Bananasauce it's been a dramatic week to say the least, and it's only Wednesday!! So I figure, we could all use a break from the shenanigans going on. And what says 'delightful distraction' more than polkadots!? My thoughts exactly.

I love this outfit for a date night: it's sweet and flirty, fitted and flared where necessary. I love that the modest neckline suggests 'good girl,' but the hemline still gives it some sass, because let's be real - good girls do have all the fun ;)

However, I have a confession: when I bought the dress it was a bit longer, and I had the tailor adjust the hemline. As much as I wish I did, I don't have long legs, so in-between lengths do me NO favors. I usually need to adjust hemlines so my legs don't look as short as they actually are, lol! Listen, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do ;)

I also felt the dress slightly monotonous on its own, so I knew I needed a belt to balance it out. I popped over to Forever 21 and quickly found this patent bow belt that went perfectly with the dress, for an easy topper. To continue accessorizing, I added the sheer tights for a light evening look. My quickly becoming signature flower hairpiece was also added to add balance to my upper half - as well as to heighten the playfulness of my look.

It's all finished off with my platform, double-strap, velvet Mary-Jane pumps. IlovethemIlovethemIlovethem. I purchased these from lulus.com about a year ago, and while they're more seasonal: fall/winter, I absolutely adore them. I think it's a wonderful duality to have the sexiness of a pump combined with the demureness of a Mary-Jane strap (and double to boot!). The shoes are actually comfortable, and I love that lulus.com always has affordable shoes that are implicitly stylish :)
