Tropical Heatwave Calls For A Tropical Dress!

Are you finding it hard to dress in this heatwave? I’m barely wearing anything indoors! But we have to venture out, don’t we?

Shorts and a T or anything loose fitting and light has been my mantra for a good few weeks now. Visiting friends I chose to wear this gorgeous tropical print maxi dress. Simples! A one-piece floaty number. You may remember how over the moon I was with my maxi from Roman Originals last year

Same design, completely different look. Today calls for a tropical print!


Shorts and a T or anything loose fitting and light has been my mantra for a good few weeks now. Visiting friends I chose to wear this gorgeous tropical print maxi dress. Simples!


I just love the colourways in this dress. Lots of green shades with hints of pink. Very comfortable to wear, and no ironing required. This dress is an identical design of my Chevron striped dress from Roman Originals, and I packed it for my holiday to Malta. It came out of the suitcase crease free and I love it!



A simple knot design at the front of this tropical maxi dress is what really adds the interest to the dress. Very clever! And very comfortable too! The shoulder straps are quite deep and I like that. The dress is cut so well.

What do you think about the colours in the dress? I’ve dressed up my Chevron stripe Maxi for an evening out and I’m wondering how I would accessorize this tropical print one.

That’s the great thing about maxi dresses, they are so versatile. You can switch them from daywear to nighttime glamour with a change of accessories.

A straw bag and a watch are the only accessories needed for day wear



I’ve kept the look simple here by just wearing my watch and a straw bag. Add an evening clutch, heels and more dressy jewellery and you have a great evening look.



Finding shade in the leafy country lanes was a godsend! The breeze was so welcomed!

I’ve wanted to do a field shot for ages! Not many country fields in my neck of the woods, I decided to take the opportunity! Not so easy in heels though!


It’s times like this I wish I wasn’t a city girl. It seems so much cooler in the country too. I might have to pack a bag and shack up at my friends for a while!

Do take a look at the Maxi dresses Roman Originals have to offer. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve also listed my Chevron Striped Maxi dress below. Relaunched this year. Proof of popularity!

    Such a wonderful dress – which looks stunning on you – and so appropriate for the amazing summer we’ve just had! #PoCoLo

    You look delightful. That dress really works for you. Because I have thin hair and a somewhat slender body, I stay away from big florals. I think I would do better in a smaller print. But you look awesome.

    What a gorgeous maxi dress! I love the tropical print – very appropriate for this hot weather! The knot at the front and wide straps are such great design features, I prefer dresses that cover my bra straps. Thanks for linking up!

    Maxi dresses are such great pieces to wear especially for this really days we have been having lately! I love the print of your dress as it reminds of tropical vacation and who doesn’t love that?! Great pairing with your straw handbag and love the photos on the open field, it’s a nice contrast to the green color on your dress. It really is beautiful!

    Yet another winning maxi dress Laurie. The tropical print is so very apt for this current spell too. The colour and pattern are both pretty and I’m so pleased to see you frolicking about in the field – such fun!
    Enjoy your week!

      Thank you so much, Samantha. It’s good to hear that from one of my colour guru’s xx

  17. July 25, 2018 / 3:03 pm

    What a lovely look! I couldn’t agree more with the width of the straps, cool without being overly exposed. The knotted front is so very figure flattering. I’m not sure I’d venture out in a field… :).

    What a flattering cut for a dress. You look great! Wonder if the company would ship to the US without paying an arm and a leg for shipping! 🙂

      Hi Laurie
      Haha , same name! I’ve just checked the website and it does state that shipping is available to the United States and other countries. I think there is a $4 charge for this but best check. I hope this helps Laurie xx

    You gorgeous woman you. This dress hugs you in all the right places and yet is perfect for this heatwave. Just a heads up – I wasn’t able to click through the images (maybe just me?) xx

    You had me at “no ironing” Laurie. I like that this dress requires no further zjushing, it does all the talking and weirdly, maxis are cooler.
    The Atlantic keeps Guernsey’s temp pleasant in summer, and the humidity down, but it’s still bloomin’ hot!
    Hugs, keep cool, x.

    OMG Laurie, that dress is to die for!! I’m such a big fan of any kind of leafy print – especially when the colours are mostly green. A little addition of pink is stunning. I love the detail just below the bust too. AND it doesn’t need ironing?! What’s not to love!!
    I hope it cools down a little bit for you soon.
