International Polka Dot Day (I Had Dots Goin' On)

Polka Dots

Blue Brogues & Polka Dots
So International Polka Dot Day was a little while ago... just before Christmas in fact. But I have a habit of getting out of sequence with my outfit posts, so you'll just have to bear with me ;)

The day was brought to my attention by the lovely Maria of Crashing Red - and I bow down to her Royal Polka Dotty-Ness. (She is one classy bird; she's Australian and experiencing some serious heat in Oz at the moment - check out her lovely summery outfits and think of warm summers days. Bliss.)

So I went all out on the polka dots: bold spotty scarf, subtle yellow and white spotty cardi, and fun spotty socks. With another pair of brogues to add to my ever expanding collection (this time blue, oh how I love this colour), it was a bit of comfy fun for the hectic run up to Christmas Day. Seems so long ago now...!

  4. As always Catherine the colours and prints you've combined look wonderful, you are a genius with print clashing and colour pairing. I really love the dotty tights and the smart/casual balance of the brogues and jeans. :)

    Take care,

  11. Dang Catherine, this outfit has my name all over it. I'm completely dotty over spots for one. And I simply love yellow and blue together. I am contemplating a serious romance with your oxfords...that colour! Yup, it's all good and I must run off and play dress up now.

    I love Maria of Crashing Red and was sorry I missed celebrating International Polka Dot Day. Perhaps 2013 will be the year.

  12. What a bright and sunny outfit. Makes me smile and think of spring. Strangely enough the tights are what pulled me in. Such cute little ankle dots!
    Have a good week!

  24. Wish I could get your brogues in Canada. You have them in a few different colours, I think. Canada isn't the best place for shopping: huge country but a population so small, the companies don't bother much with us.
