Last week I opened a suitcase containing my Summer clothes and found this yellow belted midi dress that I hadn’t got around to wearing. I bought it from the Marks & Spencer outlet near to where I work last year towards the end of the Summer. However, it failed to make the holiday wardrobe edit when I went to Madeira. So, I put it away ready for Summer 2020. As we’ve had some glorious weather for April I thought there was no time like the present!
There wasn’t a size 10 so I had to get a 12. Consequently, the dress is a bit loose on the shoulders. The wide, deep v neck at the front and back exacerbates that, which is a bit annoying. I don’t like to keep fiddling and readjusting clothing. On the plus side though it has pockets! We all love dresses and skirts with pockets don’t we?
The funny thing is, I’d opened the suitcase to look for my lilac trousers (seen in this post with a green blouse). I was planning on wearing them for this post but I can’t find them anywhere. Isn’t it frustrating when you can’t find the one item of clothing you really want? But at least I rediscovered this dress, so that was a bonus. For a fun, Springtime colour combination, I teamed the yellow belted midi dress with green accessories. It was inspired by the green dress with yellow accessories from two years ago – I found that dress in my Summer stash too! It’s a similar outfit, just with the colours inverted.
SHOP THE LOOK
I picked up the velvet bag in a shop in the Lowry Outlet (where I also bought the dress) reduced to just £10. Being able to idly browse shops and snag bargains on a whim seems like such a luxury now. The shoes are from TKMaxx and were only £15. I’d been looking for some non-leather bright green shoes for ages so these were a great find. The other bargain in this outfit is the Quay sunglasses which cost a mere £2 from a charity shop. I’m so looking forward to being able to rummage in charity shops again!
