All Dotty

I'm trying out the inspiration method of dressing today and am not sure if I carried it out or not.  The inspiration outfit from two birds was Kate Bosworth in a floaty skirt, sweatshirt and runners.  Not exactly what I can wear to work.

So I wore this, substituting a biggish sweater for the sweatshirt and flats for the runners. What do you think?
Pink Calico: Dots Outfit

The floaty skirt I found in the PJs section - it came with a matching tank, but I don't think it is nightwear.  It's that chiffony fabric that wouldn't be very comfortable to sleep in.  There are 2 sizes of dots: big yellow ones and small white ones.

I didn't have a blue tee and black seemed to clash so I decided to go overboard on the dots and wore my dotty black tee with my dotty made-it-myself scarf which has yellow and black dots.

Here's a closeup:

I liked all the dots, and it was comfy, but the whole outfit felt a bit frumpy (or perhaps the lower half) - I think because of the shoes.  Plus the skirt was a bit big so I had to wear it lower down than usual.

I'm linking to these link parties today:

  4. I really like combining polka dots like this, Narda - and I don't see frumpy at all. You look pulled together and very happy!

  5. I keep wanting to do one of the TwoBirds challenges, but I never have the pieces. I want to applaud your take on it. I had no runners and didn't even try!

    1. You know, I've been checking it out each week because Mongs usually links up, but always AFTER when it is too late. Then this week for once, I saw the inspiration before Monday et voila!

  6. I love pattern mixing so I don't think you went overboard on the dots at all- just the right amount of busy. You look great!

    1. Thanks Bella! I like mixing patterns too, but sometimes am a bit unsure if I've done it right.
