Why a maxi dress is your summer essential.

So it looks as though Summer is starting to make an appearance.  Time to put away my beloved winter boots and enjoy a spot of retail therapy for some new Summer clothes.

Personally I am a big fan of a maxi dress for summer.  What’s not to love?

  • They keep me cool in the heat, and believe me I am not good in the heat.  It makes me very grumpy!
  • It’s easy to hide my wobbly bits in a maxi dress.
  • I can still sit on the floor and build Lego and play cars with my small people without revealing my Bridget Jones pants to all in the vicinity.
  • I can treat myself to gorgeous accessories because anything goes with a Maxi Dress.
  • If I only have time to shave one leg, it’s fine!

Here’s my wish list for this summer from JD Williams…


Maxi Dress

Mornings are a military operation to get everyone up dressed and out of the door in time for school.  This look is simple, quick, goes perfect with dry shampoo and a messy bun, and those shades will hide the dark circles under your eyes!

  • Dress £29.00
  • Jacket £30.00
  • Sandals £20.00
  • Bag £45.00
  • Shades £9.99

Maxi Dress

I love this look for a pub garden or BBQ somewhere.  Maxi dresses look great with cowboy boots and a hat.  And don’t forget the gigantic bag for snack supplies and random bits of Lego.

  • Dress £50.00
  • Necklace £15.00
  • Boots £45.00
  • Hat £10.00
  • Bag £30.00

Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are perfect for weddings too.  I love the colour of this one and it looks really glamorous.  Now I just need an invite and a babysitter.

  • Dress £75.00
  • Bracelet £199
  • Belt £8.00
  • Bag £14.00
  • Shoes £40.00

  1. LOVE them all especially the red one. Can’t beat a maxi dress for keeping cool and looking pretty damn cool too. Effortless style!
