Polka Stripes



This is an outfit I wore last week. I mixed this polka dotted top with my fun striped tee with neon pink blocking. I love how it turned out. I'm apprehensive about mixing patterns, usually. But for some reason this mixing made perfect sense to me.

On a personal note, I just got over a 30 hour migraine. It was the absolute worst migraine I've ever had. I'm so happy it's over. Now, on with the show.






Blouse and Tee and platform sandals: J Crew
Jeans: Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Steve Madden
Army jacket: Gap
Necklace: Kate Spade

Oh my gosh Tracy that sounds awful! My high school bf used to get such bad migraines he would be hospitalized- I can't imagine the pain you've been going through!

On the plus side this is a phenomenal example of colour blocking- stripes, polka dots and hot pink? Check, check & check!

Oh I so pity you and your migraines. I get them very very occasionally and they're paralyzing. I've never had one for so long.

I adore this outfit. Polka dots and stripes and neon are just a few of my favourite things :) Is that a hint of pink on your sunglasses too?

Thanks for the sweet comment about B! I'm biased but I like to think he's a cutie :)

Oh my goodness, that's just terrible! I used to get such terrible migraines, but then it was really weird. once I had my first child, I never got another one. Crazy.

I love the stripes and polka dots here! You can't go wrong with mixing such fun prints!

Im sorry to hear that you had such a bad migraine. I'm a migraineur myself and I don't envy that 30 hour one.

That said, it didn't impede your fashion sense one bit. You look gorgeous. And bonus points for the stripes, polka dots and the color block!

I love this look. I've seen this blouse all over the blogosphere and I wish I owned it too. Bummer that J Crew is sold out of this perfec little tee. You look fabulous, though. :)

Sorry to hear about your migraines. Hope you feel better.
