Outfit 21.6.10: monochrome blue

21.6.10: blue, lots of it



new campers

All blue! Sometimes it’s nice to just pick one colour and run with it. Plus I told you this was my fall back skirt!

Incidentally, is is ‘go to’ the same as fall back? It’s one of these American expressions I’ve never quite got my head round. I suppose it’s a bit more positive: fall back is like ‘I’ve tried or considered and rejected lots of options, so I’m going to fall back on my fall back option, which I know will work’ whereas go to is more like ‘I need to do this. I know what always works: my go to option’. Or maybe they do actually just mean the same thing and I’m just making things complicated.

top – I dyed it blue
skirt – charity shop
shoes – camper
necklace – birthday present from my loverly colleagues
earings – used to be my mum’s

    I love your shoes.
    And I think the term 'go to' is usually more positive, but it depends on the context in which it is used. Sometimes it does just mean nothing else worked today, and since I know this always works I'll 'go to' it. Either way, I think you grasp the colloquialism better than you think.

    Both expressions are more or less synonymous with "default," but it's right that go-to is more positive: you know something always works and you don't have to think about it at all. I'd be more inclined to use fall back if I just didn't FEEL like thinking about my clothing, for example, and put on the thing that I know always works. Make sense?

    Yay blue!

    I agree with Maven, love those shoes! And a go to skirt is such a closet workhorse! Love them.
