WIW: Polka Dots Galore

Gonna be another hot day today (whoo hoo!) so today's outfit started with a skirt. I've paired my charcoal grey pencil skirt with my red/white polka dot silk vintage jacket and then added even more polka dots with my red/white pumps. I'm wearing my vintage cream croc handbag with bamboo handle and my Gucci watch for jewelry. And of course, a swipe of my favourite red lipstick!

I feel happy in this outfit but what do you think? How are the proportions and the combination to your eye? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket: vintage
Skirt: Cleo Petites (thrifted)
Shoes: Aerosoles
Handbag: vintage
Watch: Gucci (thrifted)

    That would be a cheery Monday sight at work! I love the polka dots alternated with the plain skirt, and the lovely smile is the capper.

    I think I have a new favorite =) This is just amazing on you!!! The proportions and combo is perfect to me. That jacket is so awesome! I can't believe it's vintage.

    Super Fab this morning!

    No wonder you feel happy, because you look amazing! In fact, I'm sure everyone who sees you today will feel a little happier, too! :)

    This type of matchy-matchy is so on trend!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Thanks ladies - I should try and figure out what the CPW is on this jacket by now - I only paid $28 for it and have worn it quite a few times already.

    Angie - so on trend with matchy-matchy and I didn't even know it! (lol)

    Pure Proportions Perfection, I would say! I love this on you, and the fact that you paired the red with a grey skirt (instead of black or white). Very sophisticated, and I love it!!!

    Now this is the way to wear red and white polkadots...no Minnie Mouse in sight

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    Matchy matchy red polka dots...I am in heaven! You look spectacular! I'm just about to post my own polka dot outfit, so we are polka dot sisters today!

    How darling that the jacket and shoes are almost the same! The colors look so fab with the gray pencil skirt! This is gorgeous on you!!

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    So much love! The matching patterns are too cool.

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous! This is such a fab Shannon outfit.

  • ManidipaM replied 7 years ago

    Actually, Minnie Mouse should want to grow up to be you! LOVE those shoes and the jacket so very much! The grown-up grey and your silver-tipped hair are the perfect foils.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Thank you Claire, Joy, Natalie, Meredith, Rae, Diana and Manidipa!

    Natalie - shout out to my polka dot triplet (you, me and MaryK)!

    Joy - glad to see there's no Minnie Mouse in sight! She's not quite the fashion icon I'd like to emulate (lol)!

    It was love at first sight for me and this jacket, so I really adore this look! Fabtastic!
