Hey everyone, hope you had a lovely bank holiday! So hard to be back at work after a 3-day weekend but I had such an incredible time in Paris and I can’t wait to share with you the two looks we shot very soon.

Today’s outfit was inspired by WeWoreWhat who really knows all the ‘coolgirl’ combos and makes it look effortless. This H&M dress (sold out but check out Gap) has a gorgeous cross back detail and the slanted cut is ideal for flat shoes. When the sun comes out I’m always tempted to thrown on flowy frock, but sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate and an extra layer is a must. I could opt for a sweatshirt or a denim jacket, but a biker gives this dress a tougher edge while also keeping me nice and warm (a blessing as it was absolutely freezing when we shot this in Hyde Park!)

I have such a weak spot for dresses or tailored pieces styled down with a pair of slips ons or Stan Smiths (for more tips see my guide to wearing sneakers) and think my Celine’s really bring this looks together.

How would you style a maxi dress? Let me know your thoughts in the comment boxes below!

    • Thanks Susie, was a bit of a nightmare but Im glad they came out okay! x

  1. ugh you freaking nailed it. I’ve had my eye on that dress (everything hits a bit later in the states) but now I might have to just take the plunge. Its got a vintage edge but perfect with that leather and great for summer nights.

    love!
