What I wore today: 05/03/2012 (Double Dots)

Double dots outfit: polkadot skirt from J. Crew Factory, polkadot top from H&M, thrifted belt, thrifted espadrilles, Anne Boleyn necklace made by me

Technically, I guess this should be called "Triple Dots" since the laces in my shoes have tiny dots on them as well (closeup image here), but the main focus of this outfit was my idea to pair these two navy and white polkadot pieces with each other. I love that one is the inversion of the other and that the dots aren't the same size. And yet, all day long, I had people ask me if it was a dress. Even Ryan thought it was at first, and he's used to my crazy pattern mixing.

That's what just so great about mixing patterns that have the same color story; the result is quirky but still seems to make since. As for the polkadot laces in my shoes, that was probably overkill. But it's warm weather again, and, since I thrifted them in December I've only had one other opportunity to wear them, so they demanded to come out. I couldn't tell them no. They were making puppy-dog eyes at me. 

Oh, also, the necklace. I made it for an Anne Boleyn Halloween costume a few years back. Google Anne Boleyn and you'll find several portraits of her wearing one just like it (well, mine is made from Sculpey, but otherwise they're identical). You might also have seen it in The Other Boleyn Girl. Since my last name also starts with a B, I see no reason not to wear it in my everyday life.
