Maxi dresses are always tricky for this time of year with the worry of being too hot or appearing overdressed. Getting the balance between the right style to suit you and the occasion can be difficult, especially if like me you are both petite and curvy.
Me and my best friend were recently discussing how much we love Bohemian fashion. Floaty, floral and freeing clothes are perfect for the summer, and that care-free style always looks great on other people. But we also had to accept that being voluptuous has its drawbacks and doesn’t quite go hand in hand with bohemian style, as floaty clothes can tend to make you look like a tent (in the nicest possible way, bigger boobs can be a real hinderance with fashion).
But nonetheless, I saw this dress online and could imagine myself wearing it, which doesn’t often happen with dresses longer than my knees. I think Boohoo is kind of overlooked these days because of Asos and Missguided, but I’m always surprised with how much great content they have, and also how much cheaper they are than other online stores.
