It’s Polka Dot Week here at Forever Amber, folks: roll up for your daily dose of dots!
OK, OK, I didn’t actually intend to show you back-to-back polka dots this week, or, indeed to photograph this skirt quite so soon after posting the photos of its twin sister. I mean, I know you’re all perfectly well aware that I basically just have three outfits, in different prints and colours, but it seemed a little soon even for me. I did want to WEAR the skirt, though, and if a blogger wears an outfit, but doesn’t take photos of it, did it even happen? I think not: and I also think that the weather’s so changeable right now I have to grab photos whenever it’s not raining, so there you have it.
Speaking of “not raining”, it actually WAS raining not long before these photos were taken, which is why you get some rare shots of me outdoors without sunglasses. This is a good illustration of why I don’t normally do this, though, because even although it looks pretty dull in the photos, this was STILL too bright for my stupidly sensitive eyes, which means these were the only usable photos we got, due to me squinting in most of them. I did resort to wearing the glasses in the end, but as we got back in the car, Terry was all, “Yeah, you had your eyes closed in almost all of those,” and yup, he was right.
Anyway, that aside, I really, really love these skirts, as if you couldn’t tell. Because they’re so big, and the print so bold, I think the key to making them work is to keep the outfit super-simple. And, I mean, I think that’s the key to almost ALL outfits, to be perfectly honest, but I think these skirts could easily veer into Minnie Mouse territory if you’re not careful, which is why I went with black shoes rather than bright ones. I did manage to resist yet another full-on monochrome look, mind you… but only just. Pretty sure that’s how I’ll be wearing it next time, though, now that I’ve shown the token “pop” of colour…
