packing polka dots.

i started packing for portland last night... i really love packing for vacations! i am bringing one of my favorite black and cream tanks to wear with a pink cardigan (similar to this outfit). it is one of my only polka dot pieces but i am hoping to add a polka dot bikini to the mix this summer and perhaps a few other patterned finds to my wishlist::


[1] beige polka dot top $40 [2] dress $70 [3] bangles $62 [4] tank $150 [5] brown skirt $58 [6] black wristlet $69 [7] pink pouch $54 [8] black skirt $110

what do you think about the pattern? do you own any polka dot pieces?

  6. I LOVE POLKADOTS! <3 If there was one print/pattern that is slowly eating away at my wardrobe space, it'll definitely be my polka dotted clothings. That umbrella is just love. I've been searching for the perfect polka dotted umbrella and I still haven't found any. :\ x

  27. I don't immediately go for pattern but I should wear more of it. I need to find a dress for my boyfriends graduation formal so I think I'll look for a little summer floral number... even though everyone else will be in floor length satin!

  55. There's absolutely nothing I love more than polka dots-in fact, I think my Matchbook bio said something to that effect! John's favorite dress, and the one I'm wearing in the photo that will inevitably accompany this, is my favorite polka dot piece-a silk DVF wrap dress, with each individual polka dot stitched on. I couldn't resist it!

  58. First I love when people tie there belts that way..I think I neeed a long skinny brown belt so I can do that all summer long. So stylish.
    And that brown and white polka dot skirt reminds me of my favorite outfit from Pretty Woman...when she is at the Polo Match...love that look!
