This morning my sweet, sweet husband, Jason, went to Wal-Mart to purchase a sd card for his camera so we could take better pictures for the blog. He is such a great guy! We have been packing all day and normally I wouldn't wear anything besides yoga pants and a t-shirt for such a task, but since I am now doing a daily outfit blog, I am kind of forced to wear real clothes from now on (well, at least long enough to take a picture).
This morning I got up, and in keeping with my polka dot theme for the week, I decided to wear my 'dalmation' sweater and hot pink shorts. Between packing boxes, and while we had good light outside, Jason and I accomplished today's pictures. I am still very swollen from my surgery so full length pictures just look awful, sorry!
My dog Rosie wanted to get in on the picture taking fun!
So here it is. I am wearing a lightweight cream sweater with black polka dots, hence the term 'dalmation' sweater. I purchased this Merona brand sweater this season at Target. It was $19.99. I love it because the dots on the sleeves are smaller than the dots on the rest of the sweater. The shorts were another purchase from the Gap outlet, and cost $14.99.
Brights shorts and shorts with patterns are super trendy right now. Check out what shorts Gap is currently selling by clicking here. Neon is also very trendy right now, but I am afraid the trend (like all trends) will fizzle very quickly. Neon is a hard color to pull off for most people. I like these shorts because they are bright pink, but NOT neon pink. I will totally be rocking these shorts for years to come!
As far as this sweater goes, you'll be seeing it A LOT during my 365 challenge. It is a staple in my wardrobe. I consider it a classic piece. It is classic for me because it has 3/4 length sleeves (love!), it is cream with black polka dots (classic polka dot color combo!) and because it is a basic sweater cut.
