Weekend Style: Stripes and Polka dots

Top: Tj Maxx $9.99 (recent)(similar) * Shorts: Forever 21 (old) (similar) * Shoes: J Crew Factory $28 (recent, check local store for sale price)(similar) * Necklace: Old (similar) * Clutch: DIY here (similar)

I am glad that stripes and polka dots are still going strong late this summer and pre-fall. If anything, they are going to be more popular in the fall. Stripes can be flattering on most body types if paired with a solid bottom. Flats work as well with a shorter than usual (for me) shorts. I've yet to pair a striped top with a polka dot bottom, but I am working my way towards that. I think the clutch adds enough of polka dot-ness (is that a word?) to the outfit.
Would you wear or are you already wearing stripes and polka dots together?

Thanks for reading!
