The Tiny Heart: Polka Dots & Cobalt

1.31.2012

Polka Dots & Cobalt


Blazer-Forever 21 (similar), Shell-Old Navy (here), Skirt-Express (similar), Belt-H&M (similar), Flats-Target (similar), Clutch-Target (similar)

I went shopping with the hubby this weekend to find him a suit. Would you believe the man does not have ONE suit in his closet? The only time in the 5 years we've been together I ever saw him in a suit was for our wedding (and that was a rental!).

He had two things in mind while shopping: 

1. Look like James Bond.

2. The suit must fit as well as Ryan Gosling's suits do in Crazy Stupid Love.

Hubby wound up purchasing a suit in Macy's and will be tailoring it to achieve #2. He already tried it on again when we got home and he's walking around saying "suit up!" (like Barney on How I Met Your Mother) so you know he loves it! 

I'm sure you're dying to see it, but alas, I must keep you in suspense till he debuts it at a friend's wedding in 2 weeks!

  1. So cute! I love the faint polka-dot pattern in your top... it's not too loud but adds a fun touch :)

    1. I just started watching HIMYM just a few months ago so now I want to get the DVDs so I can watch the show in order! I can't believe I didn't know about it sooner, it's so hilarious.

    1. Haha Bessie! Nope, no motorcycle for the wedding since I will be in a dress. :) The Harley will probably make an appearance soon in my blog though! We used it as a prop for our engagement photos and they came out awesome.

  14. So I click on your blog like normal and I seriously gasp when I see your outfit! It is EXACTLY like mine in my current post!! No seriously! It's crazy :-) Well, there are a few things different (I don't have the cool blazer or the same type of shoes) but still...great minds think alike girl!

    You look awesome!!

  15. Haha! Your husband sounds just like mine. He doesn't own a suit either (he works from home), and I'm sure he would say "Suit up!" right away if he had one on. Also, I love this color combo, you look stunning :)
