I've always been a mini dress/skirt girl, always thinking that midi and maxi dresses simply weren't my style and at 5ft3 just wouldn't suit me. But after months and months of seeing them incessantly on Instagram, I finally decided in January to take the plunge and push myself out of my style comfort zone. I scoured eBay and Depop but just couldn't find one in the style/pattern/colour that I wanted. So I relented and treat myself to 3 brand new dresses from Nobodys Child. They're a brand that (for me) are doing enough in an effort to be sustainable that I don't feel bad for buying new. In addition to supporting ethical practices and not releasing hundreds of micro-collections each year, they only produce small amounts of each collection to minimise waste and donate any spare fabric to fashion colleges. So they're no Boohoo or Pretty Little Thing!! I didn't intend to splurge on 3 dresses, I ordered 3 different styles to see how they suited me and ended up falling in love and keeping them all. Typical! I have, however, only got photos of 2 of them to share with you because when I went to take photos of the third it started raining and I simply never got around to doing so again!
And yes these photos are from January because that's when I intended to write this post and share it with you, but better late than never, right?

The thing I've found most appealing about long dresses is how simple and effortless they make styling an outfit. They make you look put together simply for throwing a dress on instead of some leggings, yet they can be just as comfy? I've actually found them great for this lockdown time at home tbh! You can layer them up with jumpers or cardigans over the top, roll necks or t-shirts underneath; pull them in with a belt or pile on the jewellery; style them up with heels or down with trainers. A whole new world of styling possibilities for me!
