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?

Dress: c/o Closet London

Sandals: Next

Cardigan: Warehouse

Bag: Matalan

Khaki & Cream Necklace: Yosa

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?

    Rachel – so many things to say!! I've made a list, hehe:

    1. I love the print of the maxi and you're right, the Yosa necklace was made for it
    2. I too am starting to get back into maxis this year, they're so easy for just throwing on
    3. Love the red nails as a contrast
    4. Your hair is looking far too gorgeous
    5. Love the photos of the whole family!! All so natural in front of the camera (Neo's posing is top class)
    6. Thank you for hosting the link up
    7. Have a fantastic weekend, sweetie 🙂

    Lots of love to you all

    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.

    I LOVE me a fabulous maxi and yours is gorg + so fab with the extra long cardigan. Also, hehe, yes food baby, love that perk too!! 😉

    I think maxi dresses/skirts are so comfortable and chic but surprisingly I don't have many in my closet! I need to work on that! I love the one you are wearing. And your family is super cute 🙂
