Updating Your Polka Dots For Summer

You guys are already well aware of my French girl style obsession, and hopefully you were able to catch some of my whirlwind trip to Paris on my Instagram stories. As far as I’m concerned, French style is the ultimate uniform for this season, when the weather is warm and the days are long. There’s something about easy printed dresses, sneakers or flats, straw bags and hats – that really make you feel like you’re on vacation even if you’re at work. Last Summer you saw me rock this frilly polka dot wrap dress with cat eye sunnies – a more girly expression of my Francophile infatuation. This Summer, I’m rocking polka dots again, but in an updated way that is perfect for the city.

While in Paris, I wore this polka dot shirt dress (which would be perfect for work or a wedding by the way), but instead of styling it with girly shoes I went for trusty white sneakers and straw accents. This made the look more easygoing, and perfect for walking around sightseeing all day. It would also be a great look for casual Fridays during the Summer if you work in an office, or even for brunch or walking around the farmer’s market. While searching for more polka dot pieces to fulfill my French style fix, I realized that they don’t have to just be on dresses, or even be black and white for that matter. This season, there are so many cute polka dot items from jumpsuits, to blouses, trousers and skirts. Scroll through some of my favorite polka dot pieces for Summer, below!

    White midi shirtdress in black polka dots looks stunning! The way you style it with white kicks, straw wide-brim hat and rounded sunglasses is amazing! I also made a post on cool Summer 2018 dresses that can be styled with sneakers, check it: http://standoutlook.com/what-dresses-you-can-wear-with-sneakers-next-2018/
    Kisses and Hugs,

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
