gorgeous..
I don't like polka dots but they look great on you

blue roses said...

the polka dots and the stripes are such classics, american, apple pie and rodeos and long, lazy afternoons sipping lemonade listening to baseball drone on the radio. the flow of the skirt adds a femininity to the childish garishness of the patterns.
