Not sure what's up with the Alfalfa piece of hair sticking straight up...I thought I pinned down all of those.
Darn rebellious summer hair.
Before I started my blog, I had a little sleeveless polka dot dress. I spent a lot of time researching all the different ways I could wear it (I was still discovering that you didn't have to pair dresses with the little string that came with it, you know). I came across what I thought was a reputable site about fashion. It had all the typical "don't mix black or grey with brown" and "no white after Labor Day" advice, so the advice about polka dots seemed especially viable. When it comes to wearing polka dots, the site said that you should be careful not to pair dotted items with circular jewelry or other polka dots. I can't remember why, but I think it said something about looking like you tried too hard to match everything. Consider this outfit my official rebuttal. I'm pretty convinced that you can wear polka dots with just about anything and it will look fine.
Also, just because it's on the internet...that doesn't mean you have to take it seriously. This blog included.
