This dress was made for blazers. (See here for an example.) Well, actually it was made for kids, but you have to get creative when you go shopping. I’ve wanted to wear this outfit for a while, and now that it warmed up for a day, I had a chance.
This yellow wool blazer suits itself to being paired with gray (like here) — I don’t know why. Maybe the yellow is too striking against white? I’d say I try it, but there’s a very limited amount of time one can wear a wool blazer as an outer layer. Nonetheless, I like the whimsical touch from the polka dots with this look.
I also didn’t realize it until I looked at myself in the mirror, but this outfit reminds me of a certain pop culture icon. Between the yellow and the shorter hemline and the middle part, Cher Horowitz from Clueless popped into my head. Sure, it’s not a full-on yellow plaid suit, but it’s something like a country twist on it, amiright?
P.S. Thanks for taking my pictures, Katie!
