Eva Trends leopard print maxi dress & Messages in Metal personalized necklace

I’ve only been back from holiday just over a week but it already feels like a long time ago. It’s taken me almost a week to get back to feeling on an even keel; coming from a tropical climate to grey skies and long nights has been hard to adjust to. Packing all my Summer clothes away is top of my “to do” list this week, which is a shame considering I only got to wear this Eva Trends leopard print maxi dress once.

This leopard print maxi dress turned out to be a great addition to my holiday wardrobe as it’s very lightweight and doesn’t crease.

I like to add one or two new pieces to my holiday wardrobe for every trip, and rotate my existing clothes. That way it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing the same things over and over again. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but I don’t want all my holiday photos to look the same! This leopard print maxi dress turned out to be a great addition to my holiday wardrobe as it’s very lightweight and doesn’t crease. Even though it’s quite enormous, the belt that came with it cinches in the waist to create a flattering shape. It has pockets, but they’re quite high so the belt partially covers them.

The V-neck of the dress is perfect for showing off my new necklace from Messages in Metal. I deliberated over whether to personalize the necklace with my name or my blog name, but as you can see I decided on the latter. I’m going to the Blogosphere Festival next month so I’ll definitely be wearing it there! If you’re going to wear a brand name, why not wear your own?

I was so pleased when the necklace arrived. The quality is great and the font is perfect – exactly the style I want for my planned rebrand.

    Emma, I love your earrings and that necklace is so fabulous! I have a bracelet that says “On the Edge” and one that says “Rediscover your edge”. So brilliant! And that dress is so great. I actually had that in my Evatrends cart, but ordered a black one with leopard accents instead. It will be on the blog once it arrives!

      Thanks so much Jess! Haha, yes – with a 12 character limit you’d be struggling!

    You look great in the dress! I had it too but I just couldn’t make it work. Nice jewellery too.

    • November 20, 2018 / 9:56 pm

      Thanks Gail. Oh that’s a shame – maybe you could get it altered?

    I always love a leopard print, and that dress is absolutely fabulous! I think belting it was definitely the way to go, too. So chic!

    I got a dress from Eva Trends that was HUGE too! I ended up belting it like you and it was so much better. It looks wonderful the way you wore it!

    • November 20, 2018 / 10:05 pm

      Thanks Laura! I really wasn’t expecting it to be so big – thank goodness it came with a belt!

    • November 20, 2018 / 10:06 pm

      Thanks Anna! She’ll be borrowing my clothes before too long!

  13. November 14, 2018 / 12:41 pm

    Oh, I never would have guessed that was a loose fit Eva Trends dress in those pics with the belt. It looks great. It’s so tough coming back from vacation isn’t it?

    • November 20, 2018 / 10:08 pm

      Thanks Julie! Post-holiday blues are the pits – I want to book another trip already!
