Dot to Dot

As you are reading this, I am jetting away to Palm Springs, CA.
A much needed respite and as I have never been there, I am super excited.
I can't wait to people watch!
I actually wore this outfit last Wednesday when we had our fabulous cool snap. 
 I couldn't resist getting out the boots and scarf.
I decided to do a little dot to dot print mixing or matching depending on your take. 
 I love the effect.
I do realize from these pictures that I need to get out the shoe polishing kit
 and work on my boots and
 probably all the other winter shoes in my closet. 
 That will have to wait until I get back from my little vacay. 

I don't know when I will be posting next,
 but hope to take lots of pictures while away.

Have you ever been to Palm Springs?
What is one thing you highly recommend to do while there?

sweater-Old Navy
scarf-Gap
pants-Loft
boots-Target
earrings-Daisy Fuentes via Kohl's
bracelet-JewelMint
watch-Jewel Box

Love the mix of dots and the look of those boots! I'm still waiting for it get cool enough to wear boots around here.

Enjoy Palm Springs, I was there many, many years ago and it was just lovely!

I almost stopped reading after your opening sentence - so jealous!

Our cold snap lasted like one day. It's almost 80 degrees today. I call this NO SEASON weather, and it makes getting dressed every day almost depressing...:/

Love your dots, bright and cheerful on these drizzly days we've been enjoying in NC, almost like the UK or Seattle!

Hope your getaway is relaxing.

have so much fun! Don't polish your boots- they are supposed to look distressed! Those are great Frye knock-offs Target did!

Oooh Palm Springs, one city I haven't been to in CA but have always wanted to! Take lots of pics for us (and some people watching ones if you can swing it!) Love the dots and I hear ya on the boots- mine are all ruined from snow and pavement salt!

I say go for the "worn-in" look with the boots! It's very old money ;-)

Love that you were able to wear your fall wear. Temperatures are still in the high 90s, so I'm still in summer wear. Your top is too cute. I'll have to check out that NYX palette :)

I am so terribly jealous of your vacation! This dot mixing looks great and it's so subtle I almost didn't notice it. I also have to find my harness boots, which I'm sure could use a little TLC before winter sets in!

This is such a fun look, I love the double dots!! I hope you're having fun (had fun?) in Palm Springs. I've never been before, but it sounds like an amazing place to go!

If I don't find a sweater as cute as this soon at the thrift, I am going to have to buy new. Love the pants and the fit/style. Really nice outfit Brett. Dawn suitcase vignettes
