Dots and bows

Polka dots are really cute on their own, but add some bows to the mix and I'm completely smitten. That is how I felt about this top anyway, when I spotted at TJMaxx as part of my reckless shopping trip. It was $15, and chiffon tops with cute prints seem to be pretty trendy now.
Dots and Bows
So for Everybody, Everywhere, here are my polka dots with a little twist. 
Dots and Bows
I'd planned on wearing a skirt, but wasn't in the mood. Strange, I know. It's just this in-between seasons weather. In my mind, it should be spring, but in reality it is not, which makes me wish I could just spend the day in fleece and flannel and hibernate until the good weather gets here.

Also, today was really frustrating. I got next to nothing done because my computer has decided it does not want to connect to the wireless network. It just keeps saying the password is incorrect, which it isn't, and it has worked perfectly for last two years, so what changed today? It was working one minute, and then suddenly stopped. I've been searching Apple's support forums for a fix, and none of the suggestions have worked. I need help.

That pattern is really cute. Dots plus bows beats dots alone any day.

Terri said...

Can't offer any insight into the computer problems, but I really like this look. You have a different sort of dot and I so badly want to be able to wear my hair in a braid.

I can't believe that top was such a deal - it's so cute! I had something sort of similar happen with my wifi this summer - I basically tried a whole bunch of different things (turning off my airport and then turning it on again, reconfiguring all my network settings, etc.) and one of them worked.

God, you ALWAYS look amazing. I love that detail shot of your bag strap! The leather is such a beautiful color. Sorry to hear that you're having problems with your computer. I HATE computer issues. I wish I could help you, but I don't know anything about their internal workings! :(

I love the black with the tan. That blouse is so pretty! It makes me want a sheer print top!
I know nothing about Macs, but good luck with the problem!

Rachel said...

Wow, it all looks lovely! The print on your blouse really is fantastic!

Shey said...

Look at you with your cute bag! Love the pretty bows+polka dotts, so different indeed.

Anne said...

I've had some wireless issues before, and it was because I needed a WPA instead of the password. I don't know why it'd change all of a sudden, but maybe check into that?

Cute top! And I hear you on transitional weather. Or I would if we could get back above freezing :)

Kirstin@CrimsonRosella said...

Wow, such gorgeous brown leather pieces in your outfit. That necklace is too cute with the blouse too!

Mimi said...

I once spent three days without email because google kept telling me I had the wrong password and then they wouldn't let me change it because the security blocked me from my own account. Then I realized I had been typing in my own password incorrectly. Duuuuhhhh.

I love this flowy top on you. You usually wear more fitted things and I really like this look on you too!

did someone say chiffon top? have mercy i am in love with this outfit. look at the swooshy bows and polka dots. oh help me. coupled with that bag and those boots i'm going down for the count. 3-2-1.

You've never shopped at Zara - oh you will my dear!

Ali said...

Your hair is so adorable like that! You look like Pocahontas, tehe. :D I love the cognac colors of your boots and bag and I envy your ability to wear the pants.

Oh no! I hope your password decides to work soon. :( That's dumb. The same thing happened to me on a website and then it later worked on a different day. :P Humm. Goodluck!

Melanie said...

GORGEOUS. And it's final. I'm getting those boots.

Daniela said...

I LOVE this look. My kinds of look, all the way. Super cute and somewhat casual but still really chic. You find the greatest things at Tjmaxx - next time you're in Boston you need to school me on how to shop (in that mess) and find such great pieces. (I want that top!!)

Marta said...

Gorgeous outfit. That color of your boots and bag (cognac?) is my fave when it comes to leather. I hope you get your wireless working soon! How frustrating.
