WIWW: Purple and Polka Dots + Link Up




Who doesn't love a little sidewalk picture action? Ummmm, me. I literally stood at our front door, waited until no cars were coming...ran outside with Chris...snapsnapsnapsnapsnapsnap...and ran back inside. Whew.

I am normally never embarrassed. Honestly, not much embarrasses me, but for some reason taking random pictures on the sidewalk is embarrassing to me. I mean I have to see the people that drive by almost everyday. Okay, that is an exaggeration, but I don't want to be "that" couple that is always outside taking pictures...of the wife on a sidewalk. Weird. 

Now for what I am wearing.

Hello? Did anyone notice that adorable polka dotted blazer?! (swoon)

That blazer came home with me a couple days before Christmas. On my "need to get before resolution starts" list was blazers. I am afraid that I may have to meet with clients more this year, or even be assigned to work at the client's office...in which case I would be asked to wear a suit everyday. Blah. Let's pray that doesn't happen, but if it does, I need to be prepared

This was the only polka dotted blazer in site...ON THE SALE RACK! When I picked it up I saw that it was an extra small. I am small, but in some ways I am built like a softball player. I don't think it is a bad thing, being that I played that sport in college, but let's just say I haven't fit in an extra small in yearsss...yada yada...what I am trying to say is that I am normally not an extra small. 

I am still not even convinced I am an extra small, but I fit in the jacket and that's all.that.matters. I mean I can't hug anyone, or pull my arms across my body, or even type at my computer because I am afraid at any given moment the back will split, BUT the important thing is that I am the proud owner of an adorable polka dotted blazed. Plus it was only $12.68 sooo...Winning. 




And now for the normal par-tayyy. You know the drill.

  1. I am the same as you with photos, I get really embarrassed. The snow has been the perfect opportunity for me to take some outdoor shots as we went up where there is some lovely scenery and took the shots there, it doesn't look so weird when doing it with scenery behind I think (looks like you are taking pictures of the snow rather than your outfit and the snow lol) This is such a lovely outfit, the colour of the top is lovely (it actually just reminded me of a top I have hiding in my wardrobe which is a similar material and colour so thank you for that) I think the blazer looks to fit you perfectly and that's all that matters, who cares if you can't hug or type haha.

    Thanks for hosting the link up, I have linked up and put the badge in my post :)

  2. Oh my gosh, that blazer - I'm in love! And I love it paired with the purple! And I get so embarrassed having my pictures taken, too. I'm so used to being behind the camera that I feel self conscious when I'm in front!

  7. Oh my gosh! I love that polka dot blazer. And I totally hate it when I'm out in front of the house strutting down the street and the neighbors drive by really slowly. Or worse yet, walk their dogs by. UGH! The worst. Fashion blogger problems. :)

    You look adorable and your hair is SO pretty and shiny. Thanks for linking up today!

    1. Oh the awkward pics :)

      Thank you! I was blessed (?) with a cowlick so my hair doesn't lay flat in the back! I have been rockin' the poof before the poof was cool LOL...all because I had no other option!

  14. Polka Dottie Hottie! Love the color blouse you paired it with. It all pulls together beautifully! I am a blazer fanatic and so far, my riskiest print has been black and white striped. But I need to learn to be braver with patterns. :)

  15. LOVE your look! Those boots are fab, and I really like the purple ruffled top with the polka dot jacket. I have been known to also buy things that aren't exactly the right size when they are an awesome deal. You do what you gotta do right? lol!
