I love a good polka dot. Luckily, Christopher does, too. In fact, I haven't yet met a polka dot I don't like. They are great on blouses, skirts, tights, and dresses. Especially dresses accompanied by a flourish of girly ruffles. They almost (almost) rival my love of the stripe.

Your pictures always make me smile and feel good! :) You are so beautiful, you look like an angel! Not that I have seen one, but you get the point! :P

That's such a gorgeous outfit! The polka dot dress rules and you styled it in the most awesome way! I love how it looks belted with the cardigan, it's so so pretty and feminine! Great tights too, I like that you didn't go with the easy way wearing black tights. Now you really spice up the whole outfit, because you're amazing! :D :D

I saw that dress (and similar blouse at H&M) and didn't buy it. Whenever I see it on you I wish I had!

I love everything polka dots, even more than stripes actually. It's just such a happy print! :D

I love your dress- I also wish I'd bought it when I saw it in H&M! Polka dots are definitely the way to go :)

tights + long socks + ruffles = super pretty! :)

Cute cute cute! I love dresses with cardigans, especially when they're belted. If I didn't live in the blazing summer heat capital of the world (maybe an exaggeration, but not by much), I'd wear them all year. You look great!

Ok. This is so cute I can barely stand it.

Elle Enchanted said...

Tanya, you look beautiful as always- and you make it look so easy too! I love the contrast of the dress with the maroon tights and the perfectly belted cardigan. Love it. Seriously. And those ruffles make that dress. EVEN. BETTER. And I love polka dots too, but don't own that many things... YET. ;)

This dress is fantastic! I love the pairing with the cranberry tights as well, though I can also see it working well with sandals in the summer (when we finally get there!).

I too love dots and stripes, and pretty much all prints that are two toned :) You look great!
Oh! And I also felt overwhelmed when I got my whole closet back after the remix... it was exhausting to try to come up with more outfits!
Congrats on 2 years with Christopher too!

The stripe is the dot's studious older sister.

This may very well be in my top 5 Tania outfits of all time. Of all time! Everything about it -- ruffles, polka dots, colored tights, heather grey -- is just romantic and awesome.

I'm loving polka dot dress on you. I wanted to wear polka dots last week and discovered that I don't own one item with polka dots...weird.

Love your dots! I'm realizing I own far more of them than my grungy, 13-yr old self would have ever believed. Adorable!

I am absolutely in love with polka dots too! I can't get enough of them. If I see something in polka dot I have to fight really hard not to get it...sometimes I lose ;)
