Emerald City

Apparently I've developed an addiction to polka dot skirts - I have 4 now! I guess it's just one of my favourite patterns, along with florals in every form.










Vintage cream satin nightdress worn as a blouse, £2 from a charity shop
Emerald green poofy skirt, £5 from Primark
Dark pink cardi, £11 from Topshop
Black leather plaited belt, 50p from a charity shop
Grey leather ballet flats, £2.70 from Topshop
Multicoloured bead charm bracelet, a gift (from Accessorize)

I agree with you completely on your choice of patterns. Although florals would win out over polka dots for my top spot. I love the colour of your skirt. It's truly gorgeous and perfect for summer.
