Passion For Fashion #51 : Green Polka Dot Dress :

PolkaDot IMG_1819-BLOG IMG_1824-BLOG

Dress: DownEast Basics via Zulily // Sunnies: Forever 21 // Shoes: Steve Madden

I got dressed very quickly on Monday morning... I grabbed my new DownEast Basics dress and was ready in a jiffy!  The kids didn't understand why I was wearing a green dress when it wasn't St. Patrick's Day.  According to Ruby, I looked like a lady leprechaun... She was adamant that I not wear this particular dress on any other day than March 17th.  Too bad kid, Momma was in a hurry!  She did like my shoes, though.  So there's that.

sidenote: the weather had been so nice, I managed to get 2 other outfit posts done this week! You can find them here & here.

    I think you look cute and very un-leprechaun haha!

  2. I don't think you look like a leprechaun at all. The dress is gorgeous, love the pleats!

  3. Hmmm no Leprechaun here, not at all. That green dotted shirt-dress is amazeballs. I love the pleats. It looks a little vintage too.

    I am rocking my Leather & Lace in my latest post and I also co-hosted a link up. I would love for you to link up this fabulous outfit. So check it out and thanks so much.

  7. This is a look I love in you, Lena! Great styling ideas and confidence in your look. wow-derful lol

  8. Love your dress. Kids are funny. Luckily I have two boys so I'm not so sure they'll care too much what I wear. Lol. I'm so excited for the weather to get nicer, I find it so hard to take outfit pictures in the winter. Either no light after work, or always wearing the same coat (unless I take pictures inside which is even worse for lighting...). So, yay for nice weather!!

  9. I linked up! But I don't see my link yet. Hopefully soon. :)
    I love this dress, so don't listen to your girls on this one. Haha and I so wish I could pull off this hair!
