Welcome back for week 11 of the Polly Dolly weekly Polyvore challenge!
Every Thursday I’ll post a new Polly Dolly Theme Challenge, then you toddle off and get creative. You can credit the items if you want and add a bit of an explanation of why you chose the pieces or you can just share your clipboard… it’s up to you. When you’re done maxing out your imaginary credit cards, simply add your link below using your blogs name as the “title” and a direct link to the specific blog post. Note: As Polyvore only publishes to Twitter or Facebook, I’ve found the easiest way is to click on your set, and go to ‘view details’. Then go to ’embed on your blog’ and copy the html (you can chose to have just your picture, or the item info as well). Paste it into your post in the html section. Easy!
The weather is getting down right chilly and I find myself pausing outside the travel agents window, looking wistfully at all the brochures of warm tropical places. Whilst most of our toes might be freezing and we’re wearing 15 different layers, I thought it would be a nice idea to dress our Dolly’s in something that screams…
I love this dress. I love the colour, print, cut and ruffle. I want it. I’d wear it whilst strolling the local markets for souvenirs, on the beach, by the hotel pool, out to dinner, out dancing. Can you tell how much I love this dress! Underneath I’d wear a yellow polka dot bikini (what else!) and attempt getting a tan. I’d wear sparkly gold flats and carry a nice big canvas tote to put them in when I want to feel my toes in the sand. The little gold and turquoise flower necklace is simple yet beautiful and a few gold bangles bought cheap add a little jingle to my walk. A hat is necessary whilst exploring but when I’m in the shade I can pop a flower behind my ear for the perfect hair accessory. A spritz of my favourite perfume, a lick of clear gloss and my natural holiday glow will leave me looking and feeling beautiful. After a full day out and about I’d find a lovely restaurant and write postcards to all my family and friends. Then I’d order a long island iced tea and some fresh prawns served with lime and aioli and put my feet up. Aidan would be drawing on the napkins and begging to go off and explore on his own. Steve and I would watch the gorgeous sunset (I’d take photos) then hold hands all the way back to the hotel.
What would you wear on a tropical holiday?
