When Life Gives You Lemons...

It's been a week since I've been home and I already have major holiday blues! My husband and I went on part two of our honeymoon and spent a few days in sunny Ras al Khaimah, UAE. We also took the opportunity to visit Abu Dhabi and Singapore which was truly amazing and beautiful! All the travel guides will be coming very soon but for now, I thought I'd share one of my favourite outfits I wore in Ras al Khaimah.

This stunning yellow maxi dress caught my attention whilst I was shopping in New Look. The colour is just beautiful and screamed holiday to me! I am often drawn to yellow pieces of clothing but often find it hard to pull off as it is a bold colour. I have a couple of yellow pieces in my wardrobe but this has got to be my favourite now!

I like how flexible the style of the dress is as it can easily be worn on or off-the-shoulder, depending on whether you are going for a more daytime or evening look. I opted for on-the-shoulder for this day as I was wearing it around the hotel in between dips in the pool (hence the untamed hair).

The maxi dress features a simple tie waist with some tassels, which really pulls it all together and adds a little something. There is also a drop hem / asymmetric feature which mades the dress slightly shorter in the front and longer in the back. As I am on the shorter side, the drop at the back actually drags on the floor slightly, which I don't mind. If I chose to wear the dress with heels, the length would've have probably been what it was supposed to be on a normal height person!

As the dress is the focus and main component of the look and also since I was on holiday and feeling rather lazy, I decided to wear a simple pair of brown sandals. As mentioned previous, the dress can easily be adapted to be worn for day or night so a pair of black, or even something bold like red, heels would immediately amp up the look for an evening outfit.

Have you purchased any yellow clothing pieces lately?
