If you saw my post from last week about dressing down lace you’re probably noticing a theme here. I’ve been inspired by a lot of my more formal pieces lately and have been looking for ways to make them appropriate for more casual settings.

I love taking fancy pieces and dressing them down. It allows you to get more use out of everything you own and results in combinations that would otherwise be inappropriate for more formal setting.

One of our favorite patterns for this transitional season? Polka dots. They can add a subtle three dimensional component to an otherwise colorful palette and can play a subtly nautical role in any outfit.

To see where Travis got his mini polka dots, read more.

I stumbled across Michelle Morin’s artwork a couple years ago before I even knew her name.

I saw this image on Pinterest, but it was hosted on Tumblr with no source link. I kept coming back to it as I added more decor and furnishings to my new apartment, so I finally decided to do a reverse image search to figure out who the heck made it.
