Outfit Post: Pointillism

You may have noticed a new little ad in our sidebar--we have the pleasure of working with a great company this month!  Sugarlips is an online shop that carries women's apparel, and they love working with bloggers.  This is our first outfit post, styling the Navy Pointillism Dress, which just arrived on the site!

I chose this dress for its vintage-meets-modern sensibility:  the style with a front and back handkerchief hem is definitely a more modern silhouette, but the polka dots appeal to my love of the 1950s.

Outfit details:  dress-c/o Sugarlips, belt-H&M, necklace-vintage via Etsy, watch, bracelets, rings-vintage, clutch-vintage, sandals-Castener (thrifted)

This dress is so easy to wear!  It is really lightweight and breathable, and I love that hemline (so flattering!). This little polka dot wallet/clutch is coming to our vintage shop this week, and it was my inspiration to add the red and white striped espadrilles to finish the look. This is such a versatile piece--I have many more ideas for how to style it in the future.

I also had to get a close up shot of the awesome 1950s lucite necklace I recently bought on Etsy.  Confession:  I hate pearls. I have never really liked them. I know they're supposed to be classic, but I can only see them as old and stuffy and oh-so-DC.  This necklace is a fun alternative.  I am also trying to show off my bun, which has a braid wrapped around it (thanks, Pinterest!).  Such an easy and classy updo for hot summer days like this one.

Thanks, Sugarlips, for this gorgeous dress--I can't wait to pair it with some of my favorite fall layering pieces. Stay tuned next week when Jayme styles another great item from their new arrivals.
