Welcome to the monthly edition of Match Made in Seven! We are an international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie – and then we style an outfit based on that theme. This month Bettye chose the theme of Midsummer’s Eve!
For me, yellow is the colour of Summer. It reminds me of buttercups, bumble bees and sunshine. It’s such a cheerful colour that always makes me feel happier when I wear it. I previously featured this dress almost two years ago when I was visiting my Dad in France. We go every Summer for a week or so, and I’m really looking forward to going back soon 🙂
When Bettye told us her choice of theme I was a little nonplussed. Not because I didn’t have anything appropriate (that would be impossible with the amount of clothes I have!). It was more that I was spoilt for choice I suppose. A theme that you can interpret many different ways is sometimes harder than a more specific one. At first I thought of a pink tulle maxi skirt or a colourful floral print dress, but I don’t have a tulle skirt (shocking, I know). I didn’t feel in the mood for florals, but looking through my wardrobe I was naturally drawn to sunny yellow.
I was going to play it safe and wear the same gold wedge espadrilles and straw crab motif bag as I did when I wore this dress before. But then Isobel spotted these green sandals and suggested I try them instead. She then disappeared into “Blog HQ” (aka the disaster room) and came out with the pineapple bag. At first I said it was too much yellow, but then I looked again and really liked it. I’d have to say she gets it from me 😉
The sunglasses are not really very practical, but they add a little fun to the outfit. And if you’re basking in the sun and want to go to sleep you can just cover the lenses with the daisies and drift off…
