Polka Dots and Roses

Mom's polka dot skirt worn as dress // Romwe tattered rose sweater // Kimchi Blue cap toe wedges (UO)

I was super excited to get this sweater on a special sale a while ago since it looks so similar to the Wildfox rose sweater! My mom says that it looks hobo-esque, but I rather like the destroyed details of the sweater. :) Plus, I love how it's slightly sheer so you can still see the polka dots underneath. I often "borrow" my mom's clothes, but unfortunately a lot of them don't fit quite right so I end up wearing them in other ways, like this skirt as a dress. Too bad I can't really figure out what to do with the jackets that are too big. And I think this bow used to be a belt or sash for the skirt, but I like wearing it as a bow. Recently I've been having a slight, read major, obsession with bows. From actual bows to bow prints, they're so cute! I really want a bow print dress or something now!

  1. I love love love that rose sweater, Elly!

  2. gorgeous! the shoes are wonderful too :D

  3. That's awesome that you utilize your mom's clothing like you do! I would have never guessed that top wasn't meant to be a dress. You wear it so well!

    Also, oh man oh man those SHOES! They're just the perfect shape and color. Kind of reminds me of a modern day pink Cinderella, haha!

  4. this is super cute! i'm obsessed with those wedges that you're rocking.

  6. woh i don't realize it's a skirt until you mention it ahhaa lovely top and a veryy cute bowtie ahha <33

  7. I love borrowing (more like stealing, let's be hoenst) my mom's clothes! It's all such classic stuff that can be re-worn a million ways! Sometimes you have to get creative with the sizing, but that's half the fun! Very creative! I love the distressed look of the sweater with the sweet prints, and how you tied the sash like that! Umm, I'm always bow obsessed. Not a crime. Hope you're having a great week!
