i’m wearing: old navy striped dress, old navy polka dot sweater, kensie vest, kate spade arm candy clutch and zara red strap heels.

for some reason whenever i wear anything kate spade, i almost feel like i HAVE to wear polka dots. but then after i put this on, i immediately changed. i love the striped dress and polka dot sweater separately, but for some reason this was just to flashy/costume-y for me…lol. anywho….who watched the golden globes last night??? kate hudson got my “best dressed” vote and sienna miller got my “worst dressed” vote. but mostly i was just jealous of how AMAZING all of the new moms looked. i mean, megan fox had her son ONE month ago. and claire danes three months ago. that is just not fair.

p.s. i am also linking up with @momtrends today.

    Stop it. This is too cute. I can’t believe you changed – I love the mix of spots & stripes!

    Umm, totally agree with you on Megan Fox…I mean, come on. That is not even right πŸ™

    Wait a minute – Megan Fox had a baby a MONTH ago???? I didn’t even know she was pregnant. That is NOT. RIGHT. Of course, she IS only 26, so she’s got that going for her. STILL. I cannot even believe it. I did my own rundown on my blog today of my faves/not so faves. Favorite by a mile – Lucy Liu. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Least fave – Halle Berry or Lena Dunham. Unfortunate, in completely different ways.

    Love the polka dots and stripes!
    I’m going to have to google your fave and least fave from last night. Somehow I missed both of them. I thought Claire Danes looked gorgeous, but she always looks flawless at awards shows. I didn’t realize she only had her son 3 months ago, though. I thought Julie Bowen looked great. So did Anne Hathaway.
    I was not a fan of Lena Dunham’s look last night. Perhaps if she hadn’t looked so awkward trying to walk in her dress/shoes.

    This is DARLING! I think I need that dress πŸ™‚ Looks so versatile! I can see what you mean about the “costumy” look though. Bold stripes + bold dots might just equal too much boldness for one day, eh? πŸ˜‰
