Mustard Maxi for Summer


yellow maxi dress white shrug summer outfit

Maxi dresses are my absolute favourite. I don't care what is said about one's height and maxi dresses, I love wearing them!

I picked up this mustard maxi from Forever 21 (Phoenix Marketcity, Pune). Major love happened in the trial room mainly cuz I loved the colour and the fall of the dress. Also the frill around the neckline made the dress appear nicer than it would have if it was just simple. It created the right kind of distraction.

Speaking of the real challenges, I wasn't sure about pulling off the colour and how I'd layer the dress given the spaghetti straps. Most of my maxi dresses are either plain black or those with prints on black. So they're easier to pull off. But this was a mustard, maxi-length outfit...In keeping with the summer spirit, I wanted to give my trusted black layering options a miss. So instead, I paired the dress with a short-sleeved denim shirt and a white long cover-up. Both the layering options were comfortable enough to let my skin breathe. I'd opt for the white one if it was a more casual outing and go for the denim shirt if I was heading to a slightly more dressy place.

As for the accessories, I've got my patent rings and a delicate layered neckpiece. I didn't want to do something very chunky given the frill on the neckline. A pair of studded flats, a classic bag and sunglasses completed my look. Having played safe with the colours, I was quite happy with the overall look and am glad to have finally worn this dress. Oh and by the way, the slit on one side was something I got done from the local tailor...It was just perfect for those windy, summer evenings.

Wishing you lots of sunshine! - Love, M!
