Chilly Polka Dots

Okay the wind hit REALLY hard in this pic, I had to cover my one ear!

coat/shirt-J.Crew(similar here and here), dress-Le Tote, belt-Gap(more belts here), heels-Nine West(similar here), necklace-Banana Republic(similar here), bracelet-Michael Kors, watch-Nixon via Urban Outfitters 

It is COLD out there people so I kept my coat on for these shots, but the outwear added to the overall ladylike demeanor of this outfit. Whenever you pair a button-down under a sleeveless, jumper-like dress you run the risk of coming off "school girl" but, I think the sophisticated jewelry and belt pushed this to a chic place. The fact that these Mary Janes had quite a thin high heel also helped. A shorter, more square version would have come off as juvenile. 

Side note: the wind was playing havoc with my hair, which is kind of all over the place at the moment. In general my hair situation is a bit muddled, I need a cut, but I don't want to go super-short until it warms up. Also, I'm kind of toying around with the idea of letting it grow into a bob... We shall see.
