I’m writing this post on a day similar to when the photos were taken – a gloriously sunny day. It seems that after half a summer of rain the UK has finally gotten its act together. But anyway, there’s me starting yet another post by commenting on the weather.

This Topshop midi dress is something I have been meaning to post about for a long time. I think I bought it back in about April(?) and immediately feel in love with it in the changing room. I have a bit of a problem though, of absolutely loving something when I’m trying it on the the shop, I buy it and then immediately feel like I can’t quite get away with it in, you know, real life. 

Once I finally wore it out of the house last weekend I realise how stupid that is. I love the dress even more than before and I was just silly to let my insecurities get in the way. When I was younger, maybe 15 or 16, I would not have stepped a foot near a dress of this length. I was all about the short, short skirt. This is probably because I felt my legs were one part of me I could actually feel good about, and also because I didn’t want to come across as boring in a midi length dress.

As with most things, time and age have made me realise what I’m missing out on. All those wonderful midi length items that I’ve just said an automatic ‘No’ to, for the sake of not wanting to come across as old before my time. I also really like Marks and Spencer now too, how’s that for old.

Here’s to many more midi dresses and skirts in the future, hey! I’m especially looking forward to some sort of burgundy/wine coloured midi skirt teamed with ankle boots and a fedora in the autumn. Oh and a coffee in hand. Make sure you follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin to keep up with the last few summer-y posts before it’s all scarves and pumpkin spice lattes.

  • This is a gorgeous dress Becca and you look lovely in it! I really like the midi length of this too, but like you, I’ve always shied away from it, but you’re inspiring me to be more adventurous with my clothes so maybe I should try something similar when I get the chance? Love how sunny it looks in these shots as well! – Tasha
