A Midsummer Night’s Dream

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?

      Thank you so much and sorry for the delay in replying! Yes, the Falling Leaves necklace is only available online (and mine is the 70cm version). It’s such a pretty and easy to wear necklace xxx

    Liz the light on these pictures is absolutely beautiful (kudos to the Instagram husband), but it still doesn’t detract from how beautiful YOU look in this dress! This silhouette is my favourite kind of style with the fitted bodice and fuller skirt, and white embroidery anglaise is soooooooooo nice in summer.

    Plus how glorious does Skipton look in the sun?! I always think in this weather there’s no need to go abroad…!

      Hee hee! Yes, the Instagram husband is brilliant at finding the best light. He’s so patient too. And thank you for the lovely compliments about me and the dress. I love broderie anglaise, especially in white xxxx

    Dreamlike dress and dreamlike photos. Skipton looks like the northern England we other Europeans know from TV series, but then for real. Wow! I can see why you love living there. Love, Lieske

      Thank you Liekse, yes, it’s very quaint here in Skipton. It’s a typical market town and is very small and friendly xxxx

    You really do look beautiful, Lizzy! That dress is divine, but you had me at the title, Midsummer Night’s Dream! That’s my favourite Shakespeare play and always makes me think of dreamy summers…. exactly like your photos portray!
    Skipton looks gorgeous, by the way.
    Hugs

      Thank you Julia. The tall range at ASOS is fab isn’t it. It makes such a difference when the proportions are altered accordingly! xxx

      Thank you Abi. Yes, I love the necklaces too and I knwo what you mean about maxi dresses if you are petite. I have the opposite problem with shorter styles. They make me look huge! xxxx
