Little Polka Dot Dress.

Never underestimate the power of a great dress. You know, the kind of dress that pulls you out of a bad mood, makes you want to twirl, and just feels good to wear!

Great personal style (to me) is about dressing in a way that makes you look your best and feel your happiest.

That’s why I love a whimsical print so much. Polka dots, palm leaves, stripes, some florals – they’re all become staples in my otherwise plain wardrobe. When I spied this contrasting polka dot dress at Ann Taylor I knew I needed it. I love a good polka dot but this one is extra special. It’s a little bit mod, and extremely flattering (the contrasting panel of white polka dots on black is so slimming).  Ordinarily I would pair a dress like this with a nude shoe but for fun (and to continue the pattern play) I added a tweed pump. So fun. I accessorized with this pretty pearl slider bangle (love the gold on gold version too!) and these tortoise sunglasses and was ready to go.

The whole look is perfect for the office but still works if you have a date/event/party afterward. This dress is perfect for those days when I am running around with meetings in the city and need to look polished and professional but then am meeting friends (or a date) for drinks and dinner later so still want to be wearing something fun.

Ann Taylor has so many great dresses (and jewels!) right now.

Besides the pieces I’m wearing I’m absolutely loving these simple pearl drops. This printed wrap dress (looks designer!). Also, this knotted striped dress (another super slimming one), and these gold earrings.
