spots and stripes

Combining my love of polka dots and stripes. And flowers. This is also known as the most impractical outfit ever, because it is actually a sweater over a playsuit. Over tights. Basically, it’s the dumbest idea ever/don’t even think about going to the toilet in this get-up. At least it looks cute, right? Note to self: look into buying a polka dot skirt or shorts, in order to make this outfit more practical and wearable.

  18. Jess Loves Fred July 1, 2010

    I completely know what you mean by those outfits you can't go to the toilet in. I just pee before and don't drink any water if possible while wearing whatever's restricting me from relieving my bladder.

    Stripes + spots always works. This is gorgeous.

  19. Miranda July 1, 2010

    Haha I had the same thing last week, I had a shirt over a jumpsuit and then thought wait this is not practical at all so I changed it, but it looks cute!

  20. iamabimarvel July 1, 2010

    Hope you figured out how to wear those frilly socks below.

  32. Jada C. July 2, 2010

    haha! I've done something like this before…I had a floral jumpsuit and wore a skirt over it. At least it does look good :] I never thought of mixing polka dots and stripes, but it looks SO cute !

    Your blog is really lovely (:

  39. Twobreadsplease July 2, 2010

  45. avalonne lou summers July 3, 2010

    It's not dumb, my dear. Seriously, it's an effective way to try out new looks! I love polka dots and stripes, I think it's perfect. Is this romper by any chance from Urban Outfitters? I wish I had purchased that white and polka dot romper from Urban last fall… boo!

  46. Sundari July 3, 2010

    hehe, I remember wearing a playsuit with tights and something similarly difficult on top. Toilet trips were indeed a hassle.

  47. ari July 3, 2010

    love the polk-a-dots with stripes.
    polk-a-dots are my latest addiction, I am currently crazy for them… I would have never noticed it's a sweater over a jumpsuit, it looks great, but you are so right about inpractical outfits, sometimes when I wear lots of layers with tights it's such a hassle, ! cute blog by the way πŸ˜‰


  48. TAM + SAM July 4, 2010

    Great outfit.

  49. Teresa July 4, 2010

    This is so cool! I love that combo! I'm a stripes addict too! πŸ™‚

  50. Kaya July 5, 2010

    You're blog is so great, you have a very good taste and i think we have the same πŸ™‚ i'm a fan now:-))

  51. Kaya July 5, 2010

    i never would really thought to collaborate stipes with spots. both draperies are so lovely and have dresses, blouses and jerseys with them. the skirt is very cute.

  52. JT July 15, 2010

    OMG this is sooooo amazing!!!!
    You look so awesome, love the mix of stripes and polka dots!!

    saving this to my inspiration file!!
