Let the Stripes Begin!

So this Wednesday has been a little crazy. My first draft of my thesis was due today. I went to the doctor and got some shots that made me woozy (and sleepy. Like I slept pretty much the entire afternoon sleepy). But I lived through it. You just get a late post :) Oh well. Better late than never.

So, this week I really embraced my love of stripes and polka dots. Seriously. Take a look:
Best striped scarf ever! Bought it on sale at Down East Basics.
 The dress is actually a sun dress. I bought it earlier this ear (like February earlier) at Target. However, I love using sun dresses and transitioning them for Fall/Winter by using layering, leggings and long sleeve shirts.

My favorite owl accessorie. Seriously, I love this belt!
I also got it at Target.

This scarf is a staple in my wardrobe. I use it with a lot of my stripped sweaters just for a fun pop of color. (And, of course, I bough it at Target.) The earrings are made by my incredible Sister in law Julianne from madebyjewls.

 This is one of my all time favorite sweaters. I got it from H&M for only $14.00! It is super comfy and perfect for cool weather. The tree necklace is something I made (and occasionally sell. Let me know if you are interested!) and I got the earrings from Forever 21 :)

I am really enjoying transitioning my wardrobe into Fall. Of course, I never know what the weather is going to be like, so layering is a must. And, my office is always freezing cold. So I have been dressing for a blizzard when I go into work. Usually that just means a sweater over the sweater I am already wearing. Whatevs.

So... this is the part where I would try to talk about something meaningful. But I got some shots today and they have made me incredibly tired. So instead, I am going to go to bed now like a reasonable human being.

I hope you have had a wonderful week thus far! And I want to know, do you wear a lot of stripes or polkadots? And if you do, how do you incorporate them into your wardrobe?

  1. Both polka dots and stripes are loveable...I even like them together. Your fall sundress is so cute!

    1. Thank you! I am finding that most of my wardrobe now has stripes or polka dots incorporated somewhere. And I love it!
