Feeling hot, hot, hot!
Stop the traffic, this is a fashion post! “Whaaat?”, I hear you say. Yes, that’s right, this is a fashion post. Please don’t give me a hard time because I’ve not mastered the art of posing with one leg up (and all that jazz) but when the lovely folk at bonprix approached me, something inside me leapt at the chance to do something out of the ordinary on Just Nice Things.
Bonprix has a new collection of beachwear and looking at some of their other outfits especially the dresses, I am missing out on some beauties for my heaving wardrobe.
I was kindly sent this paisley sleeveless maxi. I confess it was a couple of months ago but with the unreliable weather we are blessed with in old Blighty, it’s been very difficult to actually wear it and I ended up leaving the country!
So when I was in Marrakech a few days ago, I took advantage of the sunshine and 30 degrees heat. And here I am, posing around the ruins of El Badi Palace:
I am fond of maxi dresses because I hate my short legs and fat thighs and they cover them up. But also these long summer dresses look elegant, they keep me cool and make me look tall at the same time. Paired up with some accessories and sandals, I’m sorted. I even attempted to match my nails with the dress…they remind me of those rocket ice lollies.
Sadly this dress is no longer available but there are plenty of others to choose from at bonprix and they are all priced very reasonably for exceptional quality. I know because my mum had a good look and if you know what Asian mums are like, they know how to spot quality fabric! My paisley dress was about £25.
If you’re getting ready to go away then it’s worth looking at the selection bonprix has to offer to get you in the mood for summer…or if you’re an optimist like me, we WILL have glorious sunshine. For first orders, you can get 20% off and free delivery until 30th June.
So, how did I do for my debut fashionista post?
