Maxi Dress c/o Boohoo, Topshop Paisley Lace Roll Neck Crop Top, Topshop Crochet Crop Jumper, Topshop Sunglasses, Freedom For Topshop Eagle Necklace, Vintage Bag via Notting Hill Market, Topshop Amelie Boots
As someone infamous for their rather large collection of short shorts, it's no surprise that I haven't actually worn a maxi dress since my Prom back in 2007. 6 years down the line, I felt the maxi deserved to come into my new, grown up take on fashion and I have not regretted it a single second. Maxi's have always been a favourite with expecting mothers due to the 'cover-all' aspect whilst their bodies are changing but the maxi really flatters everyone, it's just about finding the right shape and pattern to suit your own style.
This monochrome floral number from Boohoo.com seemed like the perfect transitional piece to take me through summer into autumn and the best way to introduce the maxi back into my wardrobe without steering too far away from my own style. The elastic is in the perfect place to flatter my waist and strappy detail means its perfect to wear alone when its warm or to layer up all the way through the cold.
For this look, I have done yet another look inspired by the trend 'Dark Craft' playing on the dark florals as the centre peace and adding other key elements from the trend like the lace roll neck, leather bag and studded boots to finish off :)
