Polka Dot Passion

Sharing is caring!

I’m a big fan of polka dots. I deemed the pattern as my daughter’s “favorite” before she was even born, just so I could have permission to buy up anything with polka dots on it. My polka dot passion has no bounds. So when I saw a beautiful, breezy, flowingly green and white polka dot shirt on 599fashion.com, I had to grab it up.

This was an outfit I wore to brunch during our black tie wedding weekend in New York City. I decided to add in the purple and white polka dot scarf to my head for a downtown feel to the outfit.

The black skinny jeans are a pair I bought from Forever 21 last year. I’ve been converted to Forever 21 jeans. The cut of them seem to fit me just right, and the prices can’t be beat.

The motorcycle boots are from JustFab.com. I featured them, along with the rest of my boot collection, in a video a few months ago. I’m a firm believer that every woman should have a pair of motorcycle style boots. They just make you feel bad ass and chic all at the same time. Also, if you are a girly-girl, you can easily wear a pair with a heel.

This outfit was perfect for walking around Manhattan since it was comfortable, light, but New York stylish at the same time. Also, the shirt was only 5.99. Did I mention that already? I’ve gotten so many great pieces from 599 Fashion, and I’m looking forward to showing them off in my Fashion Friday posts this summer. I love coming across websites that offer trendy items at a discounted price. There’s nothing worse than paying an arm and a leg for a trend that you love but you know will be out of style within 18 months.

Do you have a pattern that you have a long-time love for?

    With you on the polka dots. Totally. And, Forever 21 has been my happy place lately. Never thought I’d be saying that in my 30s!

      I know! F21 is really stepping up by providing some good staples. Their prices make my day.
