Casual Friday + Polka Dots

polka dots + scarf 5

This Friday’s casual outfit was a complete recreation of a look from Happily Grey (see her outfit here). I pinned this look awhile back from my friend and once I got this polka dot top for my birthday, I remembered how striking a beige/black polka dot top looks with a neon scarf (Yup, that’s right… I can seriously remember WAY too many of the things I’ve pinned… kind of scary). Since I just got my neon infinity scarf with my January budget, it was the perfect time to try this look. I hate to admit that Casual Fridays are not easy for me.  During the week I’m usually in pencil skirts, maxis or work pants, so I am really focused on dressing up.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being able to wear jeans at my job every Friday, but because I’ve been out of the habit of dressing more casually or dressing up jeans, it makes it hard for me to get it right. This is why I need inspiration… this is why Pinterest, other bloggers like Mary from Happily Grey and YOU make life so awesome. THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS INSPIRING ME!

Stay Classy My Friends. (haha, anyone else a fan of Anchor Man?!) Have a fabulous weekend!

P.S. Do you see me talking to myself in the second to last photo? I think I’m saying something like IT’S NOT COLD, IT’S NOT COLD… complete lies though. NEGATIVE 11 degrees when we took these photos this morning. Ugh.

    I wish I had a photographic memory like you to remember my pins! LOL, loving the bright scarf with the polka dots. And there is nothing wrong with trying to convince yourself that its warm while you’re taking outfit pics outside!

    I love this. Our office is almost TOO casual for my tastes. When I wear heels or even a skirt I look like an alien. This is what casual Friday SHOULD look like. Not a concert tee and jeans and sneakers. Good job!

      Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one… it kind of freaked me out that I immediately thought back to that pin when I got this top lol :)

    OMG Rachel I totally get that. I have a hard time with casual Fridays as well. I don’t know why. I seek inspiration for that from bloggers and pinterest as well.

    Kudos to you taking pictures outside on such a frigid cold morning!!

    I love this look, the polka dot sweater is so fun and the scarf is a great pop of color with it!!

    I love this look. The polka dot top is great. I’d pinned the same image on Pinterest as well. I really need to start weeding through my pins to find looks to recreate. I’m currently not doing a good job of it. Love your take on this look.

    I hope you don’t get sick with that type of temperature and no coat! You do look cute though, lol! I love Pinterest for style inspiration too!

      Haha, luckily I was only outside for like 5 minutes! My boyfriend and I have learned how to take photos VERY quickly in these kind of temps!
