outfit post: My Sunday Best

Navy and White polka dots make a good Sunday, better. (Photos: Bella Q)
There are some days when nothing looks better to me the crisp, chic tones of navy blue and white. Those days are often on a Sunday. Sunday is the day in which you check out of the daily worries of your life, and nourish your spirit, reflecting on the good days to come.


This is me wearing my "Sunday Best." It's a lightweight navy blue/white sheer chiffon polka dot frock, and a vintage ivory Castleberry knit jacket, trimmed in navy piping and finished off with gold-tone buttons. The cherry on this Sunday are the shoes, a recent score from Nordstrom Rack: shiny white patent leather platform cork-heeled wedges. Comfortable and chic, I plan to wear them everyday of the week.
Now Wearing: 
  • Vintage Castleberry knit jacket
  • Navy polka dot chiffon dress, c/o Oasap
  • Vintage '60's wicker handbag
  • Navy tights, similar HERE
  • Fresh Press white patent wedges, c/o Nordstrom Rack (via gift card)

Those are some great shoes! I love your description of Sundays being the day to nourish our spirits. And fortunately we don't have to sit in a building to do it either. ;)

There you are in your beautiful polka dots again, and with your hair as the perfect accessory. Navy is one of my favorites and with the white shoes, what a great way to spend Sunday. You are always the best any day of the week!

Gorgeous dress! I never used to like the combination of navy & white, but it has grown on me so much in the last year or so. It's very elegant.
