Polka Dotty


Everybody Everywhere is celebrating my favorite print today!  Polka Dots make me smile.  I had never styled this dress for cold weather and being the matchy-matcher that I am (but strive not to be), I was a little stumped.  I decided black might be a good contrast against the ivory and tan.  I brought in the purple cardigan to go with the cute, purple buttons.  The original intent was to belt it, but I couldn't decide on that either.  Instead, tied it in a knot and called it a day.

Cardigan:  Old Navy
Dress:  Forever 21
Tights:  WalMart
Shoes:  Enzo Angiolini, thrifted
Bag:  thrifted via ARC's Value Village

Polka Dots </P>

I like the knot instead of the belt. Not that I don't like belts, but the knot goes perfectly in this situation. And I'm also a huge fan of that dress. It's so pretty, and the purple cardi complements it well!

Love those dots! Great pairing with the sweater.

Emily said...

Very cute, and this seems like a look that could easily translate to warmer weather. You look almost springy already, other than the fact that you're surrounded by snow!

You look so sweet - I am totally impressed with the winter styling - but I think it is perfectly topped off with your smile. Perhaps that is the sports working their magic?
