Fashion Friday- Ruffles & Polka Dots

Thanks for stopping by Running in a Skirt! You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram. or subscribe by entering your e-mail address to the right!

Happy Friday dear readers.  I really hope you had a fantastic week.

I had a busy and productive week that started off at the Food Blog Forum in Asheville Monday and Tuesday.  Wednesday was my birthday and today I am getting ready for another round of company to actually celebrate my birthday.   And oh yeah, a lot of blogging on Running in a Skirt in between.  Did you try my  Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad from the other day?  Seriously, give it a whirl, you will love it.

Speaking of love,  I have a LOVE AFFAIR with polka dots.


It is such a classic, yet youthful look that anyone can pull off.  I already own a half dozen dresses with polka dots in my closet and whenever I see one in the store I am drawn to add it to my collection.


This shirt has subtle ruffles and is a quick fix for a work outfit to a night on the town.


I pair it with a statement purse with a pop of color.  The jewelry is light and layered silver pieces that don’t detract from the shirt.


The shoes are flat and fabulous.  A look that is perfect for skinny black pants and one that will easily transition into early Fall.


Pants: White House Black Market

Shirt: White House Black Market Outlet

Shoes: Jessica Simpson

Purse: Kate Spade

And even though I’m not officially a fashion forecaster, I’d place money on this look staying in style for years to come.

Special thanks to my Sister-in-law Megan who took the pictures when she was in Asheville last week.

Your turn!

Do you own any polka dot dresses or shirts?

How was your week?

    I have no polka dots but this post inspired me! I will be on the hunt now…I am in love with any and all flats paired with skinny jeans so this is by far my fav fashion post!

    I have only one shirt with polka dots, but I love them! I have been planning to look for more.

    You have inspired me…I love polka dots and, at present, don’t have anything in my wardrobe with them. They look so fresh and cheery. When I was younger, I always wore polka dots…I will again. Everyone deserves polka dots in their life!

    I still wear a black blouse of my late mother’s, accented with plenty of white polka dots!

    Looking great, Julie!

      I agree! They have just the right amount of whimsy.

    I love polka dots! This is such a classic look. It easily could have been worn in the 1950’s too. Very Audrey Hepburn-ish.
