Maxi Dresses & #Passion4Fashion LinkUp

This year i have been wearing more knee length dresses and the midi length. But every now and again a maxi dress catches my eye and makes me love it from top to toe.
This dress is from Closet London, a brand i have shopped many a dress from over the years and they never fail to to please me.
Designed and made in London Closet London has made me love Maxi dresses again with a vengance. I think i now *need* this one desperately in my life for autumn/winter. Can you imagine it with tights boots and a biker jacket?! Divine!
But for now i've been soaking up the last few rays of sunshine with the family and enjoying the last weeks of summer (note: as i type its actually like autumn outside, so when i say weeks, i probably should say random few days of summer)

So back to the outfit, loving green right now which probably stems from my khaki obsession that's been going on for the best part of the year. The print on this maxi dress is just all kinds of wonderful, and super flattering. It hid my huge Taco food baby a treat. The split up the side also means i can walk freely, unlike some other maxi dresses where i feel all kinds of restricted and walking becomes some kind of tricky agility task.
I added in a maxi cardi and some black comfy sandals and bag then finished off with the new khaki dreamy necklace from Yosa that looks like it was actually made for this dress, don't ya think?














Sandals: Next
Cardigan: Warehouse
Bag: Matalan

We also had a little impromptu family photo sesh as we were all out together and happy as our bellies were full from our scrumptious meal.
Love these guys!!





Do you wear maxi dresses often? or are you a shorter length kinda gal?

  10. What a gorgeous dress! I love maxi dresses/skirts on other people, but not on me. They just make me look frumpy for some odd reason.
