Polka dot mullet {outfit}

Lipstick: Revlon Orange Flip | Earrings: Bauble Bar | Sunglasses: HM |  Dress: Unknown (little boutique - no brand) | Belt: Mom's from the 80s | Shoes: Nine West (old)

I first saw this dress in the window of small little boutique in the North End several weeks ago, and while I loved everything about it -- from the massive white polka dots to the mullet cut to the overall vintage feel -- I kept on walking (willpower, baby). But I couldn't stop thinking about it and when Najeema Tweeted about an amazing sheer neon pink mullet dress at TopShop, I couldn't resist any longer. I needed this dress. And I needed it NOW. 

And I am so happy that I gave in (willpower, shmil-power). Not only does this dress feed my polka dot obsession, it's super breezy and floats up behind me when I walk down stairs. Like a cape. But better. Plus the back sheer panel? Did not see that one coming! It's the perfect dress to wear in this heat wave and I'll probably be wearing it nonstop all summer.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Thank you, Alex, for the photos and for splashing around in this random fountain with me!
