What I’m living in this summer…

Friday 22 June 2012

Ah! The mighty maxi dress and maxi skirt! Aren’t they lovely? They are stylishly on-trend, keep you cool in the hot muggy months (still waiting for them) and they can hide any manner of abdominal-lack-of-exercise-evils quite nicely indeed. It took me some time to get over feeling a little too ‘mumsy’ wearing them but that is easily rectified by a pair of beautiful sandals, badass shades and my personal favourite, a denim jacket. I’ve got to say, this has got to be my favourite summer look.

What’s your favourite summer look?

  2. Oh yes, a long skirt and a fitted, cropped denim jacket certainly takes you through summer (when we eventually get it!)LOL:)

  3. agreed - love the maxi dress and skirt. i'm also loving all the mint. can't get enough of that color.

  4. I love maxi dresses/skirt and jean jacket combos. Will definitely rock those this summer. And I'm also a big fan of cut off jeans with a white tee combined with cute sandals for summer. Happy weekend!

  5. I'm a huge fan of maxis but it is way too damn hot here to wear jackets. I've never tried a maxi skirt before but an inspired now...

  6. Now I wish I had a denim jacket. And a maxi skirt.
    But seriously, I find that denim jackets go well with almost anything and are great for chillier summer nights.


  7. Such a great staple to have for the summer months. I love the jean jacket with it.

  8. Love this look! I'm fully planning on wearing this trend all through summer

  9. Great summer outfit ideas! The first one is my favorite with the white maxi dress!

    P/S: By the way, I am hosting a fabulous giveaway so come by and enter!


    Have a fun weekend, Meghan!


  10. I LOVE them! And after seeing them with all the denim jackets, I feel like that's the only way to wear them now! :)

  11. Totally love maxi skirts. I have to say my favorite summer outfit right now are dressy shorts with a cute top. I have a ton of colors so I guess thats why but I also like my sunny dresses :)

  12. I'm only 5 foot 4" so I am really conscious that the maxi makes me look shorter. Maybe it's just me and it's not so at all. But I always felt you had to have some height to carry it off, and not look like you were a dwarf without legs ;-)

  13. Although I do not have enough maxi skirts my collection of maxi dresses is increasing and I love the look and the feel of it and they are ever so comfortable.

  14. Gorgeous, and they look so great with a denim jacket. x
