get spotted! ...literally.

I'm a very strange person. Though I'm constantly ruminating over things, I seldom make obvious connections in my thoughts and desires. [This became pretty awkward in a poetry class once, but that's another story.] I've started saving photos I'm drawn to and it took me a ridiculous amount of time to realize a commonality between the majority of them:


I've never in my life picked up something with polka dots and thought, I need this. I always found them too matronly or too young. But now, there's nothing else I want or need to [slightly] cover my body in this ridiculous summer heat.

And it sends me over the moon when they're paired with stripes, like the bathing suit in Friday's post, or here:


Do you dig it?

P.S. Someone on the news right now is wearing a jacket I got at LOFT. I just think that's weird.

those polka pieces are so cute! thank your for your comments.
and yeah the hair if you wanna do it just mess it up put a few braids together and pin it.
very easy and for the maxi skirt just go to target they have lots of them, very plain ones!

I have a feeling my obsession for stripes may morph into a polka dot obsession. I adore the shot with the red skirt and bikini top. How effortless! And the glamourai really can do no wrong with me.
