Maxi Stripe

This is what I wore yesterday to... well, not do a whole lot actually. I took advantage of a parental visit to get a few outfit pictures taken. It was a sunny day, not particularly good for taking photographs so I tried to hide somewhat in amongst the ivy which cast a small shade for me to stand.

I did get to try out these platform sandals which are surprisingly comfortable to walk in, I definitely see them getting a lot of wear over the coming months, as I like them just as much with tights too. And although I'm not a big fan of 'current trends', I have embraced the maxi dress to a certain extent. It's a cool cover up for summer without me having to worry too much about baring my white limbs!

    You look so tall, and slim and beautiful.
    You always remind me of a delicate flower with fire inside.
    The touch of the long jacket is genius.

  13. Not feeling many of the current trends either, but I am liking the whole maxi thing. It makes a nice change and I find that maxi have more cross over for work/social use as the cover enough up for the office. Loving your striped one, very nice.

  16. I'm with you when it comes to white legs... everything to cover them up! I love this basic striped maxi dress :) x

  17. Oooh, a fellow maxi fan! That is a very pretty dress, and I love the stripes :) And I agree about the easiness of the maxi - it's a great cover-up for us pale girls, and has the added bonus of hiding hairy legs ;)

  25. those platforms are amazing. Love the brown leather. Mum loves them too. I'm home in sweden and she loves your blog as you might remember :)

    I love your haircut, think making that chop was the right decision. It looks so full and healthy and very trendy.

    Hope you had a lovely weekend. I'm shopping like mad here in Stockholm.

  30. oh i love maxi dresses... and those shoes are so cute! loving them so much!

  31. Personally, I think 'white limbs' look great anyway - so no need to cover up! However, I have to admit that your maxi dress looks rather wonderful with those platforms.

  41. I so know the white limb story. Yesterday a lady whispered a comment as I walked in the forest with my hubs. "Elle est blanche", she is white. But then again, that makes me 'me' (special) and I do not go unnoticed.

  57. I think this outfit comes to life with the blazer. Something about the lengths and accessories is really interesting to me. I love your shoes. Are they comfortable to wear?

    ReplyDelete
  58. kayhryn - thank you! they are surprisingly comfortable, they look high but the platform sole means the arch is not as high as it might be otherwise
