Nov 16th, Polka Dots!

I bought this cute polka dot blouse at Target a while ago- and haven’t had the chance to wear it yet.

Has anyone else noticed that I have found some really cute things at Target lately! Gotta love Target!

Polka dots are really trendy right now- and I will say that personally, I only like them in small doses! On younger (or perhaps hipper) women- they can look lovely- but on the other hand- you DO NOT want to look like Minnie Mouse!

However, a nice, subtle polka dot can be a great addition to your wardrobe.  I’m wearing black work pants today- this is a very typical working mom staple. I prefer the pants on the left (even in the winter) than the long, baggy version on the right. Yes, my ankles look a little cold- but I’ll survive (as long as I am inside most of the day).

I also think by tucking the blouse in I look more polished- and the pink belt is a fun way to add a little color into the look.

May 21st, Return of the Pink Panther

I’m definitely aging myself by using this title- but I couldn’t resist! These pants are just SO PINK!

I love them, but in the photos they appear even brighter than in real life (at least I think so)!

I’ve paired them with one of my favorite tops- you may recognize it, I have it in cream, black and grey. This is the grey version, although the lighting is so bad it appears black. Sorry about that!

It’s a great top because of the flattering neckline, the ruching in the tummy area, and the cute sleeves.

These pants are so attention seeking that I’m keeping things pretty simple today, just a plain top and this fabulous statement necklace. Again, you may recognize this, I wore it earlier in the month with the black version of this shirt. I guess I’m a creature of habit!

My thoughts are- if something works, why change it?

Have a wonderful Monday!

I like these wedges with these pants- they are dressy enough for work- and still really comfy.
