Polka Dot Love..

Posted on: June 21, 2013

I love Polk a Dots and today’s look is an easy way to do them using an accessory…

I’ve worn this Loft thrifted dress before,  but this time chose a polk a dot belt and red floral ballet flats by Aerosoloes that I was able to score online sale for just $19.99. Mine are no longer available , but this one is a great subsitution.

 I highly recommend checking out Aerosoles website as they do great sales often and send you info in your e-mail… Three years ago my daughter and I were able to get boots in the middle of the summer for just $14.99 on  a one day clearance.  

I guess I was dancing and being silly before these photos and my necklace is askew in every photo…

This Necklace is a saphire from Samuel B via  Shop NBC 

There is nothing like this one in his collection online right now, but he comes several times a year with more, so you could check back…

I changed out the ballet flats here for a pair of  heels for a more appropriate look to go out to dinner with my husband.

My sterling bracelet was purchased via Ebay for just $ 5  and my Necklace was $40…

Outfit Total:  58.50

Dear Readers, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I had a lot of  fun with my neice this week,but was so tired after only 3hours of sleep last night that I took  a  3hour nap as soon as she left today. So glad my children are all older and fended for themselves for dinner. As soon as I saw this outfit,  I thought I should have saved it for July 4th…:)

Gratitude

I am grateful that I was able to take a 3 hour nap tonight and was back up by 9pm.. I could have slept longer and been up in the middle of the night again (like the 3am wake up that caused the need for this nap..)

I am grateful for my 3am wake up as my 17 year old was also awake (he had passed out at 8:30pm and was wide awake) We had the most amazing quality conversations about how he assimilated information as a child and what he took from things and experiences… I am truly impressed with this young man and future eye surgeon. 

I am grateful that my children unloaded and loaded the dishwasher during my nap and cleaned up the kitchen after cooking themselves dinner. 

I am grateful  for my oldest opening up to me about something he misinterpreted years ago and that has made him suffer needlessly and that he is now free of it…makes me  want to spread the word again about Byron Katie’s “The Work”

Hey Tracey, I’ve been happily reading through many of your posts, and this outfit is one of my favourites. I do love polka dots, and navy…and red also. These colours, and this design line is so very flattering on you. You look lovely!
