Polka Dots in Florence (and all my other favorite polka dot picks)

Florence is probably my favorite cities in Italy. I first came here for a weekend trip with friends when I was studying for the summer staying in the Veneto region, north of Venice. I fell in love with it instantly and have been back three separate occasion since! This trip was a little pre-wedding meet up for us and our friends before heading down to Positano. I had been saving this red polka dot dress specifically for Florence- knowing its a lot hotter here than it was in the French Riviera, or it would be down in Positano. Something that is cotton and flows away from the body in 85 + degree heat is a must-wear! (Plus I had a feeling this red would serve as a good pop of color against the gothic style architecture seen everywhere in Florence... yes I'm a nerd and think about that sort of thing!)

Polka dots have always been a favorite pattern of mine, and when I see something polka-dotted, I am always drawn to it! I have linked all my favorite polka-dot picks for the summer above! (I really am eyeing that Tularosa blue and white polka dot dress!.. maybe post baby!?)

Its baby week everyone!! Baby watch has officially begun!!
