Digital print maxi dress...

Now that summer is finally here to stay (fingers crossed!) I have been making the most of the sunshine and trying to wear my gorgeous new maxi dress as much as possible. This fiery orange beauty was a sneaky purchase from Monki last payday and I couldn't be happier with it. I ummed and aahed for ages between the dress and the skirt version in this print but I'm glad I went for the dress- much less faff when getting dressed in the morning as I don't have to find a top too ;)

Dress: Monki, belt: Primark, shoes: Nine West

I love how bright the colours are and the pixelly print is much more interesting than one of my many floral maxi dresses. It is definitely eye-catching and matched this skinny orange belt perfectly! (I love it when that happens!) 


This is actually supposed to be a midi dress but as I am sadly lacking in willowy long legs, it is more like a maxi on me. I actually prefer it this length though, no stepping on the bottom of your dress and accidentally garroting yourself (ahem) and short enough to show off your shoes! As you can see, the lining for the skirt only reaches mid thigh but luckily it isn't too sheer without it ;)


These gorgeous tan peeptoe shoes are a summer staple and get pulled out every year, I don;t know what I am going to do when they finally give up the ghost! I have been scouring eBay but haven't had any luck so far...


Are you too mini for a maxi dress? Are any of your shoes irreplaceable?

That is a gorgeous dress, you look lovely! I'm the same, midi dresses all hit about the same point on my legs too, but I have managed to find a few maxis that are just short enough not to step on - Boohoo is good for these! xx

This is the first maxi dress I've ever seen that isn't in a floral pattern, and I love it!

(And I have the same issues with dresses not being the right length for me!) xx

I think going w the dress option was a brilliant move. That way, you can wear a shirt over the top and belt it, and you essentially have a skirt!

You look primo, and I love how happy you seem in the photos!

Great summer staple shoes too.

Happy July!!

That dress looks amazing on you. I keep seeing Monki on blogs lately will definitely have to check it out.

ooooh love the print and vibrant colours! I only have one thing from Monki as I'm always worried about sizing x

danniekate said...

i love monki! i think i'm too short for a maxi, though :( xx

FAIIINT said...

The print is gorgeous! I love the pixely pattern, it's so unique & looks much more expensive than Monki! Still keeping my fingers crossed for the weather - it rained here today... Wah!

Jo said...

You really suit the orange colour of that dress, lovely length too. I really like maxi dresses but find they're not always particularly practical (for me anyway).

Love the pixalated pattern! I only have one maxi skirt as all the other skirts and maxi dresses I've tried on so far have been too long on me. This is such a summery outfit and it's fab! x

Wowwwwowow Maria! This dress suits you incredibly, you look amazing. I love anything vaguely geometric, but this is subtle enough to not be too wild. Love! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad
