“Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.”
– Christian Louboutin
These lime green flats may be as bright as the hair of a 90’s Troll Doll, but they are just absolutely eye catching. I immediately knew I wanted to wear these shoes today, but debated the outfit. For me, I typically go with the top/dresses first before I pick out my shoes. But today was a different story; these shoes were my foundation instead. So in this instance, I dressed from the bottom-up, rather than top-down. They were the piece that would make the outfit “pop.”
Guys! Isn’t this orange wall amazing?
Polka dots have existed ever since the 1920’s to 1960’s, and still remain popular today. They never seem to go out of style! My ultimate favorite part about this dress is the black sheer on the upper part of the dress itself. It gives the outfit a flirty feel to it and I was drawn to it!
I also styled this outfit with a faux leather jacket to give a bit of an edgy look. As much as I love feminine soft outfits, this inner NYC girl loves outfits with a cool edge. This is honestly the most affordable and most versatile black faux leather jacket I have found! This jacket is also an absolute MUST in every women’s wardrobe.
FUN FACT: Here’s a brief history about how the polka dot pattern emerged: In the early 1830’s to 1850’s, the U.S was struck by a dance craze with the Bohemian and Czech people of Europe, known as the “Polka”. The term polka was actually a reference to the Polish woman, and was named after the Bohemian. Because of the circles their dance moves formed, the Polka Dots were invented. The “polka” craze eventually grew so popular that polka clubs began to create fabrics containing their pattern!

Much love! xoxo
