beautifully.

    You look lovely! Very summery and chic. and that necklace is perfect with it!

    I recently bought my first maxi dress when it was hot a couple of weekends ago. Since then it's bloody poured down so I've only worn it once! haha.

    You look so pretty Milly! And the necklace goes with it beautifully 🙂 Aaah yes, I can definitely relate to the maxi dress problem, I think I've had to have all mine tailored so they can fit mini me! lol!
