Backpack – Topshop

Hello lovelies!

My most recent purchase has been this khaki green maxi dress from Topshop. Maxi dresses are super comfy and perfect to lounge around in. I actually have a couple of maxi dresses lying around in my wardrobe, but a lot of them are more specifically for evening wear and I haven’t come across a formal occasion just yet. (someone please throw a dinner party!) It then struck me that instead of letting my maxi dresses wither away in my wardrobe, I should dress them down and wear them while I can. So thus came this outfit post! An attempt to wear a maxi dress in a casual, yet classy manner. What do you think?

Love from,

Miss Iffa

    Looks lovely! I only own one maxi dress and it's more for day wear. It has a crazy colourful tribal-inspired print 😀

    I think this eould look so much better if the dress was in some other color – for instance royal blue or a bit darker. but all in all lovely :)heart,nena.www.alice-in-wonderland22.blogspot.com
