OOTD- Dots on Dots on Dots

It was hotter than Hades outside this weekend, so my first thought was give me an ice cold drink and then my second thought was, how about some shorts? I've had these shorts for ages but haven't worn them even though I say to myself, I'll wear them this weekend. So I just did it for once and went on polka dot overload. Dots on top and dots on the bottom, a little too much? I didn't give it too much thought because with my hair up, my shades on and legs and arms out, I was ready for the heat.

Have you gone full gusto with pattern mixing or have you taken baby steps like me?

Outfit Details:
Polka dot top- Old Navy (cute alternative here, here in petite size, cute cami alternative here)
Polka dot shorts and chain link bracelet- J.Crew (short alternative here and here) (bracelet alternative here, here and here)
Sunglasses- House of Harlow (cute alternative here)
Olive green handbag- 3.1 Phillip Lim (get the Pashli version here in big and here in smaller)
Arrow necklace- Stella & Dot (available here)


  1. You look really nice in shorts.

  2. I adore this look and love your shades. I would probably lose/destroy them in a nano second though, so I'm reduced to cheapies

    adorable!! i love dots and this combo is so fun! xox P

  4. I'm all for pattern mixing. I've done the usual floral/polka dots and floral/stripes. But I'm gonna try to do floral/floral one of these days.

    Meanwhile, cute look.

  5. I can't let your dots-on-dots go by without a comment! I love it-- I think you look perfectly summery, and that bag is gorgeous.

  6. You are a lot braver than I am!! I love the idea of floral/floral.

  7. Thanks! These are my favorite pair of shades, but then again I don't have that many.
    If I spend money on a pair of sunglass, then there's no way I'm letting them out of my sight, so to speak. :)

  8. Thank you!! And to think that I wouldn't have gone out the house in shorts years ago.


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
