Maximising Life in the Country

I've never worn a maxi dress before, so as soon as the sunshine greeted us this week, I decided to bring mine out on an adventure.  I've only ever bought one - a colourful and floaty dress from River Island which hasn't made its way out of my wardrobe in about a year.
My boyfriend and I couldn't have chosen a better week off work, so on Monday we knew we had to do something we couldn't do day to day.  So, my maxi dress and I found ourselves down in Barcombe for a pub lunch and a ride down the river Ouse.

I don't think I've ever felt so out of place.  A dress which would go unnoticed in London, seemed to attract a lot of attention from the East Sussex residents.  I didn't take it negatively though - The Anchor Inn was a lovely pub surrounded by fields with cows.  If I were a resident, I'd think a girl walking around in jewelled sandals and a colourful maxi dress was insane too.

Casual pose along the river bank looking at the cows.  The scenery was spectacular.

Maxi dresses aren't the most convenient of garments when getting in and out of a boat.  I came close to falling in several times.

Maxi Dress: River Island
Sandals: M&S
Bracelets: Blanco
Handbag: Fiorelli
Sunglasses: H&M


  1. I like this maxi dress not just for the design but the sleeves and cut on the bust. I have quite a few maxi dresses (that rarely come out of the cupboard!) but when they are strapless they can often get a bit unflattering on the bust area so I love the design on yours! Will have to hunt a similar one out if the sun ever comes back out!

    1. I've been a maxi dress convert! I've just never really looked twice at them before, but after this one, I seem to have fallen in love with them.
