Daily Threads: EBEW Polka Dots

{old navy top: similarMerona Black CardiganF21 Red Skirt, guess booties: similar}

Today's post is a double whammy! It's not only my last outfit of the Winter 30x30 Challenge (woohoo, cheers in the background), but it's also EBEW Polka-Dot day! So I'm knocking out two things in one - always a good day when you get a two-for-one deal!

This particular look was actually one of the first few looks I planned on wearing; however, the weather has a mysterious way of changing my plans. When the challenge started, it was freezing - so I decided I'd wear this on a warmer day. Well it definitely warmed up, but I somehow lost sight of this. Now that the challenge has come to an end and it's freezing again - but I wore it anyway.

I'm planning on a 30x30 Remix Roundup post - I'd like to see all these looks side by side - I fear they all may be similar. We shall see! After that I have tutorials, recipes, beauty posts, and spring time outfits planned! I'm super excited! And for those of you wondering - I will have the knotted bun tutorial up SOON! I just need to go record it...

Such a classic combination of b&w polka dots and red, but I love the addition of the unexpected brown shoes!

Kristin said...

I love the combo of polka dots and the vibrant red. Great!

nyhet said...

I like your outfit, too, but I don't like the brown shoes... I would prefer black (patent) shoes...or maybe red so that the outfit becomes more...rockabilly style :)

Rebecca said...

Congrats on finishing the challenge. I really like the bright red skirt!

JennaStevie said...

Yay, you look fantastic. I love the black with the red skirt. I did spots with a red skirt too today.

Liz said...

Yay! You're done! We're both done! CHEERS CHEERS CHEERS. I love how you pulled the collar of your top so it showed over the cardigan. Also loving the mix of black, white and red. Pretty much I am just loving it all, okay?

Melanie said...

So fab! I didn't include any polka-dots in my remix. I don't even own any polka-dots for that matter. Something I need to get on...
