The Red Ombre Maxi Dress

(Dress – Similar, Bag – Exact On Sale, Shoes – Exact On Sale, Bangles – Similar)

This is an outfit that I wore last month when we finally had our taste of Summer. I hadn’t had time to post it yet as other outfits and posts sort of came first, but now I am able to share it with you. I got this dress around Christmas time during the sales and have been waiting for the perfect moment to wear it. That time came last month and I love it. I am a huge fan of the ombre trend as you know and the fact that this has a shorter under skirt with layered sheer fabric over the top makes it even more beautiful.

I’m wearing my Miss Selfridge Ombre Maxi Dress, my gifted Sam Edelman Yelena heels, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie Clutch in Dandelion and my H&M Gold Bangles.

I thought his location near where I live (I live in the countryside) would be perfect for the backdrop too because the yellow of the fields contrasts so nicely against the red. Anyway, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear this dress again. I actually got the petites version so it fitted better and it’s also a one shoulder dress, but it suits me better strapless because of my shape, so I sort of customised it a bit. What do you think of the outfit? Don’t forget to enter my $100 Shopbop giveaway too! It ends in a few days.

      Thanks Mark! But no, sadly I’m in with you guys in the rest of the rain. I mentioned in my post this was taken last month when we had the hot weather so that’s why I’m dry and in a dress lol.

    Lorna you look amazing. I adore maxi dresses, and these new ones which have a short skirt effect underneath are really pretty. x

    This is a great colour on you Lorna, the ombre tones are so pretty. I’ve never really realized how red and yellow go so well together, I think I should try this combination out.
