Everybody, Everywhere: Polka Dots!

  Polka Dots | Everybody, Everywear

I'm so glad Linda & Liz chose Polka Dots for this months Everybody, Everywear.  I have a few fantastic polka dot pieces (mostly from Grandma) that I love, love, love.  One is shown up there, and another here.  I'm definitely pulling that 2nd red one back out this summer after I bring the hemline way up and remove the sleeves (sorry G)!  But back to this black and white blouse.  LOVE.  The collar detail that ties up into a bow can make this top both sophistcated and causal.   I've worn this blouse so many different ways I can't even begin to tell you. Though it isn't displayed here, this top is a fantastic canvass for color!  I think this outfit here is one of my all time favorites.  Can't wait to see how all the other gals polka their dots!  Here are a few of my other PD pices:

You are polka queen with all those variations of the polka dot!
I like today's a lot - with the tie, the white vest, the red nails, and the frayed shorts with tights. It all works so well together. You look on trend without looking like you are following anyone else's idea at all!
Thanks for joining us at EBEW today!

I am in LOVE with your top! Plus, cut-offs and tights is like one of my favorite things ever. I'll be utilizing this outfit style for my 8 hour car trip on Thursday night so I'm comfy but still pulled together and fashion forward. You look smashing, darling!

This shirt is fantastic and I love how you styled them with the frayed cut offs! you've reminded me how much I need to try tights and shorts.

I agree with linda, this polka dot edition was made for you!
