Dots and Happy Holidays

It's a nice, balmy 50 degrees here and I am happy to wear my new ON polka dot sweater.  I first fell in love with the Madewell polka dot sweater on Blair of Atlantic Pacific and Kelly of Alterations Needed.  When I saw this version at Old Navy for only $15 (also used 30% F&F so was only ~$11) this past weekend, I snapped it up.  Other people in the store must have had the same idea because when I got there, there was a lone Sm and all the other sweaters were XXL (there are plenty of sizes online now though!).  The Small is a little roomy in the torso for me but I don't mind.

Whilst I was digging in my closet to find something to wear with it, I found this great ivory-colored, corduroy blazer from almost 10 years ago in perfect condition.  It was like finding treasure :)

Blazer:  Banana Republic, Sz 0, (old)
Sweater:  Old Navy Printed Crew-Neck Pullover, Sm, (buy here)
Shirt:  Banana Republic Button Down, Sz 0 (old)
Skirt:  Gap, Sz 4 (outlet find for $6!)
Watch:  Timex + J. Crew band
Shoes:  Gucci Magenta Wedges

Happy Holidays to everyone!!  The kiddos here don't seem to love being held by Santa Claus but they are indeed excited about Christmas :)

  20. Happy holidays! Your kids are too funny- I love their faces. I've also been looking for a polka dot sweater and the Madewell one was on my list for a while(until I decided to wait for clearance/eBay).

    The blazer works nicely with the whole look- its a great neutral to add to the mix without overwhelming the look.

  21. lol at your kids!!!! Soooo adorable!!! Santa doesn't seem to excited either...but hard to tell when a beard is covering half his face!

    Nice blazer!! I'm gonna clean my closet soon...hope I find treasure too!!

  22. Your babies are precious! Their faces are so adorable and they have hair for days. Did you make little baby girl's hairbow?
