Summer Is still here :-) and we are getting the odd day of warm weather, which means the maxi dresses we all love to throw on are still kicking around the front of our wardrobes. Don't be scared to wear them as the weather gets cooler but wear them more layered like Amy and myself have! Wear thin knitwear over the top of them or throw on a leather and boot. Were not the floral, pretty maxi dress kind of girls we tend to opt for the more grungier, darker versions so we thought a monochrome maxi post would fit perfectly on our blog and shows that everyone can wear a maxi! I think everything maxi is great, whether it be a maxi skirt or dress I love that in the warmer weather I don't have to get my legs out yet I can still look summery and feel great... All hale the maxis! 

I wore one of my favourite maxi dresses which I actually haven't had chance to wear much since buying it last year, but I feel with the dark, gothic inspired trends for AW it will look great layered up with fur, knitwear and boots. It's part of the Topshop Unique collection from a few years back which I found on eBay. I love the style of it with the high roll neck and long sleeves and the gorgeous woodland print which is so unusual. It's unbelievably flattering and makes me feel like I should be wandering around a enchanted forest! I wore it with my PU gilet from Boohoo which gave it that tough edge but without covering the whole dress - I love that the sleeves still show. The purple hat from Topshop is such a gorgeous colour I feel like it added texture and depth to the outfit. The cross necklaces are all Primark and look great layered up with the different lengths. The boots which are from Deichmann are so unbelievably comfy and look super sexy! I love the studding on the back of them and find them great for running around all day with a manageable heel but still looking on trend. I borrowed Amy's sunnies which are such a fantastic shape and go with every single outfit possible, lastly my studded rucksack from Boohoo which is a fantastic bag- it looks super cool and can fit all my essentials in so I usually don't need to carry my canvas bag with iPad and work stuff in! It finished of this look perfectly and made a dressed up maxi dress look perfect for day wear- it got a grunge makeover.
