When I shared a selection of summer dresses a couple of weeks back there were of course several gorgeous maxi dresses I could have chosen and I thought they deserved their own dedicated post 🙂
I love a maxi and thought I might be able to wear a few of my old ones during pregnancy but apart from the stretchy jersey styles, as per all my other dashed fashion expectations during pregnancy, the waist hasn’t been in the right place or the boobs haven’t fitted…
I’m thinking of buying the French Connection dress (above right) for a holiday later in the year and wonder if I will be able to fit it now and after baby too…
And if you happen to fancy wearing a maxi to an occasion you have this summer, here are a few more dressy styles. I love the beautiful prints of these floral styles and can vouch for the MANGO dress which my friend Jess wore to her rehearsal dinner the night before her wedding a week ago – she looked stunning.
Plunge neck floral maxi, ASOS £55 // Cross back Silk maxi, MANGO £129 // Floral Maxi, Warehouse £80
And lastly, a little selection for my fellow pregnant ladies. The pickings are slim as always(!) but I bought this striking emerald maxi for a couple of occasions I have coming up this summer (as I’ll be in full bloom!) and think it would dress down just as well with flat sandals. I also like the bandeau style to prevent strap marks on sunny days and the Gap dress for casual ease.
Have you spotted any gorgeous maxi’s or have I turned your head with one of these?
