Boohoo Maxi & A Little Helper…


I’ve been looking for a summer maxi for a while – annoyingly, every single maxi seems to have a split up your dress so high that you can see – well anyway, the less said about that the better. The point is, I’ve been searching for a pretty (but not see through), actual maxi (not thigh-high split, get done for indecent exposure maxi), with some nice patterning… And then I found this little number, from Boohoo of all places!

I used to shop at Boohoo and Misguided when I caught their adverts in the back pages of Vogue – before they were “super” popular… Now I don’t enjoy shopping on their sites too much; I know this is proper “first world problem” but there is just TOO much stuff on their sites! I’d need to set aside a full day for this. I came by this dress in the ASOS sale and I love it!

Especially as it has adjustable straps so you can wear it as a Bardot top, a cold shoulder style top or even just as is… It’s really versatile and the material is lovely quality…

I love the detail and the little tassels are weird but cute…

It’s been ages since I took blog outfit pics, which was actually how I originally got in to blogging! I’m pretty pleased with how these photos came out (I did have a helper in the form of…)

But, let these pictures serve as a reminder that nothing in the internet is as it seems. Pretty and dreamy as my Mum and Dad’s garden is… I am about 4 feet away from projectile vomit (c/o one of the Littles over the weekend, poor sausage), and also Max’s eyebrows (they get SUPER long so my Dad trims them for him so he can see)…. A weird combination indeed! Still, it’s a miracle what the crop tool can get rid of…

I think I might just set that time aside for browsing Boohoo after all!

Dress here.

    This dress is gorgeous and I adore tassels! I have a shirt dress from Boohoo which has tassels on it. I know what you mean about the split, I have two maxi skirts like that but they have a lining underneath which makes it just about ok! What a gorgeous fluffy dog.

      Ooh a lining is a GREAT idea 🙂 I might have to invest in some skirts to wear under it… I’m just too short for a thigh high split! 🙈

    The dress is gorgeous! and it really suits you, if Bardot styled tops/dresses suited me I would definitely buy this 🙂

      Aw thank you! I’m sure you would look lovely in anything Bardot but happily this has straps too so you can wear it normally as well 🙂

    Gosh I know exactly what you mean! Now I don’t mind showing off a bit of leg but I get super uncomfortable if it goes up any further… I’m glad you found one in the end, and you look so lovely!

    I love your dress so much, I’m the same as you, boohoo, missguided and for me, asos, all have far too much choice and it puts me off shopping there, you search for ‘pink top’ and there’s 1678 items haha.

    This dress looks absolutely stunning on you! The colours work so perfectly, and that little row of tassels is just adorable! I own a couple of maxi dresses (one that I’ve had since I was 14!) and I can feel your pain of trying to seek out one that has a flattering fit but without see-through material or a thigh-high split! Your end paragraph about being so close to vomit and stray eyebrows did make me giggle, great to see that you’re keeping it real hahah!

    Maxi dresses are so pretty and I find them so comfortable – when I can find one that fits! Maxi dress + short person don’t go well together! It’s almost impossible to find one that doesn’t trail our behind me like a wedding dress train, haha. This one you found is stunning and I’m so glad you found one that doesn’t have an annoying split!

      I know – they’re like the Unicorn of the dress world I swear! I’m 5’2, so I have to lift this up like a ball gown when I’m inevitably running late for things! Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂
