Dotted Neutrality



Sweater - H&M, Skirt - vintage Max Mara courtesy of Stone Cold Vintage, Hat - Forever 21, Boots - Kate Spade

Polka dots are whimsical, girlish, timeless, cute and all those lovely things. They can even dress up something as plain and minimalistic as beige. I cannot get enough of them. I received this vintage Max Mara linen skirt a few weeks ago and finally got the chance to wear it. Its feminine A-line shape and bow front tie just screamed for some dots to accompany it. Subtle, simple, and sweet. The three S's that never let you down.
I cannot wait to wear this skirt come spring with a pair of my beloved gladiator sandals (which I basically live in when its warm out). It seems so fitting to that season. I know it is still early, but what are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

That's definitely a simple and sweet skirt! I remember having one just like it a long, long time ago. Wonder where it is now...

Usually you tend to see a lot of black and white polka dots, but I really like the neutral ones of your sweater! Subtle, simple, and sweet are definitely good words to dress by. :D

I'm not really a fan of polka dots at all but I love how you have large ones and the buttons could be matching ones too. This is really brilliantly put together and you look so lovely!

You look so amazing in this combination! I wish I could pull off that style of hat as well as you do :) I am also looking forward to sandals this spring and summer, but who knows when that will be considering this Washington weather...

JULIE ILIANA said...

love this! as for spring, unfortunately in miami, you almost always have to live in the tank-shorts-flip flops uniform :( although I try to somehow find something different than that.

When I first got this sweater from H&M, I began jumping up and down because it really is the best sweater. So comfy and cozy and the polka dots give it that fun feel. You look great pairing it with that neutral skirt. It's very chic but simple at the same time.

You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
Oh living Aten who creates life.
When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
Men see you, but know not your ways.

...thanks...sweet sugar...you are lovely...
