I wore this outfit a while ago but am only getting around to posting it now. I bought this summer dress last year (worn here) and decided I’d get more wear out of it by pairing it with a jacket to make it work appropriate.
Kindly excuse the lack of detail for outfit pictures as I’m still trying to figure out the best way to take selfies with my new camera. The auto-focus on my micro 4/3rds camera doesn’t work like my previous point and shoot!
Happy 4th to my fellow readers here in the US! In the spirit of American Independence Day, I decided to don red, white and blue for my outfit to run errands earlier this morning. I’ll also be wearing the same outfit this evening for a gathering at a friend’s place for some food and fireworks.
I attended a friend’s wedding this past weekend and it was a simple yet beautiful wedding. I was busy taking mental notes as my wedding will be at the same venue! The bride and groom offered to save their decor for me (sweet!) and a friend who helped out at the wedding kindly forwarded me the agenda/plan. Upon seeing all the details, I had a mini panic attack realizing that I have yet to decide on many of the things on the agenda! That my fellow readers, explains my absence as I’m currently working on finding a caterer along with deciding on the other food-related details.
In any case, here’s what I wore to the wedding. I decided to keep accessories to a minimum as the maxi dress had a beautiful print and beading around the neckline.
Ever since I found maxi dress to be flattering on me, I’ve been trying to wear them more often. I packed one with me on my birthday vacation and wore it layered under tops, which was great for the cooler temps in England. Here’s my maxi dress layering outfit worn on my birthday as we went to visit G’s cousin and his family in Exmouth by the coast. Coincidentally, I bought this H&M maxi dress on my birthday last year!
It was really windy by the seaside and I had G snapped multiple shots with the wind billowing at my maxi dress so that I can create an animated gif for my outfit pic. 😉 I’m linking this post with Marionberry’s Trend of the Month: Maxis so do check out how others are wearing their maxi dresses or skirts. 🙂
In one of my previous Wishing Wednesday post, I wrote about what I liked about the ZARA wrap mini skort that’s a popular item among bloggers. Yet, I expressed why it wasn’t for me as the length wasn’t work appropriate. Well, fast forward some weeks down the line, my lovely sister had one made for me by a tailor that she frequents when she’s in Hong Kong. Yes, made exactly color-blocked and at the length I preferred! Thank you, kajia! The finished product lacks pockets but I’ve received plenty of compliments on it each time I’ve worn it! 😀
I wore it this past weekend, keeping to a monochrome palette with a pop of color from my bag to hang out with a friend who also kindly took my outfit pics. Thanks, E!
