Cotton On Navy Polka Dot Dress, Balenciaga Tempete Day, Glitter Flats

Here's what I wore to work today:
Sunnies: Pink leopard print sunglasses from Paddy's Markets in Sydney
NecklaceLovisa turquoise and silver long disc necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
Dress: Cotton On Abbie dress in scratch spot 
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
BagBalenciaga Giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Close up of accessories and bag:

This dress is really nice and light, but the skirt flares out a little which made me really conscious all day that it might look too short. The slight breeze didn't help calm my fears either! Maybe not the best to wear in the office, but perfect for the weekend. Not really a fan of the grey tights with this, but will be a great summer dress. :)

The sunnies were last worn here, shoes here, and bag here. This is the first time I've worn the dress as it is a new purchase.

  1. I'm a fan of any navy and white combination. It'll be fun to see what you're wearing in the coming months as we're going into winter, you're going into summer.

  2. The dress is so pretty and I don't think it's too short! I always love your accessories too!

  3. Super cute! I had my legs out today and felt so bare.... too used to being covered up!

  4. Cute polka dots dress!

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  5. This dress is so darling! I'm getting a very vintage, old school vibe from it. :) Love how you blinged it up with your sparkly silver flats and your jewelries, and of course, that Balenciaga is to die for!

    With love from San Francisco, California,

  6. It's a very cute dress! I worry about length too and the way it flares it's easily flies up. So i understand your concern. Dark tights always help! HaHaHa

  7. Super cute dress! I love the pattern :)

  8. Congrats on the new purchase. I thinks it is the perfect length but I am pretty daring when it gets to length and cleavage :)

    I love the pop of red on the sunglasses - it is a great accessory to this girly dress.

  9. That's such a cute dress! First, it's polka dot and I do love the flare. And the two blues (of the necklace and dress) are so pretty together! :)

  10. Great dress, and the bag and shoes go perfectly together! It's definitely not too short for work (compared to what can be seen around offices in summer!)! :)

  11. This whole outfit is so stealable! Want!!

  12. I love your new dress.
    Imagine pairing it with red or yellow !
    Or layering it with a white button down underneath - this dress has so much potential !
    What a great purchase.

  13. Thanks so much for all of your lovely comments :)
