The spring floral maxi dress

It seems to be maxi dress week here on Sonia Styling!

But can you blame me?

I feel like I’ve been wearing layers of jeans, tops, coats, socks, scarves, beanies and boots for months.

So it’s high time for some beautiful, light fashion!

The other day I shared a lovely white maxi dress, and today I’m sharing a bright and colourful alternative.

Say hello to the Portofino Maxi Dress from Ivy and Jess.

Simply divine, it’s feminine, flowy and perfect-fitting. This wraparound style features a 3/4 sleeve, V-neckline and full-length skirt, with gathered pleat detail on the back.

This striking piece is ideal for your next special occasion or vacation.

Some styling notes worth considering… I found the top to be quite low, so I very carefully pinned it to keep it in place and prevent any accidental flashing episodes. Come summer, I’m going to find some dainty and pretty bras to wear with it to show off a little lace and colour (as the model is wearing it on the website).

I also belted the dress. I like to do this – particularly with a maxi dress – as I’m short and curvy. Belting the dress allows me to maintain my shape and is also handy for keeping wrap tops in place.

Now, let’s go for a spin…
