When I am not wearing Pixie Pants and Jack Purcells, my approach to getting dressed is as follows: dress, flats, pearls, hat, sunglasse and voilá-- done! A few weekends ago I wore this Kate Spade polka dot dress to meet Ayesha Curry (read about our friendship here) and love it even more than the day I got it. I have had it for a few years and wore it during our 2013 Europe trip! A good investment piece can last a long time if you buy something that fits well and is true to your personal style.

When I look at my closet the items that have the most longevity are the classic pieces that are good quality. I could honestly see myself wearing this dress in five and ten years, if it still fits!

While gingham is having a major moment (see my previous post here), I love to show some love of polka dots! They are playful and so youthful and always make me think about Vivian's polka dot dress at the Polo Match in Pretty Woman-- looking at that image I am really channeling Viv, hat and all! I keep talking about PW on here and I guess that means I am going to have to watch it this weekend.

Check your closet right now, if you don't have something polka dot in there it is time to add it to your wardrobe! Here are some of my favorite polka dot dresses for summer! You can't go wrong with a little Red Valentino polka dot piece!
