Outfit: Casual Black Maxi.


Dress: C/O OMG Fashion* | Jacket: Vintage via Sweet Monday | Shoes: Converse


Today's outfit is one that I actually surprised myself by wearing. The thought of one of these loose, jersey maxi dresses has always scared me a little, I always imagined them to highlight every lump and bump on my body as well as swamp my petite frame (it is a little long on me haha!). I really love the way they look on other people though, so I finally decided to bite the bullet and get this one from OMG Fashion. It is the perfect piece of clothing for this horrible inbetween weather that the UK is getting at the moment; It is sleeveless with a racerback design, making it cool enough to wear when it is sunny (or muggy, in our case), yet it covers enough of you to keep you warm paired with a jacket if gets chilly. I bought this jacket from the lovely Kim over at Sweet Monday. I remember seeing it featured in one of her outfit posts a few months ago and I fell in love with it, so I was quick to bid on it when she put it up on eBay! I am so happy that I managed to get my hands on it, I love the print and its slightly oversized fit.
I hope you like my outfit! How have you been tacking this difficult-to-dress-for weather?

  10. How tall are you Frances? I didn't realise you were small, so am I at only 5'1" and it can be a bit of a pain findng maxis and jeans in the right length! Haha. This dress really suits you though, it's so flattering.
