Outfit Post: Navy Polka Dot Peplum

Spot the Dot: When in doubt, put on a POLKA.

This outfit, for the record in 100% thrifted.  Yup, all secondhand sourced. So, yay, me. It makes also a great transitional outfit, perfect for late Spring or early Autumn outing. For some reason, navy blue is kinda magical during those times of the year. And polka dots, quite frankly are magical year 'round. I'm wearing these boxer-like shorts made out of rayon- so they are comfortable, and on a skinnier girl, probably super chic looking. 

At the moment, I'm not looking too skinny- too many juice bars, not enough walks around the lake. Boo, me. The top is cute, yeah? So fash-n-dash: it's a navy blue polka dotted peplum. Try saying THAT 3 times. In the name of matchy-matchy, I took the liberties of pairing it with my navy polka dotted boxer shorts. And you are welcome.


#SHOPSECONDHANDFIRST 100% Thrifted.
This glorious hat is a vintage wonder! It looks unworn and nearly new, but it's from the last century, circa 1960s/70s. I love the burst of floral hiding under the crown in the lining. Sassy and classy, I've got it up for sale at the shop inside Beats and Bohos, $24. (Any out-of-towners interested in this beauty, message me and we can arrange a purchase and delivery via Paypal. You can contact me via this domain name with a Bella@ right before it)

I love your navy-blue-polka-dotted-peplum! You look great! Skinny is overrated. But I haven't walked around the lake in years. Email me if you want to meet up for a stroll!

I love the polka dot on polka dot. I will have to try it and credit you. Too many juice bars? I see a hot juicy rosebud on her way to autumn, andale.

I love polka dots and navy blue and white. So this is a hit as far as I am concerned.
The hat would probably look great on me as I need a flap (rim) and a high part on my head. But it is a bit risky to send this over to the Netherlands. We don't even know whether it would fit.
