Next to stripes and leopard print, polka dots are a big pattern love of mine, in-fact i really feel i don’t own enough polka dots and need some more in my life, and at the moment they’re having a bit of a fashion thing so there are lots of lovely options out there.
I picked -this maxi dress- up at the very beginning of September and then left it there hanging, just longing to be worn. Sometimes i categorise my clothing in to ‘Places i can wear it’, which is silly of course, but then sometimes i am a bit silly i guess. So this dress was in my silly mental category of ‘Lunch with the girls’ and due to busy schedules that day didn’t come around until this week.
But oh i was so glad it did as firstly, the company and food were of course wonderful, and secondly it was great to wear this dress out for the first time. I paired the navy polka dot maxi with black, which is definitely a favourite combination of mine (I know some people cringe at black and navy together but i absolutely love it) and layered a cami under and wore tights and boots as the autumn chill has certainly snuck in this week.
That’s the great thing about winter maxi dresses, you can layer under and over and there is no need to be cold or sacrifice wearing lovely dresses. Its a win win!
And just to talk boots for a second: if you’re looking for a small block heel comfy sock boot that doesn’t go too far up the calf (i find some of them can be very unflattering!) then the ones -i’m wearing here –are from asos and they are amazingly comfy and very flattering!
