I have long been a fan of polka dots, but I think this outfit really captures my polka fever. We’ve also been a little bit polka dot crazy at work, but I can’t tell you why just yet; it’s a secret! ;)

Speaking of work, I think my multicolored Timex Weekender SLip-Thru with a white strap goes pretty well with this outfit, yeah? Especially when I throw on my Yellow-So-Cute Coat from ModCloth. They don’t have it for sale anymore, but here’s a similar peacoat that’s a bit more suited to the season.

How perfect is this yellow bow belt? Hand’s down my favorite belt.

Oh and here’s me walking away from the super nice yellow car in our parking lot (no idea what kind), Dave chasing me with his iPhone and pretending to be the paparazzi. (We have fun!)

Favorite Summer Sandals + Flats Under $35 via @poorandpretty

Favorite Summer Sandals + Flats Under $35 via @poorandpretty

These Roxy sandals are my absolute favorite summer footwear, which is why they’re so well-worn. I bought them years ago, and they’ve lasted longer than any other pair of sandals I own. They’re comfortable and casual, but dressy enough to wear to work and nice events, too. Unfortunately, these aren’t available anymore, but I did find a few more sandals and flats to complement your summer wardrobe.

First, let’s talk about how awesome it is that jelly shoes are back! Yes!!! These are definitely my favorite style icon from the 90s.

Favorite Fall Footwear

favorite-fall-footwear

Boots one day, flats the next… I kind of love that the unpredictable Fall weather lets me show off my shoe collection. These are my go-to footwear picks for the season.

1. Ivory Romina Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu (similar). I absolutely do not subscribe to the don’t-wear-white-after-Labor-Day rule. According to Mental Floss, it was made up by a bunch of millionaires for no good reason anyway. So like Coco Chanel, I rock white (or ivory) whenever I want to, especially since I just bought these sweet Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu.

2. N.Y.L.A. boots in brown (similar). I bought these knee-highs from Ideeli after the holidays last year. The sandy brownish tan color goes with pretty much everything, but they look especially great over a pair of skinny jeans. If you’re looking for something similar, I’m a big fan of  these or these from Nectar Clothing.

3. Brown flats from Charlotte Russe. (similar). I snatched these babies up for $8 at Plato’s Closet in South Windsor a few years ago. I’ve worn them countless times, so I’m surprised they haven’t made it into an outfit post yet! I’ll have to change that. I found two very similar pairs via ModCloth: here and here.

4. Minnetonka Kilty Suede Moccasin in medium grey. I have been wearing these almost daily since I got them a few weeks ago. They’re so comfortable! I’ve heard mixed reviews on their sizing, so I ordered them from Zappos in case they didn’t fit (Zappos has a great return policy). I took a chance and went with my normal size 7 and they fit perfectly. I also want them in pink, dusty brown, peacock blue… okay, I want all the colors. And I recommend Minnetonka’s Cally slippers, too. Hands down, the most comfortable slippers ever.

5. Bellini Red vintage boots. I bought these from loveyvintage a few years ago, and they’ve been a favorite ever since. I folded down one of them to show off the faux fur lining — so comfortable and warm! The only downside is that the soles are starting to detach a bit, so I need to get them repaired. I looked around quite a bit online to find something comparable, but as these are vintage, it’s hard to find a similar pair today. I found these on ModCloth that were pretty close, minus the lining. They have a great vintage section, but I highly recommend perusing your local thrift shops and Etsy vintage stores.

Today’s Threads: Coach Tour Dress in Spearmint

coach-tour-dress-in-spearmint2-poorandpretty

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with The Coach Tour Dress from ModCloth. With so many different colors, there are so many ways to wear it! Plus, it has pockets — a coveted feature in a dress. So after owning just the houndstooth one for a year, I decided it needed a Spearmint sister.

I’ve styled it here with a few polka dot accessories (another obsession). The headband above I made by slipping that cute polka dot bow (which was part of the ribbon on a present I received a few years ago) onto a plain black headband.

I completed the look with multicolored polka dotted black tights and my studded Rampage flats.
