Whenever I see an item of clothing that has polka dots on it, I am tempted to immediately snatch it up, regardless of size or shape. If it happens to be navy with white polka dots, I think I go a little crazy. I don’t know why or what from my childhood may have influenced my love of these little dots, but it is my favorite pattern hands down. (Even my wallet sports a nice tan with black polka dots pattern.)
When I tried on this navy polka dot top from Modcloth last night, I knew I had to wear it the very next day. Not only was the pattern lovely, but the cut is a nice peplum shape and the fabric drapes nicely. I paired it with a wide brown leather belt, my white linen blazer from Nordstrom, some cute red sandals and voila! Perfect outfit to beat the Monday blues. Did it make my day a little more awesome? I’d like to think so.
I had a pretty good time at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. (Despite the bargain basement atmosphere.) Some of the sections were already quite picked over, but I managed to snag a few good deals.
I normally don’t go for faux fur accents, as they feel a bit over the top, but this jacket really called to me and the fur is super soft and removable. I thought it went well with this apple printed button up. I also can envision the button up with a brown corduroy skirt I have with a oatmeal sweater layered on top.
I think this boucle jacket will look great with some black skinny jeans and a cool accent necklace. I fell in love with the boots and can’t wait to pair them with a flowy skirt or dress and tights. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but they are a nice olive green and have zippers up the side.
I also picked up a great new foundation from the Georgio Armani counter. The sales lady was very helpful and ended up doing a whole face makeover for me which looked pretty great, aside from the pounds of mascara she coated me with. I bought a few new cosmetics as well. All in all, it was a very relaxing Saturday.
