A maxi dress is something that is definitely out of my comfort zone and you'll usually find me in shorts or jeans, but as one of my summer goals is to be more adventurous with my clothing I knew wearing a maxi dress had to be done. My mum brought this dress for me after deciding I'd suit it a lot more than her, and I love it. It's lovely and floaty and is great in warm weather. I love how the top part isn't tight and skims over my tummy and the pattern is pretty without being too distracting. This dress makes me feel glamorous and grown up, It's a great dress as can be worn casual or dressed up a bit, it doesn't feel too formal though with the bottom half being more sheer with a slit up the side.
I wore this outfit for a day exploring the city of York with my boyfriend, luckily these sandals from tesco are really comfy and were great for a day of walking, this bag is also the perfect size and just fits all the things I need so I don't have to carry around a massive bag full of rubbish.
This was my first time taking outfit photos, and it took a lot of encouragement from my boyfriend, but once we'd found an area where people couldn't see we got snapping. It took a lot of shots as I found it hard to pose without feeling awkward or giggling, but I'm happy with how these photos turned out and look forward to roping the boyfriend in to taking more photos for future outfit posts!
