Subdued Polka dots and strips + awards nominations

Although  February  month is still winter here,  in true Mediterranian style, the sun has returned ,meaning no more heavy or thick clothing!

I think that white, blue and camel are a winning combination. The coral was added, with the bag and neckless , for that  touch of  contrasting color.

I have to confess here my blog readers: Although it may be in fashion to mix and match polka dots and stripes, I only find it flattering when the dots and stripes are of  the same color

I find it whimsical and fun when polka dots and stripes are matched gently, in a subdued way. Who wants to look like a clown, right?

What do you think about this trend of mixing polka dots and stripes?

  7. Thanks for the like! Your blog is fabulous. There’s something so chic and classic about camel…I definitely need to start investing in some pieces.

    • I agree about the color camel. I began appreciating it only lately…but now I believe that a pair of camel shoes and a jacket are a must… Thanks for your comment Daniella.

  8. I’m digging the subtle polka-dot/stripe combo….I have a pair of black and very thin pin-stripped pants…maybe I can pair them with a red and white small polka-dot blouse. I’ll take a picture and let you know if people here in Texas like it or not….not that I would care!

  9. I love how the necklace color matches the purse but the shoes match the jacket. It’s a great way to tie everything together! (

    Another pretty outfit. Very elegant, very classy, chic.
    You also have very classic features. Lovely woman you are (both face and figure). And style to finish things off.
    I presume you are Greek?

    Oh and I like mixing stripes with polka dots. But it takes a lot of style and creativity to do it right. And I don’t really possess that, so I usually stay on the safe side and leave it alone.
