I had a bit of an obsessive idea that I wanted a maxi dress for winter. That’s the thing about capsule wardrobes, you really do think through every single piece.
Having loved wearing maxi’s all summer, I knew I wanted to continue in that same vane and have something pretty long and floaty, but could be layered, for the colder months. Thankfully the clothing gods heard my prayers as there are a lot of wintery maxi’s on the market at the moment (post coming next week!). So i window shopped for about 2 months before finally settling on this one from Zara, and I am so glad I did because I absolutely adore it. The comfy fabric, the dark yet floral print, the button down front and the pocket(!!) all make this my absolute perfect dress. I’ve worn it a few times already and know that any ‘nice occasion’ that may arise, this will be my go-to dress.
The fact that it’s comfy, hides a food baby and is flattering also makes me love it all the more.
I paired it with my trusty Vegan biker jacket (that I also recently got for my capsule) by Blank denim via Shopbop..( Who incidentally have the most epic 25% off sale on at the moment, be sure to have a shop, i mean look, if you’re in the market for something as it ends very soon!) and it appears that it may have to be surgically removed from my back, as every day it is the only jacket i want to wear. I love how a biker jacket adds that little bit of ‘edgy’ to any outfit. Also the fact that its a vegan jacket also makes me love it all the more. I’m a vegan inside and out *big smiley face*.
I can’t wait to remix this gorgeous dress with some thick tights, knee high boots and a big chunky knitted sweater over the top, so the dress instantly becomes a skirt.
Do you own any winter maxi’s? If not would you try one?
