(Another) Monki maxi dress...

I love maxi dresses and Monki make some brilliant ones. I have had this dress for a couple of years but for some reason, I've never blogged about it! It is a little fancy for everyday wear but ideal for when you want to be comfy, but still look like you have made an effort- like date night or new year's eve! The dress is light as a feather and the pleats give the skirt a satisfying swoosh as you walk. It definitely has a Greek goddess vibe to it so gold accessories were a pretty easy choice. 

Dress: Monki, shoes: c/o George at ASDA, necklace: French Connection
This simple geometric necklace is one of my favourite sales bargains and is subtle enough to add interest without being overpowering. I have been trying to be more adventurous with my make-up and the combination of Revlon's ColorStay ShadowLinks eyeshadow in 'Peacock' and this turquoise Max Factor eyeshadow was the perfect match for the dress.

My hair is finally getting long enough to do more with and I have always been a fan of a twisted and pinned style. There's no particular method to this but it keeps my hair off my neck and it looks like I have bothered to make an effort, win win!

You know how much I love a swooshy skirt and this dress definitely ticks that box. Unlike my parrot print maxi, it isn't lined all the way down but it actually makes it much comfier to wear as it is a lot lighter. I should have worn more interesting shoes (wouldn't these wedges look ace?!) but comfort won out this time!

What do you wear on date night?
