Christmas in July: Stripes and Polka dots

July 5, 2012

Red polka dots skirt
Red skirt and green blouse
Red and black polka dots

Skirt:ASOS (on sale here!, Top:J-Crew (similar here)
Shoes:Zara (similar black pump here), Necklace:Ann Taylor
Bag:Celine, Sunglasses:Prada

The weather here has been so crazy hot, it’s at this time that I long for winter. At least in winter you can make yourself warm by wearing warm stuff. In summer what can you do other than endure and stay indoors? This is one look inspired by my favorite winter holiday,Christmas; red and black polka dots and green stripes! I can smell it already. Time flies so fast so let’s all make the best of it.

Thank God it’s friday!
