Daily Threads: Feeling Polka-Dotty

blouse: ny&co | sweater: banana republic | skinny jeans: tj maxx | boots: steve madden

Today is my first day of being a fashion blogger! Kind of - I've definitely been fashion blogging during the past month (duh), but it was part of the 30 for 30 challenge. Now I'm doing cause I want to - and I'm pretty excited about it!

Ever since the remixing part of my brain was put into motion I've been planning this outfit. It's a classic "Linley" look: boots, skinny jeans, and a sweater, but normally I would have not worn the polka-dot underneath and probably would have just wrapped a scarf around my neck. It's pretty simple, but I love this look. That bow-tie, polka-dot shirt is my favvvvorite! It's sleeveless and I'm pretty excited I now have a way to wear it during the winter! Boom. I'm definitely going to challenge myself to continue remixing it throughout the winter.

Love the bow-tie top! I'm on the search for another {my black one is hard to layer due puffy sleeves} and now I'm even more motiviated to find one.
