Rocking the Summer Maxi

I have always been afraid of The Maxi. This is because I am tall (5ft10) and worry about looking like a plank, or bean stalk.

I always envied small curvy girls wafting around looking comfortable and effortless. My husband was the one who pushed me to try a Maxi. He said ‘your blog is about inspiring people, so you have to think out your own box and try new things’ Good point. So I did.

Yes this Maxi is conservative in classic black and white and there are piles of delicious floral options out there, but the point is, if you are trying something 100% new, go with what feels most comfy and build your confidence from there.

After taking this frock for a test run around Bangkok City, I am in love and already trawling sites for more! Totally fabulous, floaty and elegant. Thanks to my delicious husband 🙂

I adore fashion and spend most of my free time looking for great, chic items I can mix and match. Oh, and the occasional luxury item of course! There is nothing better than sitting in a boring meeting and being inspired by your own shoes :)
