Polka Floral

Hello, All!  I’m sorry for being gone so long.  I was fighting a cold all last week and I’m sorry to say the cold won this weekend.  I was out of commission yesterday and I’m still fuzzy today.  But, I dragged myself out of bed this morning and stumbled into this outfit:

Which is only okay.  The colors are good and I love me a good polka floral combination, but this isn’t the most flattering silhouette. 

I think the vintage Janzten skirt (thrifted) with the polka dot blouse (thrifted) is good.  But the cardigan (men's vintage Janzten, thrifted) needs to be slimmer.  And a different shoe is probably in order as well.  I wore my riding boots (Born Crown “Sosie” via Nordstrom) but a bootie might have been better.  Either less bulk on the top or the bottom and the outfit would have been more flattering.

But, hey, what are you gonna do?  You win some, you lose some and when I’m sick, it’s all I can do to get dressed, without worrying if it works or not.  Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow and won’t look as if the abominable snowman discovered polka floral.

Happy Tuesday, All!



  1. Excellent skirt! I just got a sweater in that colour too, so pretty :)

  2. Good colours & I love a polka/floral combination, as well. Hope you're on the mend and feeling better very soon!

  3. Gracey, trust me when I saw you look better than I do right now and Im not even sick! Kudos to you! Love following your blog, hope you feel better! Maybe you can check my blog out sometime. if you like the content i would love if you could follow me back!



  4. I'm glad you're healthier, now. It seems like a lot of people are coming down with sickness (I've been lucky so far...) and it is no fun!

    Ahhh, the color of that cardigan is wonderful. Are you gonna try taking it in?

  5. So glad you are feeling better! Colds are the worst! You look so cute and kinda indie. Mixing the prints and breaking them up with a solid looks soo good.


  6. love your knee high boots :) you look beautiful!
    your blog is so nice sweetie, would you like us to follow each other? :)

  9. I feel you on the cold front. I'm still fuzzy and muzzy and snuffly, and I'm amazed I didn't just shuffle to work in my sweats this morning. Loving your Mr. Rogers cardigan! Flattering silhouettes be damned.

  10. ok so I'm catching up on some of my favorite blogs and scrolled down to this post - I love what you have going on with this outfit - the floral and polka dots (and color scheme) honestly coudn't be more perfect together! but I also understand your critiques - what if you just belted the cardigan?? would that help to define your waist and give a little more shape to the outfit? because I really really love it!!!


Hooray! Comments! I love comments!! (And cake, but if you just leave a comment, I'll manage the cake on my own).
