Derby Dressing


Ahhh Polka Dots a tried and true pattern for myself. At point in my life it was quite the staple in my closet. When I hit a bit of a rough patch I tossed them for a more muted (and frankly depressing) look. As my confidence has grown over the years thanks in part to lifestyle changes and a sweetie who truly loves me for me I found this pattern creeping back into my closet. Whether it was my Rachel Rachel Roy creme polka dot pants or this dress I'm featuring, I'm loving this print again.

Recently one of my favorite bloggers Darlene of Suits, Heels & Curves started throwing closet sales via her FB Page. I stumbled on to one on a pretty boring night up here in The Heights and boom! this dress popped up and had to be mine. I decided to wear it for the Kentucky Derby celebration we had at work because it fit the spring time casual look so many women want when attending a shindig for the Derby.
