All Was Golden When The Day Met The Night

Me again!

I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend what ever you're doing.

It's been such a gorgeous week in England. Today was another scorcher, and it's been so hot I've gained lots of new freckles on my legs... I haven't even left the house- just from lying under the window!

I just spent the last hour trying not to choke with laughter while watching the Irish stand-up comedian, Dara O' Briain, on TV, and the rest of the day trying to read Stephen King's 'IT'. I'm half way through the 1400 page classic and I'm still not enjoying it. It's the first of his novels I haven't loved. Has anybody read it?

Anyway, on to the OOTD


I can't believe I'm actually sharing this photo on here. I hate baring my arms, but I hate my wide shoulders even more. This is actually the first and only halter-neck anything I've owned, but I love this maxi dress, it covers quite a lot up top, and it was way too hot to cover up.

The fabric of the dress billows and cascades, and skims down to the floor. I knotted the hem to stop myself from tripping over it; and to freshen the look.







I decided to try it with a wooden coloured necklace I've had for a few years; and multi-coloured bracelets.


If I was heading out of the house, I'd probably wear this dress with my purple sandals. They're a low wedge.

I only lasted in this outfit for about ten minutes. It was too hot! I ended up changing in to a cotton sun dress, and back in to bed.

  2. omg that song! Why is it you have such superb taste in EVERYTHING?!

    I really like this outfit on you, it makes you look really tall imo and you know I don't see anything wrong with your arms/shoulders so I think you can wear a halter neck without any hesitation. I also like the colors and pattern of the fabric, as much as I like bold colors, I think these softer shades also look great against your skin tone :)

    1. I don't know what to tell you Nita! I just comes naturally to me! Haha. I love Panic! At The Disco, they're one of my faves.

      Thank you for all the lovely comments. I always feel tall in a maxi dress, but still don't love my shoulders and arms. I don't like pastels against my skin tone- they don't suit me so well, but the patterns are bold so makes it more wearable for me. :)

    1. Thank you. I'm actually trying to work my way through all of them; but probably not the Dark Tower ones. The Stand is actually my favourite book (along with The Time Traveller's Wife)! I read it in January and couldn't put it down. I always like those end of the world type story lines. xx

  4. That is such a pretty dress on you! The bright colors look lovely on you, and I love how you tied up the bottom and added lots of bracelets. Perfect summer outfit, I think! :D

  5. that dress is so good on you-your shoulders are great, with good shoulders you can wear anything- its structure! i have wide shoulders, they make me feel fierce! and your arms are lovely too- i also love the mountains of bangles, and a great idea to knot the skirt x ps read your bag blog too - you know you have completely inspired me to maintain a tidy bag since that post a month ago - i'm such a lady now! thank you xx

    1. Thanks Maria! I've never liked my shoulders. They're as wide as my hips, and even when I was little looked so broad. I'm in proportion, but it's one part of my body I would change if I could. I'm glad you're rocking yours, though! I envy anyone who has self-confidence.

      I'm glad I inspired you. My work here is done... haha. xx

  6. Love the dress, it looks super pretty on you :)

    I felt really uncomfortable getting my arms out for the first time this year because it's been so warm but after the first day of wearing a sleeveless top I'm now fine about it :) xx

    1. Thank you, Sarah!

      I NEVER get them out in public. I feel so self-conscious so I'm using this blog to try to get out of my comfort zone. I wish I could just get on with it, like you! :S
