polka dots

Bright stripes and polka dots are just a cool look  this 2013 spring/summer season. I love stripes, never tire of them. Here’s a fun spring or summer look in bright pink.

How about accessorizing your outfit with a striped scarf and a polka dot Brahmin bag? Add a  blazer and this outfit becomes a versatile set. You can always dress it up with a nice pair of trousers. I’m comfortable going almost anywhere in jeans!

Have you started adding  color to your wardrobe? When I add a splash of bright, even on a chilly spring day, it just brightens (pun intended) my mood!


Polka dots and stripes still make a fun statement for the 2012 fall fashion scene. Add a studded handbag and you’ve got a great look. Studs are accenting jackets, pants, accessories and shoes this season,  bringing back the punk/biker retro look of  the 70s and 80s. In 1974 a favorite outfit of mine had studs on the pant seam and matching jacket… it was very cool! Fashion always seems to recycle, incorporating a modern, updated take. Here are a couple of outfits with studded accessories.

Yes – I’m definitely loving this Nine West studded handbag. The plum colored tights coordinate nicely with the dark gold striped Madewell skirt and H&M mittens.

Each of these outfits has a unique flair; it’s a draw as to which is my favorite.  But, I’m leaning toward the second… I really love those tights, and the grey sweater rocks!

So, I’d love to hear from you. Which outfit would you wear? Are you wearing any of the great colorful choices in opaque tights this fall?
