Polka dots for an outdoor wedding

I'm back! We had a wonderful trip, coming home well-rested, well-fed and in awe of the charms of Eastern Europe. Thank you again to my guest posters for your inspiring remixes while I was away.

I wore this outfit for the afternoon wedding of one of my university roommates last month, which took place on a sun-drenched golf course. I had thrifted my Laundry by Shelli Segal silk polka dot dress (a size too big but impossible to pass up!) over the summer and couldn't wait to wear it. I played it up with red lipstick, pearls, a white and gold belt, gold clutch and slingbacks. I didn't get it in any of the pictures, but I also wore a long, slim neutral blazer with gold buttons. A more dramatic look could be created by adding extra pearl necklaces of varying sizes, large dark sunglasses, a head scarf and short lace gloves. Complete this look with a convertible or speedboat.

    You look so beautiful in this outfit! It's got a retro pin up girl look, without being over the top. Your curly hair is the perfect compliment to this outfit!
