OOTD: A Slinky Summer Maxi Dress

Can short girls wear maxi dresses? If you type this into Google, there are 2.21 million results. Some of the headlines include “16 Trends Short Girls Should Avoid” and “Short Girl Fashion Rules” so it’s clearly a topic which short girls have asked many times before.

Well, what a load of old rubbish – wear what you want as long as it makes you feel good. And I feel great in this beautiful maxi dress from House of Fraser*¬†Superdry isn’t a brand that I would ever normally look at but this stunning slinky dress jumped out at me when I browsed the maxi dresses on the House of Fraser website.

Which reminds me – did I mention I’m going on my first ‘travel blogger’ holiday in two weeks? Jet 2 Holidays and BH Mallorca are sending me away to Magaluf for a week and I absolutely cannot wait. I am in serious need of a week of sunshine and cocktails – and lots of Instagram holiday spam!

This maxi dress has gone straight in my suitcase as it’s the perfect holiday dress for trips to the beach and dressed up for evenings. The cotton material is super comfortable but the strapless back makes it a little more dress, meaning it’s versatile enough for me to even wear it to a wedding this weekend.

I also couldn’t resist wearing my Time Turner necklace – my new Harry Potter themed jewellery to add to my geeky jewellery collection. My brother bought me it as thanks for helping with his dissertation – I feel like Hermione whilst wearing it! Finally, I popped on some gorgeous tan coloured lace up heels from Primark and let the dress take centre stage surrounded by the beautiful flowers of Hyde Park.

Are you a maxi dress wearer? What do you think of this outfit?
