I can just imagine my grandma’s reaction if I told her I was wearing polka dots and windowpane print together. read more

I tried this combination with my black and white dot dress a few weeks ago, but decided that the structure and weight of this striped dress worked better. The shape also allowed me to add the belt and bib necklace, which tie it all together. read more
