The maxi dress

I admit I have struggled with the maxi dress. I have a couple of lovely jersey Splendid dresses that I wear on vacation, but I tend to feel too ‘dressed up’ in them for everyday wear. That is until I tried this H&M dress. I was actually really surprised how much I like it. Maybe it’s the sheer lower half that helps – I don’t feel too covered up if that makes sense!? I also love the colors and the pattern. It’s got a little stretch in it so it is really comfortable to wear. Dressed down with sneakers it is a great day dress. It’s now on sale at $29.99, reduced from $59.99.

Here are some other maxi dresses I am now tempted to try! I may be hooked!

This dress is also H&M and beautiful – very Grecian!

This Mango dress is stunning – I love the colors and it’s sheerness.

Mango printed dress

This is also Mango and stunning – I love the back detail. As a side note – I have the sandals in this image and they are gorgeous, I love the thong toe.

Mango again – the embroidery on this is lovely. I also really like the length. I love how they have styled it with the black sandals – perfect.

Back to H&M – unfortunately this is sold out online here in the US but I will be trying to track it down in store and checking for returns online – it is so elegant and just $24.99.

This dress is so Marrakech – I think I can also convince myself it’s perfect for Istanbul this year with the covered arms.

So do you do maxis or not? I’d love to hear where you them down!

    Oh I love the dress that you have on. I see it and I walk past as I know it just doesn’t fit little ol’ me. I need to grow another few inches!

      It is so comfortable too – I love the little stretch in it. I just think it’s going to be to hot to wear it soon – sorry to rub it in 😉 xx
