Party Dots

You might recall that last month I posted a similar dress from the Uniqlo collaboration with Marimekko on my blog. It just occurred to me that I completely forgot to post this large polka dot dress from the same collection! Well, better late than never. Also, the good news is that this dress and the entire Uniqlo x Marimekko Collection are now on sale! As I shared in my post about this collaboration last month, this simple shift dress is always a staple in the Collection whenever Uniqlo does a collaboration with Marimekko. I have the dress in a variety of colors and prints because it's such a chic, yet easy to wear dress. While I probably have too many of these dresses, I fell in love with this fun dot pattern in a cheerful pink and orange print and had to add it to my wardrobe!

I actually wore this dress for my husband's birthday celebration with family and I thought it would make a great party dress for the occasion. I always like to find pieces in my wardrobe that can easily transition to different situations and I think this dress is a great example of one such piece. By just adding a belt and a cardigan, it could easily be something that I would wear to work. I would also swap out these shoes, which are pretty high, with flats. To be honest, that's what I did after these pictures were taken because I did the cooking for the party and, while I would like to think I could cook dinner in 4 inch heels, I'm not really coordinated enough to pull off such a feat!

  2. I think we all wish we could cook in 4 inch heels! Haha! But they are a perfect match for that gorgeous shift dress! Love the bright colors!

  3. I love the bright orange and pink together - and that you had shoes in the same colour scheme! They introduce a fun bit of print mixing as well!

  4. So fun, Katie! I love these colors together and the big bold polka dots. Your striped shoes are the perfect little pattern mix. I love this style of dress, too!


  5. This outfit is unreal!! And honestly can't blame you for ditching the shoes for practicality purposes. I'd do the same thing!
