{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:

I never would have thought to combine chambray with polka dot shorts! I actually prefer your booties. Something about wedges just feels cozy. Great job styling!

You both look fabulous! I do like her booties more, but you are seriously the queen of accessories! I love the pieces you mixed & matched!

I think you both did a good job too. Love the little doggie for an accessory, lol, and the blue nail polish!
