Polka Dots, the new stripes?

When I was growing up, lets say middle school, I LOVED polka dots, I thought they were the cutest thing! However, polka dots were not the most flattering on a girl turning into a lady and just starting to get curves but doesn’t know how to dress them. So needless to say polka dots faded out of my wardrobe slowly but surely as I became more aware of this lack of flattery.

However, a decade later and a little more grown up, polka dots have made it back on the scene. I have reinstated my obsession and slowly but surely acquiring more polka dot pieces. My favorite piece that I have added to my collection is this wonderful button up from Loft. It is just standard black and white but it goes with pretty much everything.

Although I thought I may be alone at first in my re-aquired love for polka dots, I have gotten more compliments on this shirt that many more in my collection. ย So thank goodness for this renewed love of the polka dot, and thank goodness that years later I supposedly can pull it off.

So next time! Mix it up, and swap those stripes for the stripes for some spots!

{Fall Favorites!}

I always love the change of the season, especially the change from summer into fall; the changes of the leaves and the crisp fall air makes everything seem new. ย But fall not only brings a lot of apples :), but brings on the season of cute boots and comfy sweaters! A few of my fall staples are:

An accent of leopard! Just a touch, my favorite are these flats I found for cheap cheap atย Charming Charlie! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pair these with jeans… khakis… black pants… colored pants… must I go on? I think you get the picture, basically with anything! ๐Ÿ™‚ Adds a little flair, and lets face it; leopard is very ‘in’ right now. Or so I gather ๐Ÿ˜‰ On the topic of pants I have been a colored pant fanatic for the past few months, scooping up any pair I can get my hands on! Even if they are supposed to be capri’s.. they usually fit me perfectly as a cute colored cropped pant. #shortgirlprobz, or advantages? However you look at it!

I love love love love my vest, I ordered it 3 years ago, monogram and all ;), and am still completely obsessed! I got a navy one because it goes with almost everything, and I love pairing it with my all-time always obsession, no matter the season!

Stripes!

Those two paired with jeans and a cute pair of boots?! Fall perfection if you ask me! Last but not least, accessories! In addition to those leopard flats, I am always in favor of warm scarves, off tones of purple nail polish, and boots of any color! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love fall! Hmm, I’m sure there is more but at least these are some of the faves!ย Well! I think that’s it for now! TTFN xoxo ๐Ÿ™‚ GFP
