Summer evenings maxi dress

Hello there,

One of the best things about summer is eating outside, but it can be a bit chilly in the evenings. I wore this last week to keep legs and shoulders warm.

I realised halfway through the evening that whole outfit is from Indigo at Marks & Spencer. I love this range. I'm lucky enough to live within 5 mins of a huge out of town M&S so I'm always popping in to see what's new (my bank card though is not so happy about this). A lot of the Indigo range has a beachy holiday feel to it and I rarely walk past without finding something I want.

Dress - size 22 (old)
Cardigan - size 22

I love maxi dresses, but at only 5'3, they normally swamp me. This is one of only two I have where I haven't needed to hack a few inches off the bottom. Plus bonus - this has an elasticated waist which actually sits on the waistline and can help raise the hem by a few inches if needed (handy for stairs - trust me).

Thanks for reading and hope you're all enjoying the summer sun.




  1. You look gorgeous! I too love a maxi, but at 4'10" I have to go Midi and then it tends to be maxi.... Haha! I may need to check out this range at M&S, I always forget them if I'm honest.... Looking lovely x

  2. It looks perfect for this muggy heat and I love the pattern. Found you via #30plusblogs. x
