My First Maxi Dress #OOTD

I’ve never had a maxi dress before. I’m not sure why, I think it’s because I always felt they were for adults and I’d feel like I was trying to be all mature and classy, but really look like a 5 year old trying to wear her Mums heels.

Well, have I got news for you. I am an adult. Like, a fully grown one. So I guess that means I can wear prom dresses!

Thank God I had that revelation about the same time House of Fraser asked me if I wanted to try a maxi dress from their range.

This gave me a chance to test my newly found theory that YES, I am actually adult enough to wear a full length maxi dress.

And I love it! It’s a navy blue dress that’s pretty plain at the front, but the back has lovely lace detail.

If you’re looking for a maxi dress this summer, then look no further, there’s loads on HoF’s website of varying prices.

Do you like maxi dresses?

  1. I’ve also never had a maxi dress before, not entirely sure why. The adult factor is probably a likely reason for me too. Good to see you trying them because you look very beautiful here. The lace at the back is such a standout. I have been missing your outfit posts!

  2. Love the colour of this and the lace back is gorgeous! 🙂 Tania xx

  3. LOVE this dress on you, the detailing at the back is gorgeous! I reckon you pair this with a long dainty necklace at the front have have your hair up to show off the back, now that would look very grown up! I was in a similar camp to you, I never thought I could pull off a maxi dress but more because I felt like I was too short for them – now I love them and need MORE in my life! They’re so cool and flowy! Ideal for hotter days, holidays or when you really can’t be bothered to shave your legs!

  4. Love it! One question though – what do you wear under it? I love the idea of open/lace backs but I also need a bra. It’s the same reason I really haven’t embraced the “off the shoulder” look!

  5. That’s a gorgeous maxi dress. It would be perfect for a wedding or even for a nice evening out. I love the back detail.

    Oh and may I also comment on your enviable hourglass figure – you look amaze! xx

  6. I am so obsessed with interesting back details in clothes! Its so unexpected and I especially love items where the front is completely plain so you have no idea how cool the back is just like this one. I am a fan of maxi dresses though!

  7. you look beautiful, and I LOVE the back! So cute!! Very sexy! 😉

  8. I’m very fussy about them- I don’t like the low-cut strappy ones but classy ones like this are right up my street!

  9. You look very nice in this maxi dress Corinne, in summer I think shop maxi dress but I don’t found some ideal for me, I hope next summer shop one!
