A Day in the Life: She Wore a Purple Polka Dot Dress that She Wore for the First Time Today

2 Comments

I recently got this dress for $3.50 at Goodwill. I absolutely love it, so I decided to surround an entire outfit for it as I went for a walk on a bike trail by the place I’m staying this summer! I love the colors and the drop waist. I think it’s really feminine, but also unique.

This walk was full of random adventures and great finds. I played around with ways to take pictures of myself, so I can do more outfit of the days. This actually ended up being a little awkward when a biker saw me, laughed, and screamed “taking selfies, eh?”, but the walk was fun nonetheless.

I found a lot of cool street art along the way –

I asked a flower whether he loves me or he loves me not –

He loves me! I wonder who he is...

I even saw a rainbow!

For my outfit, I wanted to contrast the girly-ness of the dress with some grey oxfords. I wore my fun bead and bird necklace to play off the lavender color of the dress.

Since I was going adventuring, I needed a headband, but didn’t have one. I toke a necklace, turned it upside down so that the glossy part was on my hair, and clasped it shut. This works well with a necklace where the length is very adjustable.

  1. I love your dress! It’s so fun and flirty : ) and that cobalt blue with the light pink is so unique.
    PS – I feel you on the ‘selfies’… had a similar experience!
