Crazy for polka dots

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.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

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.

The goods:

Zigi Girl Talia boot – Nordstrom $129.00

Halogen Bomber jacket – Nordstrom $64.90

Caslon removable fur jacket – Nordstrom $64.90

Halogen Roll Sleeve shirt – Nordstrom $37.90

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.
