The Tiny Heart: Polka Dot Dress Remix

12.11.2013

Polka Dot Dress Remix





Cardigan-American Eagle (similar Arizona Slub Cardigan), Dress-Target (similar Forever 21 Polka Dot Dress in Black), Belt-Target (similar Merona Mint Skinny Belt),
Boots-Bakers (similar Gabrielle Rocha Grey Suede Boots)

It snowed yet again yesterday. Despite living in New Jersey, I am not a huge fan of snow. (It's pretty for an hour and then it's muddy and disgusting). It's not quite as bad when it snows on the weekend, but I really despise it when I have to drive to/from work in it. Cue me having a panic attack, constantly checking the weather forecast the entire day. I am ready to book my plane ticket to Florida right now

This polka dot dress probably looks familiar to you. I've worn the dress by itself, in the spring with a denim jacket and booties, as a top with mint skinny jeans, and paired with a yellow cardigan. Before I started blogging, I'd wear an item over and over the same way. Now I've learned the beauty of remixing...it creates "new" outfits and curbs my urge to always go shopping.

  3. Blogging has taught me to be a good "remixer" as well. And boo to that snow....I really can't stand it either (and we barely ever get it!)

  6. Come to Florida!!! Although we just had a cold front come through... it was in the 40's this morning. But no snow. That's almost guaranteed.

  12. You are always so adorable! I love this outfit, too. Isn't it great how blogging makes us dress nicer?! I always think that even if I don't continue blogging forever at least I will have learned how to grow my wardrobe!

  17. I'm a Colorado native and I can totally relate. I have always lived with snow and I still hate to drive in it or be in it for any significant amount of time and I still am not used to the freezing temperatures!

  18. I think that dress is adorable--and definitely very versatile, as you've shown!

  33. I was totally the same way before I started blogging - I would wear something only one way! But now I look for things that I can remix. It's great when a dress works for spring and winter! Cute!

  35. This dress is adorable!! I love polka dots so much! I've become a little better at remixing as well, but I could work on it some more instead of wearing a cute outfit over and over!
