i am wearing: silk polka dot blouse c/o CAbi, h&m sweater, seven jeans, guess platform loafers, f21 bangle bracelets, nordstrom necklace and michael kors watch.

i’m not sure why i had my hand in my pocket in almost every pic i took in this outfit. so of course now i have alanis morrisette’s “hand in my pocket” song stuck in my head. i picked this polka dot-ish blouse up at the CAbi event and i loooove it. i really don’t have enough prints in my closet. although i did just buy this blazer and now i am thinking they might just be fab together! i still can’t believe i actually bought a blazer.Β  i wore them to work for the last ten years and swore i would never wear them again…lol. how do you feel about mixing prints? it feels so foreign to me but i love it on everyone else!!!

    I can totally understand, mixing prints is also something quite new to me. But I love your polka dot blouse! I also want to buy more printed things, and the blazer you bought at forever 21 seems quite cool!

    This is so funny because I just bought a different striped blazer from F21 and was trying it on yesterday with a polka dot top! It didn’t work in the end because the colors were off, but I think yours will look SO cute!! πŸ™‚

    I just tried on a very similar sweater and left it at the store because I couldn’t figure out what I would wear underneath besides a tank… duh! This is so cute! May have to go back and see if it’s still on the clearance rack…

    You’re going to love the polka dots! They’re so happy, don’t you think?!?

    I pair my shirt with this great hunter green/lemon narrow vertical stripe fitted jacket and jeans. A bit looouuud, but–I love it. The classic lines tone down the whacko print combo.
