Cold as ice-cream, but still as sweet

Debbie Harry t-shirt: £7, H+M kids. Yellow midi-dress (worn as skirt): £13, Primark. Heeled chelsea boots: £60, Topshop. Bag: ma's. Belt: 20p, charity shop. Watch: gift, Rotary. Sunglasses: £1, Primark.

Ignoring my facial expression (which I coincidentally find hilarious), this outfit consists of jumping on a trend roughly a year later than everyone else. The morning's bleary eyes decided it was time to try out a midi, however, it being "too yellow" resulted in bringing out the classic cohen technique: add a band tee. My collection's not the biggest, but there are two Arctic Monkeys, two Smiths, one Black Lips, and this, which I purchased from the children's section of H+M a summer or two ago. For now there is just one midi-dress in my wardrobe, and I'm not wholly convinced that I'll add to it, as I'm pretty sure I look even shorter than I actually am (5'4", FYI). Although it does do a rather good job of covering my ice-cream baby, and that's all I really look for in a dress.


Today is the last day of my current internship, cue going to M&S before work for chocolate chip cookies and milk chocolate digestives to dunk in our tea. Although I'm sad to be leaving, I am not sorry to avoid commuting past the Olympic Park during the first week of the Games. I'm going to try and find a pub tonight that's showing the Opening Ceremony as I wasn't lucky enough to get tickets (or rich enough to be able to afford them). Did any of you manage to get tickets for events?

  11. Such a good idea to wear a dress as a skirt! I always refrain from buying sleevless dresses since I feel like I'll only have a month or two to wear them but now, well, you've given me ideas! The midi style does suit you well, 5'4" or not. I used to think I was sooo short (I'm around the same height) and then, I started working at a place where I'm the tallest cashier; everyone asks me to reach for stuff on higher shelves!

    1. I felt like I might be too in your face with bright yellow, so wanted to break it up a bit - you could always stick a jumper on, or a button-up blouse?
      aha, really?? Short girls unite! xx

  12. I'm 5'4" too and I've tried on several midi skirts and each time i've thought, "there is no way I can get away with this" but I'm thinking I might just give it a go after seeing your post! x

  14. Love that dress, such a gorgeous colour and it looks fantastic on you!
    I'm too nervous to try a midi skirt because I'm worried my legs will just look stumpy!
    I'm not going to the olympics, my brother's going to the women's volleyball though! x
