Here is where I want to make a “She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini” joke, but unfortunately, this yellow polka dot maxi dress is neither itsy, not bitsy, nor teenie, nor weenie, and it is also most definitely not a bikini.
So I’ll spare ya the puns and get right to it.
I absolutely adore the sweet yellow polka dot pattern of this dress. As if that couldn’t get more adorable, it’s got ruffles. And if you’re not already shaking from a sugar overdose, it also has a row of buttons all down the front like an old-fashioned prairie dress.
I’m not a fan of overly sweet apparel, and honestly when I describe this dress it sounds like such a caricature. But when I put it on? It’s actually really pretty and really flattering – feminine without being too saccharine.
To play up the funky pattern and bright yellow color, I paired the dress with these white and floral print pumps. Do they clash a bit? Yes, of course. But the focus of this outfit is definitely more “fun with fashion” and I definitely had fun putting it together!
