I must say; I am more of a winter person however warm, sunny days make me as happy as can be. But (really BIG BUT here), once the temperatures soar to 28 degrees and beyond that is where I draw the line! So weird though; considering up until about 7 years ago, I lived in a small town called Triangle where temperatures in summer were nothing short of scorching. Being outside pretty much felt like taking a nice long walk through a blazing hot furnace!
That being said, one of my favourite go to items for this summer are maxi dresses. As my friends will testify, I am seen in one of these at least 80% of the time. I hate pants in summer, I find them rather uncomfortable.
One of the many reasons I love maxi dresses so much, aside, of course, from how flattering they are, is the fact that they move with your body. Whenever I wear one, I feel like every step I take sets the skirt in motion, creating an illusion that it’s floating around me in the most enchanting and graceful way.
When it comes to choosing colour and style, I really love bold colour prints. I think they complement my skin tone beautifully. Really appreciate the high waist look, I think that compliments my figure quite gorgeously too.
I must say I have a completely new appreciation for how light and airy these dresses are. On some days it feels like I’m wearing nothing at all! And considering this southern Africa heat at times; wearing nothing at all feels like a pretty good idea!
