Live Olive: June Jumper

Let’s polka!

You know me, my dears – I am, have always been and will always be, just a straight-up smack dab sucker for a polka dot – no matter what the occasion.

This sweet June romper is the absolute perfect one piece for those hot days ahead, a black and white frilly little number topped off with an utterly innocent pure white bow. But while it might be schoolgirl on top, this romper has a flashy short shorts style below that shows off my long lean legs…and very nicely too, thank you very much.

Add a classic patent leather pump and you’ve got my flirtiest ensemble to date – a fun, playful, barely there, body accentuating look, that suits the summer me just right.
