OOTD: Polka Dots and Pearls

There are few items more classic than collared dresses, polka dots and strings of pearls. Combine them all together and you’ve got an incredibly timeless, ladylike, elegant look!

I love this navy blue and white polka dot dress from Fashion Rush. It has so many charming details. First of all, the dress is 2 pieces. There’s a sheer blue collared dress with white polka dots, but it’s entirely see-through. So underneath goes a navy spaghetti-strap slip to make it wearable. The buttons down the front are so cute, and the dress ties into a bow in the back. Delightful!

I upped the ladylike vibe with this long string of (fake) pearls from Forever 21. This strand is so long, it doesn’t go with many things unless you wrap it around itself.

Last but not least, I wanted to bring out the white of the polka dots and the pearls. So I opted for these demure white ballet flats from H&M. Not only are they super-comfortable, but the shiny patent material means that you can wipe the dirt right off, so you can keep them nice for a long time.

 

Complete with my blonde curls, I felt like a 50s housewife (without all the sexism and abuse and several screaming children). Hooray!
