Weekend Outfit: When Know Not, Go Polka-Dot


The boyfriend came up with that snappy title when we were planning outfits for a dinner in Los Angeles. My outfit called for a pocket square, but I couldn’t decide which one. When I asked the boyfriend his opinion, he came up with that fine piece of sage advice. Words to live by, my friends.

polka-dot-white-blazer-closeI really love all the dots in this outfit. Between the sweater, pocket square, necklace, and pearl bracelets, it all just goes.

The boyfriend was on a mini stay-cation to recharge for a few days, so what did I do? Coerce him into being my personal photographer of course! Didn’t he do a great job?!

  1. BF did a great job! Love the last 2 pics. The outfit is adorable and the pocket square is just perfect. You would love my hubby’s massive collection of pocket squares : )

    Great advice! I love all the shots of polka dots! And he did an excellent job! I say he does this full time ;) Then you wouldn’t feel as awards snapping outdoor photos of yourself :P

    I love the polka dot sweater and the pocket square Kelly!  The delicate pearl necklace from J.Crew is also fab…and I’m also loving the pretty background!

    Awww…..Clinton!  He’s gotten so big :)  Your boyfriend really did do a great job with these pictures and you always have the prettiest backgrounds!

    He did a great job! And love the outfits. My hubby has an aversion to polka dots so I don’t wear them. Plus, it makes me look childish but something about your outfit is very sophisticated. Must be the crisp blazer!

    Mr. AN is good with the camera! You look very relaxed here guess coz of the special man behind the camera and you didnt have to worry about settings and stuff ;-) Love the white blazer!

    Hello! Would you recommend scrunching of blazer sleeves for petites? I recently bought this nice blazer but its sleeves are quite longer than I want them to be.

    I know I have said this before…but the pearl bracelets with that leather watch are stunning together!! And I especially love the last two outfit shots! :)

    I just caught up on your blog…loved your MadMen post! That sounds like a fun night…your man with you for the first time and meeting other ladies from blogs!
