What I Wore: Polka Dot

Oh my...it is August!
When did that happen? I swear that this year is flying by. I have good and bad feelings about that! This month is going to be a GREAT one for me. My sister is due on Friday. Which means I get to meet my niece SOON. Having another little one to love just fills my heart. I cannot get enough of my nephew so I know that I will love my niece just as much. We are having a mini family reunion this weekend and we will be beach camping. I am so excited to spend time with all my loved ones. In three weeks I head to Mexico to attend a wedding of a friend. I also have a couple dates planned. So don't mind me as I gush about how much I love my life on the blog ;)

As for my outfit...we have been seeing polka dots everywhere! I don't know if you know this but I am not a huge J. Crew fan. So when I received the catalog and saw a polka dot sweater on the cover I was kind of bummed. I had already ordered this outfit from Old Navy and had a vision. I feel like now I look like a copy cat. Haha. A lot of bloggers have been wearing polka dots this week as well. I guess I am just late to the trend. I loved that the sweater had larger polka dots and knew that this sweater will be perfect into Fall and Winter. I love the camel color. Pairing it with shorts that have smaller polka dots was a fun way for me to "mix prints" and push myself style wise. I wanted to wear my Zara shoes that match perfectly. The neutral palette was a nice change from my brights. I wore all black and gold jewelry to complement but not compete with the outfit. I love how the look came together.

  5. I love how you paired this all together. something I probably would have never tried.
    I'm not IN LOVE w/ J.Crew either. they have cute stuff from time to time but I don't think it really fits my lifestyle

  13. You rock that sweater! I tried it on in the store, but opted for another J.Crew Tippi which was on an awesome sale. Maybe if ON has a good deal on the polka dots I can justify that one as well! :)

  14. Didn't August just come and go like a breeze-I'm not sure if I like the way time is flying by so fast. I've been eyeing this Old Navy sweater myself but I have a similar cardigan so I think I'm gonna pass-you're rocking it well though!
