All maxed out

Just wanted to do a quick post to twirl my most recent purchase in front of you. I have been scouring high and low for a casual maxi dress that didn't flap around my ankles or make me look like a character from a Jane Austen novel.


H&M was the place my search finally ended. This maxi was £12.99 and is available in a whole host of hues: - blue, purple, black and khaki.
I opted for this khaki green colour as the fashion at the moment is heavily influenced by this military green colour,  I've seen it everywhere from shirts to bell bottom shorts, and I really think it is a very wearable, functional and flattering colour. 


Definitely not an ankle flapper - in fact,evidently way too long which is why I had to add the belt so I could hoist it up a  few inches!


I wore this outfit to work today and I really love the look, ultimately because I wear a lot of big tribal-esque faux gold jewellery, and the two combined work in sweet harmony together!
I especially love the diddy pocket detail on the left breasticle area!





What are your musings on maxi dresses??

You look fabulous, as usual, and i am so getting that dress, i love it.
It's such a lovely shape at the bottom, not to drab but not too flouncy!
Perfect again Milly :)

I'm loving maxi dresses at the moment - & now I've risked trying a daytime, casual maxi, I'll never go back - I love it!
I've got that same dress as you, but in black. I bought it months & months ago, when I was still trying to make my mind up if I liked them or not - but at the time it was £7.99 so figured I couldn't go wrong - I noticed today in H&M that they've put them all up to £12.99 - cheeky! (still a bargain though)

love the outfit

steph0188 said...

How do you pull those chav tastic earings off? they look amazing on you.
I really like these plain vest maxi dresses, I got one from Asda (how I love it there, hehe) I think they can be dressed up or down really easily and even though I love a good floral pattern it is a bit OTT on the maxi dress front I think.
stunning as always Milly Mooxxx

The material is light weight and stretchy for a snug fit. Good quality for a good price. I bought 6 of them I liked them that much. I would recommended tie dye CD110 5.4 Oz
