Feeling relaxed in a Maxi Dress #chicandstylish #linkup

Good morning lovelies.
How's it going in blogging land?
We've had glorious weather today, I even managed to get the grass cut good and short.  It was hard work, but so nice to be out in the warm air and sunshine - such a shame it's the end of the season and not the beginning.  I do hope we're not in for long cold Winter again!

Over fifty doesn't mean you can't step out of your comfort zone and try something different.
That's just what I did when I picked this dress from Eva Trends.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

I'd been hankering after a maxi dress, and when I caught sight of the style & the pattern over this cool blue and cream Aztec dress* I wanted to see it on.  I needed to be convinced it looked alright - and I think it does. It looks casual, relaxed and simplistic, at the same time as being elegant and striking.
It's an easy to wear style with a drop waist on the back, three quarter sleeves and a V neckline with a tiny button at the neck. What more could you want?  Pockets!  Yes it's even got those - I love a pocket don't you?  Just to hide a tissue, a phone, a lipstick or hands!

My obvious choice of footwear had to be my ivory ankle boots.  The colour compliments perfectly as do my pearl and grey beads.

One size fits all, so the dress has a loose feel to it.  At just under £48 there's also a discount code of 15% to use at the checkout - just add JB15

I was worried about the smock effect - worried it would make me look 'expectant', but I think I've got away with it!  Maybe I could lend it to my expectant daughter!!

Last week's favourite is Jess.  She's wearing leopard print which I love.  If you're thinking about buying anything animal print - just go for it.  With leopard, cheetah & snakeskin amongst many prints all over the shops there will be plenty to chose from.  Find more from Jess on her blog Elegantly Dressed and Stylish.

  23. What a beautiful maxi dress Jacqui, I love wearing maxi's :)

    Thanks for sharing at Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop hope you're having a lovely week.

  24. Wow! This is an amazing maxi dress. Thanks for sharing such a unique collection. You look so beautiful and I would love to wear such dresses with Conch piercing jewelry. Because accessories give you a different style statement. Well, if I'd be asked to add accessories to my style, I would prefer piercing jewelry in the first place. in these days Conch Piercing is a huge trend. Thanks for the post.
