Tropical Print Maxi Dress & Heavenly Feet Vegan Sandals

August 16, 2020

The weather has cooled down considerably now, but for a while it was really hot and humid; the kind of conditions that sap your energy and make you want to lie down in front of a fan all day. The mini heatwave also got me in the mood wearing my holiday clothes, particularly maxi dresses. They are my garment of choice for beach holidays, especially those that don’t crease. I picked up this tropical print maxi dress from a charity shop for just £4!

These sandals are vegan, and unlike a lot of faux leather, these are really soft

While I was visiting my mum a couple of weeks ago we popped to the local charity shops – the first time since they reopened – and found some brilliant bargains. I bought two pairs of shoes for £1 each, including some brand new M&S Footglove wedges! On the subject of shoes, my new Heavenly Feet red sandals are perfect for this tropical print maxi dress. They are so comfortable thanks to the thick, cushioned sole. These sandals are vegan, and unlike a lot of faux leather, these are really soft. They don’t rub or pinch at all, which is very rare with new sandals in my experience.

Hopefully we’ll get some more nice weather so I can wear this tropical print maxi dress a few more times…

I’ve added a red bag and tassel earrings to match the sandals, but orange accessories would look great too. When I wear a maxi dress with a deep V neck I choose either big earrings or a statement necklace; both would be overkill. In really hot weather I don’t want heavy jewellery as it can be uncomfortable. My heart necklace that Isobel bought me for my birthday is delicate so it doesn’t compete with the earrings. The chunky bracelet was another charity shop bargain.

I’m going to wear my holiday clothes as much as possible before having to pack them away for another year. Hopefully we’ll get some more nice weather so I can wear this tropical print maxi dress a few more times, but September always seems like the time to look ahead to the new season. This year is going so fast!

Are you still loving Summer outfits or are you looking ahead to Autumn already?

    What a beautiful maxi dress and such a bargain! I tend to wear my maxi dresses year round but there is something so simple about throwing on a maxi dress in summer – that’s the most frequent time I wear mine! 🙂 I love the red sandals with it too, perfect pairing! 🙂

    Hope that you had a lovely weekend 🙂

    As fall styles are already coming out, I’ve been looking at them, but my heart is still in summer!! Our fall will likely stay pretty warm through November so I’ll still be wearing summer pieces. And this one is adorable! I love tropical anything and that jumpsuit and sandals are perfect!
