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: One Wish

Outfit Image

I can’t believe how fast this year is going. Half of the year is gone already. Looking at how fast the year is going makes me reflect on how the year has been for me so far. I am happy with where I am at, I have ticked off many things I wanted to achieve this 2016, but there is still a lot to be done, and with little time left, I better get cracking!

I wore this outfit some days ago. I had some errands to run and I wanted a smart but casual outfit, and this made sense to me. You may remember this top from the ‘What is in my Spring/Summer Bag’ post. This is my first time wearing it and I love it. It is so summery and it is a great piece to wear on a warm day. I will definitely be taking this top with me for the holidays.

It has been raining for days now, with some sunny spells in between. Doesn’t quite feel like summer anymore but doesn’t feel like autumn or spring either. It just feels blahhh.

My hay fever on the other hand, has gone from bad to HORRIBLE. My eyes are so sore from all the scratching, eye drops and ice blocks. I have been unable to wear my contact lenses for days. The only thing giving my eyes some relief are the ice blocks. I have tried all sorts, and nothing seems to be working. I can’t wait for this season to pass, so I can have my life back. If I had 1 wish, it will be for me to enjoy the summer season in my little countryside village without the hay fever. Is that too much to ask?

On the bright side, I have been loving Orange is the New Black Season 4 on Netflix. I have watched about 5 episodes now, and I am planning to binge watch the remaining episodes this week. This new season is funny and crazy, just like the previous seasons. Have you been watching? What do you think of the new season?
