Petite Midi Dress Haul (Try on): Summer/Winter Transition

August 30, 2020

Hi guys! Gosh it feels like a while since I have been on here – lockdown means a whole lot of doing nothing. As its coming to the autumn / winter transition, out come the midi dresses. In all honesty, I didn’t think I had so many – here are some of my faves.

Primark Midi Dress

What I find odd is that all my dresses are from different places. I have a growing obsession with covering up – I know how odd. I am someone who is ALWAYS cold, and no longer need to bear all you know? So out go the mini and here comes the midi.

Primark has got the summer/winter transition nailed and many midi dresses are on sale right now! I got this for Β£10 (down for Β£16), a pleated and puffed sleeve dress with white polka dots. What I love about this dress is the collar and short sleeves, which is secured around the neck by a tie string. It has an elasticated waist that can hide bloating, and a skirt which can blow in the wind without accidents. Pair with some boots for a classy and fashionable look.

New Look Beach Midi

Although shorter than I thought, I would consider this dress as a midi due to its flowing ability. However, in terms of downsides: the dress is thinner than I would like (even as a beach dress). Also, the tie area does not do up as tightly as it should – especially when you cannot wear a bra. Other than that, this dress is perfect for pairing with some sandals for a late-night stroll down the beach.

Femme Luxe Midi

If you have been avidly reading this blog, you would know that this item is gifted by Femme Luxe. A well-loved piece in my wardrobe, this dress is perfect for dressing up and down. I wore this paired with a Zara cardi in Monaco and it was excellent with the intermittent sun and rain. My only issue is with the shoulder strap stitching snapping twice, but nothing a safety pin can’t fix.

Mango Navy Midi

When in the store, I was deterred because of the price (Β£20 on one item must be justified); however, I couldn’t leave without it. Although I got this in a size smaller than my actual size, it fits perfectly. The material is such a good quality – almost like a boiler suit type material. The collar and adjustable waist tie really do add a look of elegance to it. Ahhh I’m in love.

Topshop Midi

Now I am not afraid to say it – I am not a Topshop fan. I have tried to give it the time of day but quotes and “eccentric” clothing is not my thing. Text, especially on clothing, has always been an issue for me, because I always get bored with what it says. Nonetheless, I saw the words “sale” and gave it a shot. I must say, I really do love this midi dress, the quality is perfect and ideal for keeping me warm. My only issue: (either the material or lockdown related bum growth) the bottom 2 buttons do not securely fasten. I mean its fine because I can wear it like a central slit, but it is just slightly annoying.

And there we have it – guess I don’t need to buy any more midi dresses any time soon! Which one is your favourite?
