Rockin' the Dots
So, probably only people who live on the West Coast will see this before Polka Dot Day is officially up, but I did actually participate! I just am late in posting these.
Thank you for your patience as I get through these adjustments in life right now! It is an adjustment to what my regular routine has been. Life right now is all about finding the new routine and being flexible and adaptable to the changes - exciting changes - that are going on in life. It's all about finding new times to take pictures, finding new times to edit them, finding new times to post and write about the process, finding new times to visit my inspiring fellow bloggers and see the creations that they are coming up with. So again, thank you for bearing with me :).
Anyway - This outfit came out of the fact that it was National Polka Dot day, according to the lovely founders of Everybody, Everywear :). I decided to participate. I love polka dots and actually posted an outfit quite recently that was entirely made up of polka dots. Instead of submitting that picture though, I decided to search the closet and come up with something new, while also taking a bit of a risk. This outfit is all about the pattern mix. A zebra stripe with polka dots, using brown and red to unify the look. It's kind of crazy, but kind of works, and is all me. And as my new coworkers get to know me, it's going to be outfits like this that is going to introduce them to the creative side of me :).
