An oldie but a goodie

My wardrobe is currently failing to inspire me, I wish I was better at remixing things but I seem to create one outfit that I really like and continue to just keep recycling the same look. I am pretty sure that I have worn this dress (and possibly together with the cardigan) on my blog before but look at that cute red bow belt I have added and new shoes....ok so I need to work on the remixing. Feel free to tell me how you would wear this dress without a red cardy because thats the only way I seem to rock it. However this is one of my favourite outfits, polka dots and a pop of red have never let me down.

At the moment I seem to gravitate towards anything with dots, does anyone else go through phases like that? I seem to go through phases and never leave them as I am still obsessed with florals and stripes, so I will now just add polka dots to the list.

Today I stuck pretty well to my 30 day challenge but had 1 and a half diet cokes, caffeine is obviously a weakness I need to work on. I am going to go to bed and hopefully get up early to do washing and bake cookies for work, its been a bit hectic lately and I think people deserve a treat (plus I am loving freshly baked cookies at the moment and this seems like a good excuse to indulge.)

  1. I think the red cardi looks great with the dress. I love the belt, so cute. Ah yes, I go through MAJOR phases. One of them is polka dots too. Whenever something comes in at work with polka dots the girls know I'll love it.

  5. That belt is so cute, I have one thats almost identical. If the dress is navy I'd usually wear a white cardie with it.

  7. This outfit is perfect, why change it? :)
    I love the pops of red! Looks so good with your summer skin tone chicka!

    Just a thought, you could always wear your dress open like a cardi... hehe. Does it button all the way down?

    You are super cute! I think this every time I come here. You should know.

  10. try a white cardigan or even black works well with dark navy as well. or not even a cardigan, try a blazer! i love sweaters and cardigans as well, but sometimes it's fun to try something different.

    and i'm totally obsessed with those things at the moment too. but add combat boots and anything lisbeth salander-esque to that list. weird, right? haha

  11. Very cute! I have a black and white polka dot dress that I love, and I need to find a cardigan to go with it. We can't wear red at work though (gang color) so I'll have to come up with something else. Maybe yellow for spring :)

  14. Also going through a bit of a polka dot affair at the moment! :)

    I love this outfit combo. Navy + polkas + red is pretty much no-fail! I think if I wanted to mix the pieces with my wardrobe, I'd do the dress with leggings and killer red heels...or the dress with a cute button-up blazer. But, I feel like this outfit is adorable enough that no one you see on a regular basis will mind seeing it a few times a month! :)

  17. Why fix it if it 'aint broke? It's a fantastic outfit! :)

    I'm totally into polka dots too! But more so, I'm into stripes. Everything must be striped at the moment!
