MY OUTFIT | Polka Dots & Leather


I spotted (pun intended) this dress at a secondhand store a while back and was initially thinking of hemming it shorter, but after wearing it a few times I’ve learned to love the length. The cascading spots are super fun and flattering (even though I usually prefer short short dresses). I am loooonging for Springtime to get here so I can lose the leather jacket and add an oversized sunhat. Anyone else over the cold?

  1. Perfect length, lovely skirt and outfit all together! I take inspiration from your blog and enjoy your DIY ideas, great styling!

  2. I love the polka dots and leather, but what really pulls together the look and makes it edgy is the chain strap flats. Love this DIY project. Thanks for a great blog…following along from Hong Kong!
    If you get a chance, I would love for you to stop by and see my Designer Spotlight post styling a vintage Betmar hat…a fun PLAY style! Have a great weekend!

    Amazing outfit! I like how you combine a feminine dress with a touch of leather. Very edgy! It’s also an amazing photo shoot! Looks like you’re having a lot of fun shooting it.

    And by the way, the shoes is amazing! I’ll absolutely make one in no time

  24. You look fantastic. I didn’t realize that the leather jacket would complement with a long skirt. The shoes made a statement as well. It completed your get up. What do you call this style? What did you do to the shoes?

    I instantly fell in love with those shoes and when I was searching where you bought them I couldn’t believe they were a DIY! Very creative! Definitely making a pair. Thanks for the idea. =)


  26. While I like your outfit I really love how you used the color yellow as a theme in the background. Well done!
