unique and different is the next generation of beautiful.

You can never go wrong with a good maxi dress. Maybe this is why I seem to have so many of them hanging in my closet! Simple and casual, but effortlessly elegant, the maxi dress has become a Spring/Summer staple. With the warmer weather finally here, I am eager to wear some of my favourite maxi dresses from last year - including a slinky leopard print one that I always feel like a million bucks in.

Since I am on a maxi dress high at the moment, I thought I would create the look I would most love to wear. (I am on the hunt for the perfect chevron print maxi dress....can you tell?) This outfit is all about bold colours and patterns, neutral accessories, and a fun and sexy lip colour.


So, there you have it - my perfect Spring outfit. If you're loving maxi dresses the way that I am, let me know how you like to accessorize them!

What do you think of this maxi dress look?

  3. I'm always afraid that a maxi dress will make me look like I'm wearing a mumu. But maybe I'll think twice next time and actually try one on next time. Thanks for the inspiration.

  27. I adore maxi dresses but I'm yet to find one that I can pull off... I'm rather short and I find it just sort of trails along the floor far more than its supposed to!

    If you fancy popping by to say hello I'm running a MAC giveaway over at my blog http://haul-oholic.blogspot.no/

    Toodles for now x
