Dreamy Midsummer Nights
I will never, ever tire of evenings like this. Dreamy midsummer evenings when the sun keeps shining, the working week is over and the promise of an exciting weekend lies ahead. This was Friday night. Ian and I had booked a table for dinner and walked along the canal and into the centre of Skipton.
I bought this cutout lace maxi dress a few weeks ago for our upcoming holiday in Porto Santo. There are so few evenings we can wear something like this without needing an extra layer that I simply had to wear it and make the most. This is from the tall range at Asos. And for reference, I’m 5 ft 9 and I’m wearing flat espadrilles with mine. I’d say it’s runs slightly small. This is a 12 and it’s snug across the chest. There is a cute, short version here in the petite range which is absolutely gorgeous.
It’s lined to the low thigh which means the beautiful eyelet lace below that becomes semi-sheer in the sunshine.
The delicate honey bee and falling leaves necklaces look so pretty together. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like anything too heavy around my neck when it’s warm.
Midsummer in Skipton
A leisurely ten minute stroll from my house is all it takes to get into the centre of Skipton. And every route is a picturesque one. It’s wonderful being so close to the shops, restaurants and cafes. It’s a small, but beautifully formed little town and I love it here.
The Two Sisters, Skipton
We ate at The Two Sisters, a popular cafe bar. This isn’t a formal review by the way, it’s just somewhere we love to eat. It has a relaxed, friendly feel with views of the church above.
And in this photograph, it looks like I could be somewhere Mediterranean. There’s just something wonderful about sitting outside for a glass of wine isn’t there?
