Lookbook: Polka Dots Are the Poo

4/15/2013

Let me just say, I think I'm going to start taking all my outfit photos in the morning whenever possible. I'm absolutely smitten by how well these images turned out, and the shoot was actually a lot of early morning fun. It's so much more relaxing when you're not worrying about losing daylight.After the photos we had a doggy date with some friends and ate a nice lunch of french comfort food, which means we had yummy crème brûlée. Then later in the day we had some drinks and saw a very funny comedy show. By the way, I have no idea where I got this clutch from but isn't it awesome? Flowers and leopard print...wwhhaatt!

| Red penguin print blouse c/o Chicnova | Target Mossimo blazer | Spike & chain collar pin c/o Chicnova | Target dot jeans (similar) | DSW Luxe810 Gucci nameplate pumps | NYC City Duet 2-in-1 Empire Lilacs lipcolor | Modcloth Through the Wire headband (similar) | Classic Winchester lady watch c/o Daniel Wellington | Kudos to the hubs for climbing in a tree to get that overhead shot. And don't you just love how easy it is to spice up an ordinary shirt with only some red penguins? That's what drew me to this collared blouse from Chicnova. This site is a great option for some fab fashion finds so check them out if you haven't already.I got some blogger inspiration from Fashion Is Evolution when we were both featured in IFB's Links a la Mode last week. She did a great post on Freelensing (detaching the lens to change the focus) so we tried it out and were fairly successful.

What do you think of this look?
