Blush Pink & Polka Dots

navy blue dress polka dots

When you think of holiday party attire, your mind first goes to glitzy gold, festive plaid, sequins, LBDs, and the like. Right? To switch it up for a fun holiday party I had over the weekend, I went with something a bit out of the ordinary — navy, light pink, and polka dots. I tend to stick to preppy plaids and glamorous black and gold looks, but this look that’s a bit more whimsical felt just right for the occasion!

I don’t know what the heck is going on with the weather in Chicago, but I’m not mad about it! Getting to be outside taking in all of the holiday sights and sounds without freezing to your core is pretty magical. But I’ll be honest, it doesn’t really *feel* like the holidays. Getting away with a dress and no tights in December, though? I’ll take it!

    Okay, MASSIVE jealousy over how freaking cute that dress is! I may just have to get it as a Christmas present to myself.

    Nice polka dot dress and I like the heels too. Its not too cold right now in the northeast to wear dresses. Once winter decides to show up its back to jeans, jackets and sneakers. Unless there is an occasion to dress up.

    I seriously LOVE how girly this outfit is! The pink and polka dots make it such a feminine look and the pom hat adds some winter flair. So cute!

    I love love love the lace detail on the dress and it goes so well with the pumps and the beautiful backdrop. This would make a gorgeous wedding event dress too like a shower 🙂
