To the Maxi!


MAXI DRESS PRIMARK | ESPADRILLE'S NEW LOOK | POLAROID ARGOS | SUNGLASSES ASOS | BANGLE ASOS

As a tall gal it's incredibly hard for me to find clothes that fit my long legs well; this goes for trousers, skirts, shorts and even dresses - everything I pick up would look the right length on a normal sized lady but me? Nope, it's 'legs out, all out' time. It may seem like I'm complaining about something a lot of people would kill for but honestly it is a annoying, however the ever faithful (especially this summer) Primark has brought in a maxi that's not only a great print but will also fit a giant like me.

First thing that drew me to the dress was the colours; pretty blues, pinks and purples instantly made me think of holiday and more specifically Greece. As I'm heading to Cyprus (almost Greece, well not really but you know) in just over a week I thought this would be perfect for that. The brown belt also comes with it and cinches your waist in perfectly, so you can still show off your figure - something some maxi dresses don't do!

I decided instead of flip flops or sandals I would put my well worn espadrilles with this dress so you get the idea of wearing it around town or exploring a new country rather than just for lazing on the beach. The polaroid camera was my £50 bargain from Argos and it gives you really great looking photos, the bangle and sunglasses are both from ASOS adding a little something extra to the whole look.

  2. The dress fits you very well!
    I´m a short girl and all the maxi dresses and skirts are too long for my short feet. :(
