My fashion lusts this week

It would appear I have been living in maxi dresses for much of the last week. They’re brilliant because they can take you from day to night with a slight change of shoes and jewellery. And they hide a multitude of sins – i.e. ICE CREAM! With this weather, I can’t resist a big old choc ice and as maxi dresses tend to be looser around the tummy area it’s not a problem!!

The high street has a huge range at the moment and given that the gorgeous weather is set to continue for a while yet, it’s wise to stock up!

This beauty is from Zalando and is only £23 (with free shipping).  The neckline is very flattering for pear shaped people like me and I just love the bright neon colour – it almost makes me look like I have a tan!

only maxi dress

To avoid dodgy tan lines, I also recommend a strapless maxi dress.  I purchased a black one years ago and it’s proven to be a fantastic investment.  And with the wide choice available today, the good news is that you don’t need to make an investment – here’s one from New Look for only £16.99!


For workwear, sandals and flipflops aren’t always appropriate so it’s best to opt for a longer maxi dress that you can pair with higher heels or wedges.

I love the print on this dress from Dorothy Perkins.  The colours will work well for blondes and brunettes and it is a steal at £30.


I just love this red maxi from Oasis. I would recommend pairing it with a pair of gold heeled sandals and some simple yet bold gold jewellery. It’s only £28.


Finally, isn’t this Izabel London dress gorgeous?? I absolutely love it and feel it may be one to wear at a wedding later this year! Only £24!!!


Happy shopping! xx
