how to wear polka dots and spots

I am in so love with polka dots and spots right now! The Zara jeans I have had for a while, they are very similar to a pair of Marc Jacobs jeans that were retailing at £110! These were £30; a bargain! I have always wanted a polka dot blouse so I was very happy when I saw this one in Topshop. I think the blouse and jeans work well together. What do you think?






















We took these photos in a cute little village not far from where we live. The sun kept trying to come out! We were on our way to a quaint pub for lunch. A great way to spend a Saturday!

What would you wear a polka dot blouse with? Linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday, Elena from DC in Style for Monday Bloom, Renae from Simply Sequins for Fashion Friday and Rachel from Rachel The hat for Passion for fashion, Friday Fab Favourites and What I Wore.

Zara jeans (last seen here)
Topshop blouse
H&M shoes
Ted Baker bag (last seen here)
Primark sunnies
Topshop necklace and rings
River Island bracelet

    1. Awwww thank you very much. This has fast become my favourite outfit. Apparently if the pattern is regular then it's polka dots. If the pattern is irregular then it's spots! :-)

  6. It is a stunning blouse. It would look great with a leather or faux leather pencil skirt.

  10. Yes. Very nice combinations ... you did a grand job styling your casual little outfit. I especially love the tiny detail of the little chevron-shaped rings. Effortless but with lots and lots of charm!

  16. Love! I rarely go a day without wearing polka dots haha! If for whatever reason I manage to - I always have my polka dotted pj's to offset the lack of them during the day! I have a special place in my heart for that blouse <3
