Highly Recommended


It took me a long time to figure out why this outfit looked so familiar to me, but it finally dawned on me that I'd seen a similar outfit from an Anthro or Ruche ad some time ago.  I don't have time to search for it to show you, but I think it was maroon pants with a lightly colored dotted top and a light sweater over it.  I loved it back then and still love it now!  

This top is one of my favorite pieces, especially during colder seasons for some reason.  It layers really well with cardigans and sweaters, and it goes with basically any pair of pants I own.  I try not to tell collective masses of people that they NEED something, but I will say that I'd highly recommend a top like this.  Option #1 from Kohl's below is a nice semi-sheer that has a sort of scratched dots look like the one I'm wearing.  And then Option #2 is a really cute option from LOFT and everything's 40% off right now!

  2. I bought a similar shirt a few months ago and have been pairing it with basically everything in my wardrobe - it's just perfect!

  3. Wow, this is super cute! I am really bummed that my polka dot blouse like this shrunk in the wash a while back :( I would have loved to wear it with my maroon pants like you did here! I'll just have to find a suitable replacement!

  5. I love my polka dot top too! Love it with the maroon pants. I'd love some, but Target jeans never fit right on me.

  7. I think polka dotted and striped tops can be incredibly versatile -- must haves in my opinion as well!

  8. That top is so adorable! I love the colored pants. Ha, and it definitely does seem like a ruche or an anthro outfit!

  15. Polka dots make me happy! And that purse...I bought it a while ago, when you posted about it. Can't tell you HOW MANY compliments I get on it, all the time! Now I'm wanting it in other colors!

  16. Thanks! I like the Old Navy fit better : )

  17. I'm having a problem finding colored skinny jeans that will hold up in the wash. I've had Rockstars from Old Navy before, but they started to lose their shape after only five washes or so. Any recommendations for brands that will last longer and bring value to my wardrobe? In particular, I'm interested the maroon, like you have here, and maybe something in a tan. Thoughts?

    I meant to post my comment in this thread.


    I really like the jeans you are wearing but need a mid rise and curvy fit, I can only find them in dark washes never color. Any suggestions?
