Outfit Post – How to wear a maxi dress

I usually shy away from maxi dresses because I struggle to find the right fit. As a petite woman, finding the right maxi dress to suit my body shape can be a struggle sometimes. When the opportunity came for me to pick a River Island dress to style, I decided to go outside my style comfort zone, and go for a maxi dress. I am a huge fan of River Island pieces, especially their jeans. They are all I wear. So I was sure I would find the right maxi dress to suit my shape. And I did. I found this stunning Beige Flute Sleeve Sequin Maxi Dress and it was the right fit!

This stunning dress is simply beautiful. I love the fact that it is not body hugging. It is such a comfy piece to wear. The sequin embellishment is a beauty to behold. And so is the lace up v neck and side split. The style of this maxi dress is great for my body shape and with heels, it is the perfect length too!  Styling this lovely dress was dead easy. The dress has the “wow” factor already, so it was best to let it do all the talking. Nothing else should compete with this sort of dress, so all accessories and jewellery wear kept at a minimum. I am so in love with this sequin dress. It is definitely a great party dress. I can see myself wearing this beauty to an event/party.

When it comes to styling maxi dresses, I think it works best when there is a waist-defining design to it. Which is why this River Island maxi dress works great because the tie waist keeps the waist defined.

What do you think of this outfit? Are you a fan of maxi dresses?

OOTD: I Can Smell Spring

Spring Outfit Image

A change in season is always a big deal, as far as fashion is concerned, because we fashion lovers get to rearrange our wardrobe and usher in pieces for the new season. I love spring because it has the perfect temperature, not too warm or too cold, but it is the endless rain that comes along with it, I don’t like too much. I also love the fact that I can still layer up light pieces in spring. This weather makes styling outfits a lot of fun.

This black dress by Accessorise is a lovely addition to my spring wardrobe. It is a Lace Insert Tassel Maxi Dress and it is my only maxi dress at the moment, not had one in ages. This versatile piece is the perfect maxi dress. It creates an effortlessly chic look, and the elasticated waistband with adjustable tasselled ties, means the sizing is quite flexible too, which is great for petite ladies.

I love the fact that this piece is so easy to style up with a jacket and high heels like I have done here, or dress down with flats for a walk on a beach.

Speaking of beaches, I am badly in need of a proper holiday. It feels like I havn’t had one in ages. In an ideal situation, I would want to visit Dubai again. I visited the beautiful country some years ago and it was the best holiday I ever had, followed closely by my Miami holiday. The issue is, flights are so expensive these days, it is almost impossible to go away nice, so I always end up visiting a country in EU, but let’s see how it goes, fingers and toes crossed. Do you have any holidays planned for the year? Where are you off to?
