Layers upon Layers


Layers & MORE Layers…Fond of this layered look! Sometimes layers can be slimming instead of adding bulk. Fit is key to this equation.

Happy Birthday, Polka Dots & Pleats!

IMG_1431 (1)Celebrating 3 years of blogging on Polka Dots & Pleats!
This is the longest resolution I’ve ever kept. I’m so grateful that you all have been a part of this journey.
It’s been so fun to learn and share my hobby in the process. Thanks forcontinuing to follow through pregnancy, baby, career change, loss of loved ones, etc.
Your support, suggestions and friendship have inspired me to keep going while adding a little color and a touch of style to life.

Ticket to SUNSHINE

LillyTICKET to SUNSHINE on this frigid evening! So would you like the good or the bad fashion news first?
Let’s start on a positive note: Lilly Pulitzer is collaborating with Target Style! These two are absolutely made for each other. Mark your calendar for April 19th. I’ll be camping out in the parking lot.
Now for the bad: C.Wonder is CLOSING. Tory Burch wins again! I’m really bummed about this news. Everything left on their site was 50% off but nothing newsworthy available.
