It’s been ages since I last wore this navy and white polka dot dress, which is a shame because it’s a great fit and so comfortable. I wanted to make the most of the early autumn sunshine by wearing a dress and sandals before the cold weather really sets in. (It was cool enough for tights yesterday!)
Previously, I’ve featured this dress on the blog with red accessories, but this time I stuck to a simple navy and white colour palette. I’ve probably worn polka dots more in the last few weeks than I usually would in a year! In fact I wore another dotty dress to work yesterday which will make an appearance here soon. I don’t even know if dots are “on trend” for autumn/winter, but they never really go out of fashion, do they?
I’ve made a mental note to self that I must take this navy and white polka dot dress on my next holiday. It might be just a little bit early to be planning my holiday wardrobe – it’s still six months away – but it doesn’t hurt to be organised, right? I love that this dress is stretchy and just the right thickness to keep me cool without being sheer. Another plus point is that it doesn’t crease, because I really don’t like ironing.
This white bag may also make the holiday wardrobe edit because it’s the perfect size…and the best bit is it’s reversible! You can’t see from the photos but it’s silver on the inside and has a silver pouch too. I love a two-for-the-price-of-one garment for both their value for money and space-saving convenience. A while ago I bought a reversible bomber jacket by Scotch & Soda on eBay and that got me thinking that this is a much underused concept in fashion. You may pay a bit more, but in the long term it’s probably worth it. That said, this bag was about £8, so not at all expensive.
The only jewellery I added was a pair of gold and pearl earrings and this gorgeous crochet and fabric bracelet. It was kindly sent to me by The Vegan Center and matches the dress perfectly. The Vegan Center is an online retailer selling food, clothing, jewellery, beauty products and homeware. Their products have all been verified to be 100% vegan-friendly, which gets a big thumbs up from me! They have some really fun face coverings – if we’re going to have to wear them we might as well do it in style!
