Two Halves Do Not Make a Hole...or a Dot!

I went to bed last night planning to style my polka dotted skirt for Everybody, Everywhere.  But, this morning, when time to actually get dressed, I was at a total loss of how to style the skirt.  The outfit I had pictured in my head looked really strange when I actually put it on.  After trying multiple tops with the skirt, I decided to move on to my polka dotted tank top...that was a epic fail also.  The top just seemed to scream look at all these dots smattered all over my big boobs..ahhhh!!
So, I decided to go back to what is familiar, comfy and makes my body smile...a dress, cardi and tights...but I decided to try to funk it up a bit and wear my new oxfords and face earrings.  




 I think the outfit worked...not that exciting...but it works for a day of school drop off, work, doctors appointment and back home again.  I really love these new Bass oxfords I bought in New York.  I had a brown pair just like these all through grammar school and I wore them till they literally fell apart! Wearing these make me feel like a silly kid again....be prepared to see them a lot in the future on this blog!


Worn to Work Tuesday, March 8
I was much too tired for anything exciting today.  Why is it that when you get back from a vacation, you need another vacation to get over the first one!!! Just my go to black sheath dress today with a funky blazer and face necklace...came as a matching pair with the earrings from above, but I hate wearing a full set together, I like to break them up with other accessories.

Stay tuned for a day 2 NY recap!

That dress is really cute. I think it is smart to stick to clothes that make you happy.

that plaid blazer is so perfect! I love those sleeves.

I have necklace/earring sets as well, but I like to wear them separately.

I hate when the outfit in your head doesn't translate well in real life!

But I have to say...the replacement dress? Love it! And the face jewelry is really cool :)

Can't wait to read the rest of the NYC recap.

I love the face jewelry!!! SO different! I am the exact same way, I might buy matching earrings and necklace, but I'll never where them together. I love the dress on you in the first pic too.
