Fantasy Friday #4 - Maxi Madness

Friday 31 May 2013

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

I've never really been into maxi dresses or long skirts, usually I favour something a little more along the lines of a skater dress or something just above the knee. This year though, I've really spotted quite a few maxi items that have caught my eye and made me want to try out the style!
Now I'm due to become a mum (he's still not arrived, 5 days late and counting, come on ooooutt!) I think my style has become a little more reserved than it has been before. 
I have tried the Denim Jacket (1) on and it looks much nicer than in the picture above with cute floral detailing on the inside of the cuffs. I think denim jackets are so great for mixing and matching with loads of outfits and to keep you looking stylish even with our crappy British 'summer'!
I really love the River Island coral dress (2) for casual wear, it's one of my favourite colours and would look gorgeous with a tan. 
The Warehouse Masai Print dress (3) is a little different to what I'd usually pick (because it's not pink or floral, haha!) but I think it's really pretty and bonus - it's currently reduced to £36 at House of Fraser.
The Oasis Iris Chiffon dress (4) is a little more fancy and I think would be great for something a bit more special, it's a bit more expensive than the other items, but you always have to spend a bit more for a celebration/occasion, right?
The linen top (5) and skirt (6) are pretty much a complete outfit that I saw on H&M but they just look great together along with the jacket and necklace (8) (Which sadly is sold out, but I couldn't find anything similar whilst browsing).
Finally, I couldn't resist a pair of wedges (7) to go with all the outfits above but I think they'd all look great with flats too.

Do you like the Maxi trend? What are you loving this spring/summer?
