I’m not usually too adventurous when it comes to mixing patterns, as I think there can be a fine line between looking amazing and looking a bit like a crazy lady when you’re not a fashion maven. However I brought home these cute polka dot shorts last week, and there was instant magnetism with my trusty blue gingham shirt. They make a pretty cute couple, no?

  3. Hello! I saw you on Elembee today and wanted to pop over and check out your blog and immediately saw THESE SHORTS. Which I’ve had in my Old Navy online shopping bag for weeks and haven’t purchased yet. But obviously will now that I’ve seen how cut they are in “person”.
