Polka Dots Get Grand

There’s something about a huge polka dot print that says fun summer dressing, isn’t there?  It’s a print, albeit a sort of simple one.  But with the added oomph of being outsized, it just seems festive and joyful.  Perfect for all the summer parties and long warm nights.

Speaking of which, I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!!  I just happened to catch the end of a fireworks display where we’re staying in Sonoma, and it was such a lovely surprise.  It’s hard not to feel a jolt of emotion when you see fireworks light up the sky.  They’re like proof of unexpectedly huge possibilities, and you never quite get used to their grandeur.

In case a huge polka dot isn’t grand enough for you (wink).  Have a lovely weekend!

  • I absolutely love what you said, “They’re like proof of unexpectedly huge possibilities”. I’d never thought of them like that but that is so lovely and I might have to use it next year 🙂

    • Thanks, Callie! I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July!

  • Ali, I love that dress on you. The bold polka dots are so good and I agree that they definitely do add an element of fun for sure. You look beautiful and hope you had a lovely time with the fam.
