Polka Dots x Espadrilles Sneakers

Polka Dots x Espadrilles Sneakers

Polka dots in black and white are a favorite of mine. This playful print couldn’t be more fun this Summer, wouldn’t you agree?! As for today’s look—I decided to pair this darling polka dots dress with espadrilles sneakers, the hottest shoe trend this season!

Espadrilles are one of the most classic Summer styles. … Probably the coolest trend of the season, and the sneaker version is no exception! I loved wearing this look while visiting friends for a play date. As parents, my husband and I truly enjoy these “dates” where our oldest son Kingston gets to goof off and have fun with his buddies while mommy and daddy get a little break and have a nice adult conversation with other parents. I never really knew how much I would enjoy these little breaks…This summer it’s all me and my little boys. They both can be a handful (I’m not gonna lie!) so, any break is a heaven sent.

But let’s get back to fashion: Back in the 50s and 60s polka dots where a must, and I couldn’t be more excited for its return this season! To me it’s such a happy print—it’s playful and yet innocent. A print I will continue wearing for as long as I can. How about you?! What your thoughts on this print? Let me know by commenting below!

As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a great Wednesday!

    What a cute dress, Vanessa! I love the retro vibe of it wth the polka dots and those espadrille sneakers are so cute and perfect for summer! I can imagine how nice it must be to not only see Kingston have fun with other kids his age, but to also connect with other parents with your hubby, something I look forward to 🙂 Thanks for sharing, my friend, and I hope you’re having the best week so far!
