I hope y’all enjoyed your weekend. I certainly did, but as usual it went by much too fast. I enjoyed time with my family and worked on some blogging stuff just a little. One thing I accomplished that I am so glad I can check off my to do list is getting my blog domain set-up. I am now officially my own dot.com with A Pocketful of Polka Dots! I had some blocks along the way, and made things more complicated than they needed to be when I tried setting it up myself, but with Brian’s help everything is now officially up and running correctly. I am seriously happy to have made the move and am always looking for new ways to improve this blog. Since I am so new I am always finding things I want to tweak, but I feel like things are really starting to come together.
As you know, I like to have something pretty to look forward to on Monday’s. This color block stripe dress seemed perfect for this Monday morning. I love the pleating in the skirt, as well as the stripes. It’s kind of hard to make out in this picture, but the top stripe is white and the bottom stripe is a light taupe. I promise one day soon I will be better at taking photos!
Since this dress is so neutral I wanted to add a pop of color in my shoes. I love shades of red with black and white, so these pumps seemed perfect. I love that these are a deeper red, too.
I accessorized the look with a simple gold earring and a long gold chain with crystal embellishment. I felt the necklace would stand out against the black, while offering some pretty sparkle, too.
Wearing: Dress – AB Studio, Kohl’s // Shoes – Antonio Melani, Dillards // Belt – Amazon
The final finishing touch was this cute bow belt. I think it added the perfect touch to this full skirt. I’m all ready to take on this Monday and feel great while doing it!
