Polka Dots and Polka Nots

Today I mixed polka dots with a micro-floral print that looks like polka dots, but it's not:

A print that is commonly known in the business as, polka nots:

See?  Polka nots, not polka dots.

And that's a black polka dot skirt, not navy:

I know, I know.  It's craziness:

Blouse: vintage, thrifted (similar) (similar)
Skirt: vintage, thrifted (see below) Sandals: Franco Sarto (similar)  

Craziness, polka dots and polka nots.

Happy Monday, All!

Pom Wonderful

As I mentioned before I, for some reason, have a favorite trim.  And for all the reasons, it's pom pom trim:

I like it so much, I like to wear it all at once:

All the pom poms.  All of 'em.

Because pom poms are...

Peplum: eShakti (similar) (more coverage)  Scarf: gifted (similar)
Pants: Old Navy (similar)  Flats: Nine West (similar)

That's right, pom wonderful.

Happy Friday, All!

Not Culottes

This is a skirt, not culottes:

But, it should be culottes.  I mean, for the love, it looks like culottes.  It clearly wants to be culottes:

Not that I blame it.  If I were an article of clothing, I'd want to be culottes too.  I love culottes.

And I love this skirt too:

Skirt & Top: vintage, thrifted
Earrings: gifted (similar)  Sandals: Isola via Nordstrom

I do.  Even if it's not culottes.

Happy Wednesday, All!

Chambray, Olive and Magenta

I'm wearing magenta again, but out in the open this time.

No hidden magenta here, just this fun, pleated skirt, out in the open:

I found it in Goodwill the other day and thought it would be perfect with these olive Frye sandals:

I finished the look off with a knotted chambray shirt:

Top: Nordstrom (similar on sale)  Skirt: thrifted (similar, similar, similar)
Sandals: FRYE via Amazon (exact on sale, similar save, similar splurge)

Happy Monday, All!

Striped and Layered

I haven't worn this dress much lately because it can be a little "boobs ahoy!" for my tastes.  But, it's so comfortable, I want to wear it all the time.  Today I figured out how to have my boobs and hide them too:

(This is sometimes a good thing for a gal to know how to do, depending on their work environment and general level of comfort with exposed cleavage).

I layered an open-weave sweater over the dress and belted it because the sweater is a bit boxy and I had no waist without the belt:

This worked perfectly for me given that my work environment is somewhat-conservative-business-casual and I'm also somewhat conservative on the cleavage front:

Dress: eShakti (similar knit) (similar maxi) (similar orange)
Sweater: Old Navy (similar)  Belt: Old Navy (similar)  Sandals: Camper

I still get to wear my fabulously comfy striped dress, but without having to worry that the girls were going to head out for a night on the town.

Happy Thursday, All!
