Return of the Pink Gingham Skirt
Well, looks like it’s that time of year again, folks…
… the time when I start wearing wall-to-wall gingham, and don’t stop until… well, EVER, really. I can’t help it, though – to me, summer and gingham go together like wine and chocolate, so I’m making the most of them both while I have them. This skirt is one of four I own in this print, then there’s the dress I wore in my last post, plus… actually, let’s just scrap that line of thought, shall we?
Anyway, these photos were taken on another gloriously sunny day last week, and if I look a little distracted in them, here’s why:
Cows. Lots of ’em. By the time we were done with the photos, the entire herd had gathered at the fence, and were standing there watching me with undisguised interest. I dunno, I guess cows like gingham, too? WHO KNEW? They were possibly one of the more unusual audiences I’ve had while taking outfit photos, but definitely the most polite – I mean, there was no yelling, no beeping of the horn, no shouts of “GINGER!” Cows: better than some people, and that’s a fact.
Oh, speaking of animals that I like better than people, you can’t really see it properly, but this outfit also features the “lucky” horse head necklace I got when I was 11, and swore I’d wear every single day. Well, I obviously fell foul of that promise, so I can’t say it’s brought me much luck, but reading that diary entry a few weeks ago promoted me to dig it out of my jewellery box, and then THAT prompted me to re-organise the aforementioned jewellery box, and finally untangle all of the necklaces that were lurking within it. It took the best part of an hour, no exaggeration, but now that I have everything organised again, I’m actually wearing some of that jewellery I keep forgetting I have. So maybe it DID bring me a bit of luck, after all?
