Sometimes, only a maxi dress will do

So the weather has been beyond ridiculous in recent weeks. I know I’m in the minority, but I hate the heat with a passion so have been utterly amused at the climbing temperatures. However, the good thing about weather like this is the opportunity to pull out a maxi dress.

Although I rarely wear them, I love maxi dresses, and this particular day was perfect for it. This one is from Next and pure cotton, so I very much enjoyed the little breeze there was! The pictures don’t do the dress justice because the colour is a little more intense than appearances, and I love the flirty slit on the leg ;) Because it was so hot, I chose not to wear shape-wear and was a little worried because I wear it more often than not. I know people are split down the middle, but I really like shape-wear. It’s not about trying to look slimmer, but it smooth’s you out and (I think) enhances your shape. Instead I threw on some shorts and headed out the door feeling comfortable, cool and a total babe!

Dress: Next
Cardigan: South (via Very)

A little embellishment with the belt :)
