In Lieu of Polka Dots
So here's the thing. I was going through my closet looking at the various polka-dotted things I own so that I can join in the fun over at Everybody, Everywhere (including this sweater, this top and this scarf), when I came upon this dress. There are some dots amongst the stripes, but they're not really polka dotty. I decided to wear this dress today anyway. It's been hiding in the back of my closet since last year. I bought it and really liked the print, but felt like it was way too short for me. It still feels a little shorter than things I normally wear, but it's okay with tights, and since I've been doing a lot of cardio over the past 9 months or so, I don't completely hate my legs in shorter skirts and dresses.
Also, I don't know if you can tell, but there's some orange in this dress! (So you were right, Gracey, there is an Orange for Everybody!) The coloring is a lot warmer than what I normally wear, which is a nice change.
