My New Favorite Outfit: Polka Dots

Polka Dots

Ever since I saw Lisa wear this sweater I've loved it.  Last year I ruined my own polka dot top and have been looking for a replacement.  I picked this one  up at J.Crew on super clearance and am so excited to wear it.  I styled it pretty casually today with my utility jacket but I think it'll be perfect with skirts too.  

Speaking of polka dots, I just picked up this polka dot vest at Target yesterday. It's from the little girls' department.....I should be embarrassed, but I'm totally not. It's just so fun.  I hope my students and I don't twin out ; )

Sweater: J.Crew Factory same
Vest: JCP (last year) similar
Pants: Target same
Necklace: Kendra Scott inspired c/o real deal
 Bracelets: chloe + isabel c/o samesame 
Shoes: Aerosoles  same

  1. If I could wear items from the girls department, I would too! And I am adding this sweater to my very long wish list! Susan

  2. Hahaha. That vest is so worth a potential twin incident. I have to refrain from buying things from certain stores like Forever 21 because twinning out becomes a bigger concern when you teach humans that are approximately the same size as you. Haha.

  3. I wanted that top so much, but the Factory store by me was totally out of them. It's adorable on you!

  4. I agree, if I could wear items from the girls department, I would! Such cute stuff! Love this top!

  5. I always peruse the little girls department and think how cute everything is. I love that you found a vest there! I'll have to see if I can squeeze into anything. I've also thought about buying a boys vest. Polka dots are where it's at! I need to get some polka dots ASAP:)

  6. I've been eyeing that polka dot puffer for a while now...but I decided that I probably don't need another vest. Can't wait to see how you style yours!

  7. Your jewelries look fab and that polka dot top is so chic!

  9. Love this sweater with the utility vest. I have the same sweater in navy with red dots and I love how comfy it is. I am so envious that you can buy clothes in girls department - I wished I could.

    BTW, I hope you will join TBT Fashion link up. It's up on the blog now.


  10. I picked up this sweater this summer.
    I just love it, can't wait to see more ways that you style yours
    Have a great weekend

  11. AH! Such a cute outfit and you just inspired a new look for me, I have a polka dot blouse and I love my vest like this but for some reason I always feel like I struggle to wear it, thank you!

  12. Cute vest! I have an army jacket but not a vest and it looks like the perfect layering piece for fall!

  13. I love that vest! And the necklace adds the perfect cute touch as well!

  14. Your polka dot shirt is adorable. Buying clothes from the kids is a good idea it's cheaper and they are much more colorful.
