Make a Maxi Dress Work for Autumn

Maxi Dresses for Autumn? I say yes!

Zareya is wearing: Cotton On Kids Dress, Betts Kids Sneakers.

I didn’t wear a maxi dress all Summer.. now, in the middle of Autumn, I can’t get enough of them! Maybe it is because a maxi dress is just so cliché for Summer and well layering in Winter is just a lot more fun!

This maxi dress is a recent addition to my wardrobe, I am currently obsessing over silky fabrics and couldn’t resist the soft, draped material of this one. The backless style almost made me hesitate when purchasing it as it kind of limits how you can wear it (and helloo.. we are heading in to Winter!) but, after a bit of an internal changeroom dialogue, I convinced myself there would be many ways to extend the wear of this one. So how will I be wearing it as the temperatures drop, you ask?!

Well, with a leather jacket and sneakers (à la today’s post), with a white roll sleeve boyfriend tee underneath (inspired my clueless, of course!), or with an oversized chunky knit on top from my ever increasing knit collection.

Oh and of course dressed up with heels and some gold accessories for a night out!

I love a good change room styling session to justify any purchase, which was definitely helped along by the fact that it was ON SALE!

Also, you may have noticed Miss Z has made another appearance, we shot these pics for Betts Kids, and I couldn’t resist sharing! Miss Z is getting to be a bit of a natural in front of the camera.. she surprised us by actually being really keen to get involved with this shoot (even telling me to get out of the shot!) until we realised that she just wanted to practice her handstands and make us take photos of her while she was doing it! Sigh.. we got there in the end, though!


Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday (if there is such a thing as a fun Monday?!)
