Maje in heaven

I was going to be really lazy today and post this Maje advert, write a couple of lines about how much I love it and how inspirational it is, and pretty much leave it at that; but it got me thinking.  Yesterday I brought the vast majority of my clothes back from Oxford, and when I opened my suitcase to unpack this afternoon, I realised how integral Maje is to my wardrobe - I own about 10 different items from the past 3-4 collections.  So then I thought that it would be cool to follow the advert with pictures of me in my Maje clothes, and started off with this classic black dress...

I really love it, but I hardly ever wear it;  I guess I just think it's boring or something.  So then I thought, maybe I could try and make it a bit more exciting by adding things.  I started off very simply...just a scarf and my trench coat. Already I thought, wow, I need to wear this more often!  

Just as I was about to put on the next dress, I remembered how i'm constantly talking about how I need to be more adventurous when it comes to what I wear. What better way to start off than by experimenting with a single black dress?!  So here it is...  I had a LOT of fun with fashion today, and that's the way it should be! Although I wouldn't necessarily wear all of these combinations, i've definitely discovered at least 2 or 3 new outfits and I didn't have to spend a single penny. It's taught me how important it is to think outside the box, and i'm going to do things like this again and again.  

So I guess I wasn't lying or being hollow when I wanted to say that I found the advert inspirational...I just didn't know it at the time!  One advert has completely shifted my way of thinking!

Can't decide which scarf to wear? Why not wear them both?!  

Adding a Breton tee - simple but effective


I love the way that you can see the shoulders of the dress

Thank you to my incredibly stylish Dad!

I love the contrast between the black and white

Thank you to my Mum!  I love what the gold ties add to this.

Definitely try it!
