Out of all of my clothes, this (now very old) C. Wonder dress is one of those pieces (also seen here + here) I reach for again and again and again. A little polka dot dress is just so classic and versatile! I’ve had this one forever now but have linked to a few very similar options below. If you don’t have a great polka dot dress I’d suggest getting one. You can wear it with pretty much everything, but it’s a little more interesting than a regular old LBD. Here, I just added a classic red bandana but it’s equally cute paired with a denim jacket, with tights + black booties, or even layered over a black turtleneck when the temps cool down.
I hope you guys are having a great week! Apologies for missing a post yesterday (I never miss a post!!)… after all of the birthday shenanigans and travel, I needed a day off yesterday. On Tuesday evening I hosted a fun birthday happy hour at Gilligan’s (my most favorite spot for an outdoor cocktail!) but prior to that I’d been going, going, going between Charleston, the debate, and a few other life things. We’re back to regular programming over here and I have some fun stuff planned for the next few days!

So freaking cute!
Thank you Erin! xo
The dress is cute on you. I’m not really a polka dot fan but I can see your stance on it being more interesting than the LBD and just as versatile. Also, question about the fit of your / any Burberry trench coat. I want one in the future. How do you find the fit in the back and armpits when you lean forward? My current trench from Banana Republic, which is a great affordable option, I’ve noticed generally fits me but when I reach forward its tight. Like maybe I’m making gains in the gym but I wonder. But yeah, how do you find the sizing? Happy birthday again btw! 🙂
I would definitely recommend trying your Burberry trench on in person. I find they are cut a little narrow through the shoulders. I am usually a size 6 in jackets/tops/dresses, and went with an 8 in my trench!
You’re looking so pretty and Western chic in this outfit! I’m loving your dress and bandana!
Thank you Natali!!! xo
That bandana is the perfect addition! Glad you took a day off, lady; you deserved it for sure! Happy Thursday!
Thanks, Jenn! Hope you had a great day!!
man i love polka dots! this is such a cute dress on you!
roundup on every kind of fall boots on my blog if youre interested!
Thank you so much Brittany! x
Ah, RIP C.Wonder! Seriously, why did that store have to go? I know there’s something similar on QVC now but it’s not the same :/ I remember seeing this dress in stores, I love a piece that you can wear over and over again like that!

I feel the same way. Some of their stuff was cheap / a little overpriced at times… BUT then there would be such great gems like this, and my favorite fur coat. I’m so glad I got this dress… it’s one of my all time faves! xo
Cute dress! Lovely!
love these polkadots and the little pop of red! hope you have a great weekend!!
Thanks, Allie! Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well! xo
Grace you’re such a mega babe here (and always). Love how you’ve made this dress look completely different with the cute little bandana necktie and trench.
Aw, you are the sweetest, B! Love you! xo
