{outfit post} polka dot shorts & tights

Friday, December 21, 2012


I don't know if you caught my post last week about layering for winter weather, but one of my blogger friends, Marissa from Shabby Chic and Cheap, saw a outfit I put together and said she had that exact outfit. I started thinking and I realized I had all the same components myself. So, I challenged her to a style off of sorts. The goal was to take the items shown above and create our own look. Here is how I chose to style my polka dot shorts, chambray blouse, tights and burgundy heels:
