Everybody, Everywear: Polka Dots

It's that time again! Time for the Everybody, Everywear Challenge.  

Polka Dots | Everybody, Everywear

Thanks to Linda and Liz for being the genius behind this idea. 
And Linda's husband for being an awesome webmaster!
Today's challenge is Polka Dots.
  Surprisingly I really had nothing polka dot in my closet. 
The closest thing I could come up with was this cardi with spots, not really dots. 
Well, we work with what we have right?!

I actually wore this yesterday, Monday.
  It was a bit chillier than I would have liked, 
but I love this pop of color to usher in spring.
Yes, that is me looking for the spring weather.
It was here all during the 30 x 30 when I had heavy winter clothes, 
now where did it go?
Preppy and Polka dots are like a good episode of Miami Vice!
Well, you knew I couldn't wear a long necklace without the boob magnet attached!

PS.  Lots of comments were made on my blue eyes yesterday.
I cannot tell a lie, those eyes were photoshopped.
For some reason shooting in the basement gave me terrible red eye.
The red eye corrector wasn't even strong enough to help.
Solution: photoshop a color onto eyes
My eyes really are blue, just not that blue. :)

This is the third of the blogs I follow that I have read today and it is also the third one about polka dots. I think I'm going dotty.

I knew it! I see the blue eyes and thought: wow!, how can she look like that?! I ran through all the possibilities and none seemed right. Thanks for 'fessin' up. :)

I love polka dots, but I must be like you; I don't think I have any in my closet.

Very cute.

Linda said...

I had a hard time with the polka dots, too! I had to reach WAY back in the closet to find something to wear. I think the cardigan you chose is great.
Thanks for the EBEW love!

The color combination here is making me very happy.

That Gap trench is super duper soft, you're right. Here's a link for the jacket. http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=6951&vid=1&pid=827916&scid=827916002
