This weekend I went to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with three of my friends (details in a future post). While there I popped into a White House Black Market just to check out their fall collection. I found a black leather skirt that was almost perfection – if I were taller and had less of a booty/mama pooch I would have grabbed it. Not a full skirt, not a pencil, nice waistband, soft buttery leather, and POCKETS!  If you are taller than I and either less curvy or more of a pear shape, you too may find this skirt to be awesome. Well the salesperson grabbed me this blouse to try with the skirt and I totally fell in love.

I am not one for a lot of prints, but I feel polka-dots are classic. Being sleeveless means it can work now in the dog days of summer, but can also look smart come fall and winter with a cardigan or jacket. The bow adds interest and showcases a popular trend for fall. I know it will work with so many pieces I already have, like this skirt. I also like that it has a curved hemline – I think it would look cute untucked with jeans and high-heeled booties for a more casual look.

    I love the combo of polka dotted top and mustard yellow pencil skirt!  This is a timeless look I never tire of.

    Thanks Kristen! I was so hesitant to purchase yellow but now I want to pair it with everything!

    I love the black, white, and yellow together. I love White House/Black Market, but alas can not fit in their clothing yet. Maybe someday. Anyway, you look very pretty! It seems like you had a great weekend as well.

    Thanks Cynthia. And you give me hope… maybe there will be some boots in my future!

    You look fantastic in that combo – and I’d just like to say that I think that even your ankles are looking slimmer lately! You can really tell that you’ve lost weight and are firming things up.

    Yes! to polka dots. This blouse is such a winner.

    Such a classic blouse, and I LOVE IT with the yellow skirt.  One of my favorite color combos.  Very chic today!

    I’m loving that top!  They do the best polka dot pieces at WHBM!!
