I know it sounds ridiculous given what I’m wearing in these pictures, but… stripes aren’t my favorite thing. I don’t hate them! And I wear them (clearly).
But in this outfit, I’m really only wearing them to better showcase my true love, which is polka dots. Because it’s awesome how nicely this ridiculous scarf and traditional striped shirt play together.
Speaking of polka dots, I’ve been stalking this amazing gold polka dotted watch ever since I saw it pop up in the blogosphere. I normally don’t like wearing watches (or things on my wrists in general, aside from hair binders of course), but a) this particular one is amazing and b) sometimes it’s a heck of a lot more polite to be able to check the time by surreptitiously checking out your wrist, as opposed to whipping out your phone. I’m excited to use it to add some playfulness to my work wardrobe, but for right now I’m thrilled with how well it pairs with my favorite polka dotted scarf.
