The Creative Closet || Polka Dotted

2.17.2015

Polka dots = timeless and classic. I always think back to the movie "Because I Said So" with Mandi Moore. Her mom has an obsession with polka dots and Mandi wears the polka dot dress her mom buys her on all her blind dates. Random chick-flick references aside - I don't have a lot of polka dot items in my closet, it's not a pattern I am naturally drawn to for myself, but it can seriously be a flattering pattern for most women. I have loved this sweater though from Motherhood Maternity. It's been so forgiving of my growing belly and sort of camouflages my curves, which is nice when I feel like my curves are popping out everywhere!

What about you? Are polka dots your thing?


Jana looks like a natural, timeless beauty in her polka dots and I'm not surprised in the least! Kari also looks great in her polka trench. I've love that she has a pattern in such a unique piece or her outfit.

Next Tuesdays prompt, asymmetrical. I'm not going to lie, this prompt intimidates me for some reason so I am both scared and excited to come up with an outfit. It's definitely going to push me out of my comfort zone. What about you?

  4. You just can't go wrong with black and white polka dots and you are stunning. I love that you paired it with a blazer. I really like your hair pulled back, too!

  5. You and your bump are just the cutest. I have a similar blazer, and I never thought to put polka dots under it. Good thinking!

  7. Why does it seem like polka dots were meant for pregnant bellies, so precious! Love this blazer and what the accessories do for this outfit! Great combo

  8. The polka dots only add to your cute bump! They are sort of an optical illusion, I agree. I'm not personally polka dotty person, but I loved this challenge, trying to make them me! Happy Tuesday :)

  9. I love your polka dot sweater--it flatters your bump and adds some whimsy to your look! The pink lips are the perfect pop of color too. I'm terrible about remembering to wear lipstick, but you always make it look fab. Especially the pink!

  14. Black white and hot pink is always a good choice in my opinion! You paired it all perfectly with the other neutral pieces. I might have to look up that movie because I love cheesy chick flicks and I've never seen that one!
