Dot...Dash...Dot...

Polka dots...polka dots everywhere...  Polka dots...polka dots here and there... 
I have been seeing polka dots everywhere lately...bloggers styling them, people on the street, fall fashion previews and catalogs...  I never had any dotted pieces in my closet...until recently...
I was inspired by the the fabulous way Shea of Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique styles up polka dots...so when I spied these pieces at Old Navy, I took that inspiration and got dressed.

Worn to work Monday, August 6

Love this sweater.  It is thin cotton, so it is perfect for summer.  I have so many ideas how I can style it for the cooler temps too...under a blazer...layers with a button up shirt underneath... Just thinking about it makes me excited for fall boots, tights, blazers and breezy temperatures...as I sit here in 89 degrees sweating!!

Styling my polka dots all casual for the weekend.  I wore this to a barbecue on Sunday.  I have been wearing these fun shorts all week with various color t-shirts and tank tops.  I wanted to take more photos of this outfit, but it was 8 o'clock by the time we got home and by camera battery was yearning to be charged...one shot...then it died...

All hail the polka dot!!

Okay, while I love the sweater with the bright skirt, those shorts just make me SWOON! I wish I could look good in shorts like that. I might actually wear some. :) Hope you had a great weekend!

Thanks for the shout out Randi! I love both of these looks and now I'm thinking I need that Old Navy sweater. It looks like such a great piece to transition to fall!

Polka dots are a wonderful thing! I love the way you styled that sweater! I bet it will be a great piece for fall as well! I just picked up a polka dot skirt that I am pretty excited about. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

Randi!! If I didnt' have a million other things to do this afternoon and no money to spend, I'd race over to Old Navy asap and get those shorts. Those are SO super cute!! And they look fantastic on you! =)

Hey, awesome outfits! So excited to find your blog. I was wondering how you felt the sizes ran for the polka dot sweater. Also, is that the Target ponte skirt? If so, how is sizing on that?

In love with that first look. Then I scrolled down and saw those polka dotted shorts? What? Oh, and those metallic boat shoes are fab.

xo,

Thanks for finding me. I found the sizing on the old navy sweater to tend towards big. The skirt is that target one and runs true to size.
