when the day turns into night..

cardigan : Primark
shoes : Clothing at Tesco
dress : Monsoon Fusion
sandals : SheLikes*
I'm currently in the Lakes on a bit of a last minute trip, so having been told I had a very limited amount of luggage space, (waah - I'm usually the one who packs about four outfits per day for holidays as they seem to make me more indecisive than usual!) I was having a bit of a little packing stress the other day. Desperate to find something transitional which I could wear during the day for site-seeing and suchlike, but then dress up a little for a meal out in the evening.

I remembered this dress, which is a Monsoon Fusion range one from last year (or maybe the year before), which I recently picked up for pennies on eBay. Apparently it has some sort of printing error on the fabric, which makes it a reject, but I couldn't see anything. With a cardigan which is quickly becoming my new favourite item of knitwear and a pair of flat shoes, I reckoned this would suit a day of wandering around touristy attractions, going on boat trips and the like. But then I was a little stuck, trying to think of a pair of shoes which would go with this dress and be suitable for dinner plans. Argh.

 It was ok, though, because this is where She Likes saved the day, purely by chance.When they'd asked me about picking an item from the site, I knew what I'd had my eye on. Ever since Sophie posted about her pretty pink sandals in a recent post, I knew I needed to track a pair down, so I asked for them. Sadly it was not to be, as the last pair in my size had a fault, but the lovely folks sent me these ones instead. And how perfect are the colours for this dress? They're also really comfortable and a little higher than the pink version, I think, so even better really.

That has to be fate, right? I love it when things work out like this.


  1. I am a bit in love with those shoes, fate indeed!

  2. Loving those Tesco flats, I may have to venture to a larger store to investigate. The heels are very pretty too.

  3. I hope you have a lovely time in the Lakes!

    I absolutely love the pretty colours in this outfit- the She Likesshoes are absolutely gorgeous!

  5. You're right those sandals are just perfect for that gorgeous dress, I like them even more than the pink pair. I love the Fusion range, but they don't go up to my size sadly.
