Dots for Days

Hello there! It's Elana from Room 334, showing you one my absolute favorite pieces that I've borrowed so far: a polka dot dress from Ashely of Southern (California) Belle! I can't even explain how much I love Ashley, her blog, and her closet so when she surprised me by sending this dress to borrow, it just made me love her that much more. Ashley shares my love of fit and flare dresses so it's no surprise that the cut of it is what really made me enamored. Combine that with polka dots, and you have my perfect dress right here. 

I snuck it a couple of wears out of this dress before I had to send it along and since I paired it with a cardigan the first time (as you can see by scrolling down), I wanted to layer it a bit different for a different look. I can't get enough of layering items over dresses to make them more versatile, so knotting this lavender Madewell button down seemed like the perfect fit to me. And while I'm starting to realize that I accidentally wear these oxfords in many of my Flock Together posts, they just always seem to work.

On an unrelated note, how frustrating is it when it's too bright outside for good pictures? That was my problem the day I took these, but they'll do.

The second way I wore it, here:

Of course, Ashley looks absolutely adorable in her dress. The mustard tights are pure brilliance.
See her full post here.

Is it that time where I bombard you with links? I think it is. We could definitely use more "likes" on our Facebook page, we'd love to chat with you on Twitter, and I hope you stop by my blog for the full outfit details!
