Guest Post: Donna of Polka Dot PInk

Whilst i’m away on a family trip to wonderful (if not slightly wet & windy) Cornwall, i am handing the blog over to some amazing ladies/friends. To each i asked the same thing;

What is your go-to item this Autumn?

Today i present you my lovely blogging buddy

Donna of Polkadot-Pink.

When you think of a go-to item of clothing, do you think comfort or style? Is it possible for a go-to item to be both? Personally, I think yes. However, I’m a girl where comfort will always win so if my go-to item happens to be stylish as well as comfy, then surely it’s a winner? Today, I’m sharing with you my latest go-to item, the denim t-shirt dress

Dresses have always been and will always be my go-to item. I’m curvy and short, dresses and me were meant to be. I bought this Topshop dress a month ago, with my trip to Berlin in mind. Let me tell you, I’m so glad I did! For days exploring a capital city, it’s the perfect dress. I mean, what doesn’t match a denim dress? When hand luggage limits you to two pairs of shoes, one coat and little else, these kind of dresses are like gold dust. 

// Dress :: Topshop // Tights :: Forever21 // Boots :: Topshop // Camera :: DianaF+ //

I wore this dress over and over again. The first time I wore it, we went to explore a brewery which had closed almost twenty years ago. I chose to team it with chunky burgundy boots and heart print tights. Stomping through glass, wire and grime, my dignity remained intact thanks to the length of this dress. Exploring with my DianaF+ camera, I found I could easily manoeuvre for those low shots.

The eagle-eyed among you will spy my jacket. Yes, it’s the Seasalt Seafolly Jacket you saw Rachel wearing just weeks ago. There’s only so many times I can be soaked whilst wearing a pac-a-mac! This coat is perfect for any autumn shower. It would have been my go-to item had Rachel not snaffled it first, I can’t recommend it enough. 

What’s your go-to item? Are you a dress lover too? 

For more Berlin tales, come say hello at, I’d love to see you there.
