I have always been a polka dot lover. When one of my best friend’s, Helene, got married in Normandy last weekend, and the rehearsal dinner and wedding were at a French countryside estate with a theme of “garden festive”, I had the perfect excuse to wear my favorite new dress! I love that this dress is sleeveless with an elegant high-neckline and sash. I specifically knotted the sash instead of tying it in a bow, because I liked that this was a little more sophisticated. I also was drawn to this dress because of the size of the polka dots. I love that they are bigger and not small dots. I knew that the rehearsal dinner would be outside, so I packed my trusty block heel sandals, easy and practical for walking on gravel and in the yard. This black and white dress called for minimal jewelry, but a dash of color, so I wore a red lip. Is there anything more summery than polka dots on a warm summer night?
This dress can also be worn to the office with a black blazer (to take a page out of Kate Middleton’s past fashion looks!)
This was the start of a fairytale wedding weekend! More to come.
