I was desperately craving a strawberry milkshake. I blame someone on TV for the mere offhanded mention of one (oh, and this).  So we headed to The Counter on Sunset to satiate the obsession craving.

 

the counter; best milkshake in la

 

The chicken burger with avocado, Gruyere and fried egg —  and the french fries — were merely to keep the milkshake from feeling lonely. I’m a giver, I know.

Since I knew we were headed to a burger joint, polka dots just felt right. Sunday, Monday, happy days… Oh right, where was I? Yes, when I first picked up this punchy peach polka dot skirt from Zara last week (on sale for just $10!), I assumed I’d just toss it on with a white tank once summer rolled around.

But a last-minute epiphany that I should pair it with even more polka dots and sparkle and houndstooth and chevron led to this 1950’s sock-hop meets French girl meets cowgirl look.

Am I on a complete sugar high or does this actually kind of work? No, you’re on a sugar high, that’s why these pictures look blurry to you. Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this screams strawberry milkshake. And dresses to complement my food.

p.s. I can resist a skirt (or dress) with pockets just as much as I can resist a milkshake. How about you?
