Thank you for all the lovely feedback on yesterdays summer dress post, it was such a fun one to put together! Now onto another type of frock I get asked about all the time…the maxi dress. A personal fave and something that I live in summer after summer and probably one of the most asked questions I get! Just yesterday I was wearing an H&M maxi that I bought at the end of summer last year and kept getting stopped in the street about it. There is just something about a good maxi, it always seems to work. Maybe it’s the wafting factor, maybe the swishing factor or maybe just because there’s nothing cooler (as in the heat sense) then slipping on something flowy with a good sandal. I’ve been living in mine all week and so today’s post is dedicated the practical yet wonderful maxi!
Whilst I know white isn’t the most practical, I love a bright white maxi for the summer and my latest love is this number from Karen Millen, (which is now on sale!) I don’t often go into Karen Millen but Philippa found this a few months ago and we both absolutely loved it. The monochrome style and easy to wear shape had us sold instantly! I love how this can be dressed down with sandals but I can picture it with a metallic heel and a clutch for a summer event. Or you could lose the slip and wear it open over a bikini as well – oh the options are endless!
