Reader Question: Polka Dot Shoes

Polka Dot Shoes 1
Polka Dot Shoes 2

Polka Dot Shoes 2 by freetobestacialee featuring old navy tees


My friend MaryAnn was having a hard time putting together outfits around these adorable shoes she picked up a few years ago in Vegas.  I wanted to keep the shoes the focal point of the outfit and I didn't want any other piece in the outfit to be competing with those shoes.  So I stuck with the very classic black and white for both outfits.  The first outfit is for casual day wear. She could wear this out to lunch with the girls, picking up her kids from school or running errands.  The second outfit is more for evening wear.  For both outfits I added that very popular statement necklace in red.  The pop of color against black & white works perfectly!  For the second outfit I added a stack of gold bracelets and a evening clutch that takes the outfit to a more sophisticated look.  So what do you think?  Do you have a style related question?  Feel free to contact me!

What I Wore: Floral & Stripes




Shirt: Old Navy, Skirt: Thrifted, Belt & Shoes: Target, Sunglasses: Dollar Tree, Purse: Billabong, Earrings: The Limited
 
This outfit came together when I cut out this picture of Jennifer Hudson from my Lucky magazine.  I have it hanging up in my office and as soon as I found this shirt I knew I had the outift!  I paired it with my brown wedges & a adorable fringe purse that transformed the outfit from classic to a little bit of hippy.  So what do you think?

The Good Style Fashion Show arrived on May 9th and was a big hit!  I can honestly tell you I was so  nervous and excited! My theme was Audrey Hepburn and the classic looks were just what I was going for!   My girls went on 2nd to last and we were all pumped up and I couldn't wait to see my hard work all finalized. My girls did such a great job!  Heading backstage to quickly switch in to their second outfit was not an easy task!   It was a dream come true to be a part of such a great event.  I will be posting part two next week but for now check out the other bloggers recaps!

What I Wore: Denim & Stripes






Dress &  Shoes: Target, Jean Jacket: Thrifted, Purse: JC Penney, Sunglasses: Dollar Tree, Bracelets: Forever 21 and thrifted
 
 
 
 
A maxi dress has been on my radar since last Summer when I stained my pretty blue dress with taco sauce.  That was a sad day.  This beautiful tan & coral maxi caught my eye at Target and it was just what I wanted!  I paired with my thrifted denim jacket, sandals & purse to put together a casual outfit.   What do you think of the maxi trend?

What I Wore: Magenta & Neutrals!








Top & Pants: Target, Sunglasses: Dollar Tree, Shoes: TJ Maxx, Purse: JC Penney, Bracelets: Forever 21 and thrifted
 
I have been drooling over these pants at Target and I finally bit the bullet and paid full price!  I can't wait to go back and hopefully pick up another color!  They are so comfortable and perfect for work & weekend wear!  And if you are wondering those are also new shoes, bag & shirt.  I have been wearing those adorable shoes with everything!  I love these shoes because they fill so many holes in my closet!  Do you have a item like that?  I would love to hear about it!
 
And isn't Eric becoming quite the photographer?  Sorry for the overload of photos but I couldn't choose just a few!

What I Wore: You will do better in Toledo!






Vest: Thrifted, Skirt: Old Navy, Shoes & Purse: Target, Bracelet: Gift, Necklace: c/o Poor Sparrow, Shirt: Jupmode via Makers Mart
 
I picked up this adorable shirt at Makers Mart last month!  I saw it someone wearing it on my instagram feed and I wanted it instantly!  If you follow the link to Jupmode it tells the story behind the shirt which made me want it even more! I enjoyed wearing this outfit because it is very comfortable but still put together enough for a date night out in downtown Toledo with Eric. 
 
How was your weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend!  We had some relaxing time doing yard work and taking a nap outside on the grass.  I also had my hair done which was 3 months over due!  It feels so good to have it done!  Eric finally choose his new bike and purchased it over the weekend.  He decided on a Harley and I can't wait to go riding this weekend!  Comment below to share what you did over the weekend and if you have a favorite comfy outfit!

What I Wore: Printed Top!


 


 
Tank: Old Navy, Jeans: TJ Maxx, Top: BCBG hand me down , Shoes: Target, Bracelets: Forever 21 & bracelets, Sunglasses: Dollar Tree
 
So I changed in to this outfit after work today.  We were going out for dinner and to look at Harley's for Eric.  I came downstairs and asked him what he thought of my "new" top and he asked if we were going to Mexico.  So I asked does that mean you don't like it?  He said he was still thinking about it.  So then when we took these photos he said I looked like a bird with wings.  All I know is I love this top given to me from Renee and I felt sassy wearing it!  Have a great weekend friends!
