Style Diary – Polka Dots Are The New Stripes

Hello to all you beautiful people,

I hope you all had an amazing bank holiday weekend and aren’t feeling too frazzled and rattled because of it today! I always feel like on the Tuesday after a long weekend, everyone is kind of on a “go-slow” pace. As I mentioned in my last post, I decided to take race week easy and not participate in the usual Galway madness and all the antics that go along with it.

As a reward to myself and also as a way of keeping myself occupied so the “FOMO” didn’t set in, I did the one thing that always makes me feel better – online shopping!


The first thing that was added to my cart was this polka dot ruffle blouse.

Polka dots are one of those prints that never go out of fashion but at the moment they are seriously in. Dare I say they’re the new stripes of the season? A big statement to make, I know.. but I just love them?! I love this top, it has everything; a flattering v shape neckline, pretty layered sleeves and its an ideal length for wearing with either trousers or a leather mini making it the perfect day to night top too!

I imagined this top with a delicate bralette inside it but seeing as me and bralette’s do not get along (it’s not you, it’s me), I opted for wearing this long suede rope necklace inside my top instead. Its a simple way of adding some detail to the neckline of your top if, like me, you can’t wear those bralettes that are realistically only made for A-C cups.

Did I mention this top only costs €24 at full price?? Yeap!!

Think I might have to get the black with white polka dots too? Someone restrain me!!

Gotta Dash,

Edel x
