How I style polka dots in the summer

 

This summer I just started wearing polka dots. I've always been avoiding them because I thought they were "childish" and too "girly", which now I still think so. BUT, if you style them right they can come out fun and sexy. 

An outfit I wore to SF earlier this summer - simple polka dot dress. I threw on a stipe shirt to keep me warm in the windy weather. Stripes surprisingly didn't clash with the polka dots but added more dynamics to the whole outfit. 

-Similar outfit-

1. H&M V-neck dress

2. Urban Outfitters poplin dress

3. Urban Outfitters front-tie cut-out romper (so cute)

4. Relisation The Alexandra - navy star (always wanted this one)

 

While I was in Beijing, I wore this outfit to hang out with my cousin at 798 art district. Wearing something like this in China definitely got a lot of staring, of course. But I grew used to it this time I visited. My cousin took these pictures for me and I gotta say that she's got skills for capturing candid moments. 

I styled a polka dot tie-front shirt with a simple over-sized white shorts. And I went all French girl style with a pair of H&M braided sling-backs. I have SO SO much love for these shoes. They are super adorable, affordable and comfortable. They also come in black. They immediately give you a vacay look and go well with all kinds of dresses and bottoms.

When structured revealing seams meet ivory lily-like silk... I've been wanting to share with you one of my newly-discovered, insanely-obsessed clothing line designed by Kate Wendelborn. When I first read about her on BOF, I was immediately drawn to this silk bodysuit - dreamy, feminist, and powerful. I've been eyeing for them on SSENSE until they went out of stock (heartbreak).

Moving on to more buyable fashion, this month i'm digging statement pieces like these Alexander Wang Amelia sandals. These mule sandals, either heels or flats, are becoming so trendy this spring and summer. They are super comfortable to walk in and honestly go well with ANY outfit. If you are getting your first pair of mules, I suggest you to start out with something basic like these I wore before. You can get so creative with these and I handpicked some of the ones that I like for you:

1. Urban Outfitters Faux Suede Lattice Mule 

2. ZARA Knotted Leather Mule

3. TOPSHOP Bow Slip-on Shoes

4. Jeffery Campbell Pragma Mule

5. ZARA Satin High Heels Mules

6. Alexander Wang Lou Suede Sandal (Cheaper alternatives here)

7. TOPSHOP NANCY Fringe Mules

 

Mango has been killing it this season with their collection. If you can't afford the Chloe small bracelet bag, this Mango cute little white purse would be your chance. I can never say enough about Mango's jewelry collection and I'll keep talking about them. This pair in the picture was my recent purchase along with another purse (I'll blog about later).  Here are some of my favorites available on Mango
