Hi Everyone! Today I have an outfit featuring the beloved pattern, polka dots. Lately, I've been seeing polka dots everywhere, from bloggers to stores. As much as I love stripes, I love polka dots just as much. From the big polka dot pattern to the smaller ones, I think they are so feminine and fun. It's the perfect print to wear during the warmer seasons, especially when played well with colors. Here I am wearing the Banana Republic Mara Dot Lace Top in blue and paired it off with red skinny ankle pants. I purchased these ankle pants from H&M last year for $12.95 and have worn it countless times throughout the year. The fit and length was perfect so I couldn't pass on it. However, after wearing it for the first time, I realized that these pants are wrinkle prone and can really be a pain when you want to wear them. For the price, I should have expected this and shouldn't be complaining. This style is still available in H&M in various prints and colors, but in a longer length for the same price. Lastly, to finish the outfit, I decided to go for a white blazer to bring out the polka dot lace details in the top creating a brighter look.
I first saw this shirt in white on Jess from whatjesswore here and have been searching high and low for it. It was sold out in petites on the Banana Republic website of course, but I did get to find it in an XS Regular in stores. I tried it on, in hopes that it would only be a little loose. Unfortunately, a little loose actually turned out to be way too big on me so I passed. Last week, while shopping in the city, I happened to find this in the sale section of Banana Republic for $12.97 final sale. Since it was the last one, I quickly grabbed it and held on to it as I continued to look around the store some more. This top is still a little on the loose side even in an XSP, but I did tie knots to the straps of the under layer to make it work since I haven't had the time to do alterations yet.
