I found my yellow field…

blue 50s style prom dress

white cropped cardigan with baby blue dress

pale blue 50s style prom dress

Remember that field of yellow flowers I was looking for?

I finally found it.

I’ll let you into a secret, though: this isn’t actually a field. (And those aren’t actually “flowers”, either – but you knew that, right?) It’s a random piece of land next to a road. A very busy road. A road which was filled with commuters on their way home from work at the time these photos were taken: which is why my posing is even MORE awkward than usual here.

Actually, I was pretty impressed with the behaviour of the commuters on that road, to be perfectly honest. Normally when there are a lot of people driving by a photo location, I can guarantee I’ll get a few honks of the horn at the very least (Almost always from van drivers. WHY, van drivers: WHY? Why do you have to live up to that stereotype?!), maybe even a “GINGER!” or two, shouted through an open window, if I’m very unlucky.

Speaking of open car windows, though, that reminds me: a few weeks ago we were taking photos next to another busy road (Because sometimes that’s where the best flowers are, you know? The things I do for this blog…), and someone in a passing car slowed down to shout, “Looking good, Amber!” before driving off. And I have NO idea who it was. Now, you all know I can’t bear an unsolved mystery (Seriously, though, WHERE IS MY MEMORY CARD?!), so if you were that mystery passer-by, or if you know the mystery passer-by, please reveal yourself, and allow me to sleep soundly again at night, knowing that The Mystery of the Passing Car has finally been solved!

    That’s crazy someone shouted your name! It might just be that you’re a real life celebrity now, bask in it… Having literally just shared my own photos from a busy roadside, I can vouch for it as being a surprisingly handy, although confidence-threatening, location to shoot 😉

    Looking good, Amber! That dress was just made for you. Now, what I don’t understand is why people stop to call you “ginger”. Isn’t being ginger a ‘common’ trait in Scotland?

      “Ginger” is normally used as a derogatory term – there’s a post on it here: https://foreveramber.co.uk/2015/03/things-redheads-are-sick-of-hearing-2.html

        Yes- you answered that question to me because I didn’t get the difference! What I meant is that I don’t get why people stop to call you out on your hair since I thought having red hair was “common” in Scotland (Great Britain in general, really) Isn’t it the place with the highest red-head population in the world? If it it, what is so surprising about having red hair that compels people to call other out on it? So many questions, so little answers
        By the way, I’m in no way being or racist or derogatory- but just like you think everyone is Scandinavia is blond, I thought many people in Great Britain were red-headed

          I don’t think everyone in Scandinavia is blonde 🙂 Red hair is more common in the UK than in some other countries, but that doesn’t stop people abusing those of us who have it, unfortunately. You would have to ask them why they do it, though, I honestly have no idea!

            Weird, very weird. Red heads are incredibly rare where I live (south of Latin America) and no one goes around abusing them! There are maybe a few jokes on how they’ll bring you bad luck, but no one takes them seriously and I’ve never seen/heard of anyone being bullied for having red hair. It’s such a shame you are though, I love your hair!

    Oh, my! All I can think about is the mysterious driver was: A) A neighbour who actually knows you from real life, or B) A blog follower who casually passed you by and then recognized his/her fav blogger, which would be absolutely AWESOME!
    I am so intrigued myself now! Please, detective McNaught, we need you to solve this case! (Runs to the kitchen and gets a popocorn pack to read the coming saga, haha).

    Such a great outfit! And that field was totally worth the audience – it photographs really well.

    A) I’m so jealous of your hair. If mine was that colour I wouldn’t need to dye it every colour of the rainbow during the year.
    B) I’m also jealous of how amazing you look in this dress. When you showed it last year it made me buy it. You look all dainty and beautiful – bit like a disney princess! I looked like the evil stepsister in it….
    C) wasn’t me shouting. Do also want to desperately know now who it was!

    Beautiful set up and lovely outfit. I can’t believe people will yell ginger comments though – how incredibly rude! I hope you find the mystery driver soon. How funny!
