Polka dots and stripes paired together is one of my favorite combinations. It is so classic and timeless. Here I have shown it with the same color combination in the polka dot blouse and striped shorts; I have then added a neutral denim purse and a pop of color and texture in the sandals to tie the outfit together.
I have fallen in love with this polka dot blouse. A secret? I wore this blouse 3 days in one week! Yes, on occasion this does happen. I am a mom of five, work full time and try to exercise several mornings a week. So if I don’t plan ahead, I end up picking something out in the dark and I know this blouse looks amazing with everything and fits me even when I am bloated. Yes, you heard me correctly. You always need a few of those go-to pieces that look great and make you feel amazing even when you aren’t feeling at your best.
I started out with something specific in mind for this photo shoot, but then I got the idea to take my grandma flowers. It was such a gorgeous day I couldn’t resist! So we improvised and the hunt for beautiful flowers for grandma became the photo shoot. Some days are like that, where you are inspired to do something while you are in the middle of doing something else. I love my grandma and flowers make her feel so special and that is what she is to me, special. So on this beautiful day, flowers it is! Enjoy your day and make it beautiful for someone you love! You won’t regret it; I promise!!!
