how to wear a lime green dress
Lime green, a colour that my eleven year old self thought was possibly the best colour in the world when it came to clothing. Back in the nineties everything had a stint at being mega trendy and for a brief while, lime green was my lusted after shade. Needless to say my parents did not permit me to fill my wardrobe with hi-vis attire, in fact much of it was black or white at that point from recollection.

On one of those Asos sale trawls a couple of years ago (come on, we've all been there) I came across this dress going cheap and for some reason made a choice to buy. It was al about the collar really; it reminds me of a monarch butterfly.

Funny how this bold shade of green more or less blends in to the surroundings while in the countryside but it's so out of place elsewhere. C commented how useful it had been while trying to locate me in Homebase. One of my loathings in life, stores so enormous you cannot find the person you came in with and there's no phone signal to call them and wail that you can't find them. Such a waste of time looking up and down aisles with a clenched jaw when virtually all the men are wearing a uniform of jeans with grey, navy, or  black tops. It's like a frustrating game of Where's Wally while laden with a basket.

Apparently lime green is both the way to blend in and stand out. Who knew?

  1. Asos sale trawls? Oh yes I've been there alright!
    I had to laugh at the Where's Wally comment, why do men have to wander off in the first place?
    The collar is very pretty, and it is odd how you blend in in the countryside, you'd think a bold shade would jar against the natural colours but it just goes to show how vibrant the countryside can be!

  2. Lovely set of photos , you could not have choosen a better colour suits you so well, and there is no choice to be out in the countryside or wandering round a massive store ,countryside wins every time.

  3. You'd struggle to wear that today, at least my work garden and wildflower meadows are getting a good soaking

  4. Ha ha, yes I HAVE been there in the Asos sale trawl! Not for a while though as I got bored with asos.
    It is really interesting the way that green blends in with the countryside! And yet, it is SO uncohesive everywhere else in backgrounds! The collar is Amazing! I really like it! When I was 14-15, I remember buying 2 for £10 on vest tops in Miss Selfridge and I had one in.black and one in this green shade which my sister was always rude about. I wore them so much! I think I even had a wrap skirt from C&A in that hue! It must've been the same time!
