Everybody, Everywear: Polka Dots

shirt: tucker for target, dress: nine west, shoes: yard sale

I've strayed slightly from the 30 for 30 challenge today to participate in Everybody, Everywear.  I love this Tucker for Target polka-dot shirt but it has a really weird shape to it and it's a challenge to style.  For me, it pretty much only works under things, which is fine because the bow collar looks cute poking out over a plain dress or sweater. 

Did all the other 30 for 30 girls finish the challenge?  I have two days left and I can't wait.  First stop, TJ Max.  Ha.  And then I will be reassessing my closet and doing a spring cleaning.  I'm so lucky to live in a place that has true seasons.  It's fun pulling out clothes you haven't seen in 6 months and getting excited all over again about them!

Leave me a link to your blog if you're doing Everybody, everywear.  I want to see your polka-dots!


  1. I love how you paired the orange in the shirt with the blue belt! It's a fabulous color combination. And you're right! The bow looks awesome over another piece.

    I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I'm only on outfit 21! And I will most definitely stop by TJ Maxx as well! It's such an awesome place!


  2. I think yours is my favorite look I've seen so far on EBEW! This is so pretty. I love the color combination. I don't know that I would have thought to bring those two colors together, but it looks so nice! And that dress is such a beautiful shape! I just love it all!

  3. Love your EBEW polka dot shirt! Looks fab with the dress and the belt was a fabulous way to pop the outfit! Cute post!


  4. The orange with the teal? belt is a unexpected and wonderful combo! I'm glad you slipped out of 30 for 30 mode to show us this! And while I don't own the shirt, I think I would totally agree with your assessment to layer it under things. It is a nice accent piece.

    Thanks for joining us at EBEW today!

  5. cute :) I like how you matched the orange in the shirt to your shoes :) I have an idea, it could be weird... what if you layerd your green dress, the one in the same color as the belt under this jumper? hmmmm I dunno ... that's my idea. :D

  6. Sigh...I totally missed the boat on that shirt. Soooo Cute!


  7. I'm so in love with this outfit, I think you were one of the best dressed on the everybody, everywerar website. I especially love the shoes, I can't believe you found them at a yard sale.

    Now following you!

    You look so CUTE!! That blouse will always be the one that got away for me. Hopefully Target does a comeback with this blouse from Tucker.

  11. The color combination of the bright coral dots and the turquoise belt is absolutely stunning, especially when worn with a neutral dress. I am in awe of your color mixing. Such a fun outfit! I participated in the challenge as well!
