Polka Dot

So recently my friend had loads of clothes packed up to take to a charity shop (until I swept in to claim most of them) and this dress was in there. I am amazed that she was getting rid of it because it suited her so well and she loves a good polka dot, but her loss is my gain and it now has a happy place in my wardrobe.


It's actually a perfect fit for my shape as it nips in at the waist, which is where I'm smallest and then allows that bit of extra room for my hips and boobs. I also find it somehow manages to make my legs look slimmer (thank you magic dress of dreams). It's super comfy and *about to say the phrase that makes it into pretty much every blog post* it's just so easy to throw on.





I love a good polka dot and white dots on navy fabric is such a classic (although can't work out if my eyes deceive me and this is white on black?). This will be the perfect dress for summer dressed down with white trainers. Dreamy. For now though it's a bit cold so I had to whack on the black tights and wear it with these old patent shoes that were from Primark about two years ago and somehow haven't fallen apart yet. Best fiver I ever spent. It is warm enough though to whack out my summer trench coat that I still adore and will now wear until it gets cold again.

I managed to tempt Nick out of the house with the promise of coffee again so he took these photos, which I'm super happy with. As long as he doesn't get sick of coffee then my photo game is on the up.

Coat - New Look (very similar here)

Do you like polka dots? What do you think of this outfit?

  14. What a gorgeous outfit, I love polka dots and I can't believe she was about to give this dress away - I definitely would have claimed it too. ;) I usually keep all of my clothes (unless they are damaged or don't find anymore) because I love finding new ways to combine them. Speaking of - I love how you combined the dress, the coat is beautiful! xx
