If you’ve been following me over on Instagram (@Scarlettlondon) then you may have noticed a recent ‘blue’ theme to my photos, as I’ve recently been staying in Greece. I’m now home (and suffering from horrible holiday blues) and in due course, I’ll put together a mammoth post on everything I got up to while there, however in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the outfits I wore.
Since we didn’t have much of a summer here, I wasn’t able to wear many of the sun-suited purchases I made, so they all ventured with me (in an extremely heavy suitcase) and I tried to make the most out of the gorgeous weather and incredible location.
This dress in particular was one I’d been vying to wear since I bought in all the way back in June. It’s a little more revealing and slightly more daring than the sorts of dresses I usually opt for, but I fell in love with it and re-added it to my online basket about 12 times before finally making the purchase. It’s something you’d probably save for a holiday date night – or special occasion, but since I was celebrating seeing the sun for the first time, it made an appearance on the first night.
A night which also happened to be rather windy. Note my fetching hair moustache…
Until now, I’d never owned a maxi dress because I’d imagined they’d swallow me and make me look far bigger than I was. This one however, I made an exception for – since there are two slits up the legs (don’t think I quite rival Angelina Jolie, but still) and this manages to avoid the swamped look.

I’m sorry if a couple of these pictures are too dark, we actually shot them at sunset – which I think makes for some usual, but pretty lighting. A massive thank you to Danielle for being patient and taking these, even when I complained about the lighting and moved position 7000+ times. #Bloggerproblems.

Do you own any floaty maxi dresses? Have you been on holiday recently?
