Current Fashion Obsession: Maxi Dresses and Wedges

There are two items that have slowly but surely taken over my summer wardrobe in the last years: maxi dresses and wedges. I loved the look of long dresses and skirts, but wasn’t brave enough to buy either until I tried one on in H&M last year and was instantly sold.

This is the one I bought last year: a grecian royal blue maxi dress. It truly is one of those “why didn’t I buy it in every available color” items. Wearing this makes me feel very feminine and sophisticated but it is also really comfy.

Of course, H&M doesn’t have this particular dress this year so I was looking around for something similar when I found this lovely black and white stripe. Slightly less sophisticated, but so easy to wear.

wedges

Wedges are one of those fashion inventions I never quite understood, until I tried them on and realised just how lovely they are to walk on. Now, I take the massive side profile for granted, because I can simply walk in these all day. Not something I can say for most of my normal heels.

I have a feeling that this will be my go-to summer look, provided the weather remains nice and sunny. What will you be wearing this summer?


Er zijn twee zaken die langzaam maar zeker mijn zomer garderobe hebben overgenomen: de maxi jurk en sleehakken. Ik vond meiden in een lange jurk of rok er altijd geweldig uitzien maar was nooit moedig genoeg om het aan te doen tot ik vorig jaar een maxi jurk pastte in de H&M en meteen verkocht was.

Dit is DE jurk van vorig jaar: een griekse koninklijk blauwe maxi jurk. Het is echt een van die ‘waarom heb ik niet alle beschikbare kleuren gekocht’ kledingstukken. In deze jurk voel ik me vrouwelijk en chique, maar tegelijkertijd heel comfortable.

Natuurlijk heeft H&M deze jurk niet meer in de collectie, dus ik was op zoek naar iets vergelijkbaars toen ik deze leuke zwart-wit gestreepte jurk vond. Net iets minder netjes, maar zo makkelijk te dragen.

wedges

Sleehakken vond ik eigenlijk altijd maar lelijke dingen, totdat ik ze een keer pastte en me realiseerde hoe lekker ze lopen. Nu neem ik dat blokkerige profiel voor lief, want ik kan hier echt de hele dag op lopen. Zeker niet iets dat ik kan zeggen van mijn normale hakken.

Ik heb het gevoel dat je me deze zomer kan uittekenen in deze look, als het weer tenminste mee blijft zitten. Wat ga jij deze zomer dragen?

    Really like those dresses and especially love that blue colour! Wedges are so comfortable aren’t they? In summer I love wearing loose fitting boobtube dresses!

    I also love maxi dresses! I have quite big natural (unwanted) boobs and find that when I buy a dress, I cant find one which cater for big boobs without having to go up to a jumbo size. With most of the maxi dresses it stretches so it shows off my figure and don’t make my boobs look massive xx
