Polka dots are one of those things that never go out of fashion. I have a knitted cropped top from Zara that’s been worn to death because it’s one of my favourites to wear with high-waisted bottoms. The good thing about a black and white print is that you can pair it with the loudest colour in you closet, if you want. I chose my bright orange pleated shorts.
Mini bags are a big trend for 2019, and my tiny leather barrel grants me that trendy card. Isn’t it cute? I love a quirky accessory. It’s from yet again, another Portuguese brand, Ceancarel. The cylinder shape held up well through all the wear.
I paired the outfit with some black and “white” (more of a beige) booties and my trusted black overcoat. Love that word, booties. It’s the plural of more than small boots, hehe. I’m a child.
I also love everything about that overcoat, from the ruffled neckline to the cinched waist to the flared skirt. And I’ve loved it for a long time – it’s probably 8, 9 years old? It’s old enough to know how to read, that’s for sure. I have to find a replacement before it enters the preteen years and starts to transform from a preppy, goody two shoes girly piece to a rebellious, ripped, shabby rag.
