basics: the black maxi dress

By Marlene | Published: 24. July 2014


We booked our summer holiday this week. That would be next year’s summer holiday. I know, I know. Who plans anything that far in advance? Parents that’s who. Which I sometimes still can’t quite believe I am now. But as much as I like the idea of rocking up at the airport with a carry-on and taking the first flight to somewhere sunny, well, I never really used to do that even when I didn’t have roughly ten tons of baby stuff to pack. Still, it makes me feel terribly grown-up, knowing where I’ll be in 12 months time. On a family vacation. On Mallorca.

On the other hand: that gives me a whole year to look forward to lounging around by the pool, drinking alcohol (!) and wearing all of the lovely dresses that I couldn’t wear this summer for evident reasons.

Steffi took these pictures of me on our last trip to Mallorca. I wore that dress from Ganni almost every day – to the beach, in the city, out at night. It’s so easy to throw on and still looks chic paired with heels and gold jewelry. It’s really the only dress I need in the summer (although I’m going to deny I ever said that when James asks me next year why I’m trying to fit my entire wardrobe into a suitcase).

My dress is from Ganni, here are a few others that I like in the shops right now.

With a pleated skirt from Mango | A great simple version from Monki | For evening from Filippa K | For when the money fairy has been to visit from Tibi | Not a dress, but this overall is just as chic, from Zara
