It’s Electric

I’m usually one to lay the accessories on thick. I love adding layer upon layer, clinking and clanking as I go as they all swing around and bang together.

I stack those bracelets all up and down my arm. It’s an arm party going on each and every day on these limbs.

Giant earrings swing from my ears, and I generally wear at least one necklace, if not a few more all at once.

But when you’re wearing electric neon polka dots, it kinda feels right to keep the rest of the ensemble quiet. Doncha think? A little contrast of color, and I was done.

Do you keep it simple when it comes to your accessories? Or do you layer them up like I usually do? Do you like to go bold with your color come summer time? Or perhaps even year round?

Polka Dots and Moonbeams, by Frank Sinatra

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an “Oh, beg your pardon”
Suddenly I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug-nosed dream

The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said “May I have the next one?”
In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we floated over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter
I know the meaning of the words “Ever after”
And I’ll always see polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss the pug-nosed dream


  1. I agree with Miriam above, fresh is just the right word! Love an easy dress in the summertime (as you know!)…
    I’m emailing you now…no need to reply until you’re back, ok?

  2. Oh my word, this pink is SO PRETTY on you! This is one of my favourite outfit posts you’ve done…the dress is totally adorable and really suits you.
