Green Polka Dot Dress

I have been in a major clothing rut lately – wearing lots of the same sweaters over and always reaching for the comfiest things in my closet. But I’ve been itching to get dressed up again! When I was doing some online browsing and came across this green smocked polka dotted dress, I knew that it was exactly what I was looking for.

Heather, a white woman in a power wheelchair, is wearing a long sleeved v-neck dark green dress, with light, bright green polka dots all over it. She's wearing tortoise Le Specs sunglasses and brown Sarah Flint Natalie pointy toe flats. She's outside on her front porch with red brick and a window behind her, her long brown hair is down and straight, and she's smiling at the camera.

There’s something about a patterned dress that makes me feel super put together, even though it actually takes less effort than “putting together” an outfit. And this dress feels like a complete outfit in one piece! It’s got so many different things I love – a pretty green, a polka dot print, a smocked top, and sleeves.

I have always loved polka dots – it’s a simple print that adds a little bit of interest without being too busy or loud. I sometimes worry that they can look too young, but that’s not an all an issue with this dress. I love that it’s a green-on-green print – the two tones are sophisticated but fun.

And the smocking!! I love a dress with smocking, but I don’t usually see it paired with a v-neck, which makes this interesting. Only the front half around the chest is smocked, which gives it just enough stretch to make it super flattering. The v-neck is a bit of a plunge, so be warned, but it’s nothing too much – you can definitely still wear a bra with it.

And the best part of all – at just under $50, this dress is incredibly affordable.

The shoes (as usual!) are from Sarah Flint. You can use SARAHFLINT-BAHEATHERREPORT for $50 off your first pair!
