Outfit Under $100 Stripes and Polka Dots

The weather is finally getting warm enough that tight wearing is becoming unnecessary, but before retiring them for the summer months, I simply had to pair my dot tights with my striped mini skirt.

Everything else is pretty neutral, to let the patterns have their due, and the addition of the yellow scarf was important because I do love color, and it is spring after all!

Weird side bar - when I was leaving work for the day and walking to the car, someone drove by me and shouted "You are beautiful - want a ride?!" And yes, it was a creepy person. So I said nothing and got into the car as quickly as possible.

Striped Mini skirt - NY&Co. $16.47
Black Blazer - Old Navy $40
Black Cammi - Forever 21 $2.50
Yellow Scarf - Scarf World $8.35
Black T-Straps - Amazon $20 (or $30, depending on size)
Dot Tights - Ebay $6.75 (These have been at both F21 and H&M, but you know I can't find them online there...)

Total: $94.07 (or $104.07)

I've haven't been doing very many outfits under $100 -- which is something I had originally wanted to do regularly - at least monthly!

What do you think - Do you like them? Should I get on the ball and start doing them more often?


  1. You do look beautiful! Im saying that in a totally uncreepy way ;)


  2. I love your OU100 posts, but they make me want to spend money, lol!! Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog btw!


  3. I love that mix of patterns! I wish it wasn't too warm to wear tights, it seems like we just skipped spring altogether. That was creepy of course they are rights but we like getting those comments from nice people not from creepy ones! I really like the pop of color from your scarf. =)

  4. i like em! plus you look fabulous--the stripes with polka dotted tights was inspired!

  5. Love the stripes + polka dots together!

  6. Love stripes and polka dots together!:D Yellow is a good pop of color in this outfit!:D

    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  7. Wow, this outfit is sooo great. I so love the skirt and the polka dot tights

  8. I like how you're recreating your look with polyvore. Very cool. And those tights are amazing. I really need to get a pair for next season.

  10. I love how you added the yellow. Pops of color are always good!!

  11. Oh. Great post. It's surprisingly difficult to put together a full outfit for under $100 - especially an outfit with layers.

    Now that summer was so long ago, I will have to get use to not wearing tights. It was funny, I was about to go out the other day bare legged, and I felt so naked and exposed.


  12. You look soooo pretty lady! Love the sunny yellow!

  13. i never thought of mixing stripes and polka dots... but you worked it right!


  14. i love how you paired the outfit, you look so pretty! inexpensive but the ensemble is still so stylish. you have such cool ideas on the blog- totally following it! :)


  15. Oh, I love the shoes -- where do you live that you still need tights? I'm curious, since I'm moving to Northern climes in a month!


  16. love the scarf. the color looks so pretty. :)

  17. Well, you are beautiful. I'd offer you a ride too. ;-)

    I love these posts. I hate when magazines cite anything under $500 a "deal." Give me a break!

  18. I love the stripes with the polka dots!! so chic!
