Mad for Maxi Dresses

Best Maxi Dresses for Summer

I love a maxi dress – just not on me.  How I drool over those beautiful Spell maxi’s worn by lithe, flat chested 22 year olds, flowers in their hair, not a care in the world, even though the money they spent on that dress would cover a week’s food shop for me!

I’m not sure why I don’t feel comfortable in a maxi dress.  I think it’s because they usually show off too much skin on the top for me if they are strapless or shoe string strapped.  I never feel comfortable in a wrap dress & high waisted makes me feel hippy!  Sigh.

But – fear not loyal readers!  I am determined to throw caution to the wind & find myself the perfect Maxi for this Summer  The great thing about a maxi is they can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion, you can throw them on over bathers on a tropical vaycay & layering with boots & a jacket makes them even better!  Formal or beach wear – I’m hoping that just like you, I can find a maxi that suits my budget, shape & style.
