Blimey. It seems like we’ve got our first pop of 2013 sunshine in Britain. And even though it’s still only 6 degrees outside, people look a darn sight happier than they did yesterday.
So I finally feel like I can turn my attention to summer fashion.
Yes, I realise that I look like a total wally prancing around my house in sunglasses and a hat, but I thought I’d do a cheeky “fashion show” of some of my recent holiday purchases, even if it’s still too cold to actually wear any of them in the real world just yet. Plus, I found a maxi dress that’s LONG enough. And this I obviously need to share…
Aaah, the sheer unadulterated joy that comes with finding a maxi dress that touches the floor. It’s something that average-sized girls will never fully appreciate. I’ve had mixed success in the past with Next’s Tall maxis… some of them haven’t been the floor-sweepers I’ve been after. But this one with its pretty geometric/ Aztec print fits my six-foot frame down to the ground (literally), with a little to spare for heels. (Read the reviews: “Way too long….” Love it!)
I’m off to Vietnam soon, and I’ve been slowly acquiring a few long-length goodies for my holiday wardrobe, so keep your eyes on the blog over the coming weeks for summery frocks, pretty separates and cute sandals in larger sizes. And if you have any summery suggestions of your own… please share the wealth!
Anyone else bought clothes from Next’s Tall range before? How have you found the fit?
