Paper Dolls – Brights

Brights

I asked you all what you wanted me to create with my paper dolls next and although it was close, Brights won by just one vote with dresses in second place. Brights has a different definition for some when it comes to fashion. To me it is anything that can brighten up an outfit whether it be a pastel yellow or a neon pink. Below you will find four colors, 12 outfits, I consider bright.

Polka Dot Style

Polka Dots

Recently a friend sent me a tweet asking what I thought about polka dots and if they were staying in style. I told her my personal opinion which others have agreed with…polka dots never go out of style. They are a classic and will be around for a long time. Whether you like the minimal look with a polka dotted iPhone case or a bold tight, they will be around for a long long time. This of course got me thinking and I had no choice but to play with my adult version of paper dolls and bring you polka dot style:

Polka Dot Dress

Polka Dot Dress

There is something about a cute flowy polka dot dress that makes me think of the 1950s. Add a pink peep toe pump to compliment the navy blue and a Balenciaga bag(I’m dieing just thinking about one!) and you are good to go. If you want to dress it down, throw on a pair of flats and a denim jacket. Easy day to night look.

Polka Dots and Stripes Casual

Polka Dot/Stripes

I know, sounds crazy right? Polk dots AND stripes??!! But look how polished it looks with a skinny denim and rich blue flat? Add in the Hamilton tote that you all know I love and you have the perfect casual look for running errands or hanging out with your girls. (Side note: I NEED those jeans!)

Polka Dot Skirt

I have personally been on the hunt for a polka dot skirt for a while now. I’ve mostly been looking at pencil skirts, but there is something intriguing about this one. I love the waist structure with the bell shaped bottom. Wear a pair of flats, boots or wedges in and you good to go. The denim jacket is the perfect thing to throw on when there is a chill in the air.

Polka Dot Pants

Polka Dot Pants

This look is getting to be my uniform this winter. Just about everyday you will find me in a pair of skinny pants with flats and a cardigan sweater. It is easy and it is comfortable. But after a while you get tired of the same old look and need to change it up. These polka dot skinnies are the exact way to do that. Wearing a polka do pattern easily brings interest to an outfit that could be very drab and boring.

So, how do you wear your polka dots?

Ballet Flat Love

I am a ballet flat fanatic as of late. I mean I have always been in love with flats but on occasion felt they made me look dumpy. But I have been figuring out that it isn’t about the flat it is about the silhouette you wear with the flat. Because honestly I can’t imagine wearing my skinny jeans without a cute flat shoe to go with them. Below you will find my fave pairs I currently am wearing and a few pairs I am currently lusting after:
