I’ve mentioned my love of dresses during the sticky summer months a few times here on the blog, so when I made this little knit number, I knew I would have to blog about it! I love the classic fit of the dress, the fresh midi length, the elbow sleeves, and the fact that it’s oh-so comfortable. I made it from a double sided knit fabric that is striped on one side, and polka dotted on the other. It’s so fun to see the dots peeking out every now and then.
This dress has already become quite a staple in my wardrobe and I’ve worn it everywhere from dinner to the coffee shop to the movies. I love pairing it with my favorite pointy-toe studded shoes. They are basically as close as I can get to Valentino rock stud flats, and I’m okay with that. For this look, I borrowed my sisters adorable neutral handbag with gold chain detailing. I think it finishes the look off perfectly. The resulting outfit was just right for a little reading and chatting at my favorite coffee spot…although it was a little too hot for that Americano I ordered!
