POLKA DOT PARADE

I will never tire of classic navy and white stripes but lately I've also been drawn to polka dots in the same palette! There are lots of fun options for summer that are equal parts playful and sophisticated...



(1) Splendid top (2) AG skinny jeans (3) J.Crew camisole
(4) Ban.do bow (5) Amanda Uprichard bow top (love the back too!)
(6) Madewell bikini top and bottom (7) Diane von Furstenberg shift dress


I'm also a little in love with this dress (now on sale!) for summer parties. How do you feel about polka dots?

Love all of these! There's a navy and white polka dot skirt at the Limited that I've had my eye on forever. I think I might just have to pull the trigger!

Navy and white are the ultimate combination. It's fun, classic, and slimming. My favorite!

Mildly obsessed to say the very least. Love these choices. I have been crushing on the DVF Enny dress in black for months, but I might have a found a new fave in the navy!
