Anyone else feel like just about everything polka-dotted looks at least slightly retro? Even brand-new stuff in relatively contemporary shapes and cuts just makes me think 50s diners and Betty Boop when polka dots come into play. And not in a bad way – not at all! I love me some retro and repro as much as the next gal. Just strikes me as odd since plaids, stripes, and florals are easily as common but don’t feel as closely associated with a past era. Anyhoo, this cotton voile dress is a late summer favorite. Lightweight, comfy, and retro-cute. read more

So my coral Old Navy dress from last year came down with a bad case of the Wonky Hemline after a few washings, and I bought this one at a discount to replace it. It’s a little more on the glowy orange side than I expected, but I can work with that, too. Though I’ll probably temper it with other colors when I wear it so as not to be mistaken for a traffic cone. read more

This outfit is many weeks old, but when I got dressed for my Fox 9 Morning Show segment last week I realized there was some serious overlap. Here I did red accents and a leopard tank. I almost wore this exact outfit to the studio, but the tank has a bit of wear around the collar, so I made some swaps, as you’ll see below! read more
