Polka Dottie

date 08-24-2011
blazer: Nordstrom Rack
blouse: H&M
shorts: Old Navy
booties: DSW

I just purchased this blouse from H&M, and there was some trepidation at first due to all the volume. Which I often find makes me look hippy-er than I am, but the sheerness of the fabric along with a contrasting cami underneath helps to show off my shape (thanks for the tip mom!). I am really excited to style this top tucked into everything!

Short suits are in style this fall and this was my take on the look. I found that a cheap way to stay on-trend is to pair a blazer and shorts that you already own in dark solids. No one has to know that you bought them from different places!

      Thanks so much for the kind words!

      I love your blog! I wish I’d started style blogging in college, my photos would have been much less unfortunate. If you’re serious about meeting, drop me a line.

Let me know what you think!
