Copycats Friday is one of my favorite days of the whole month!  It’s when I try to branch out of my usual style and try something different.  This month I’m channeling the ever-stylish and sometimes a little out-there Blair from Atlantic-Pacific.

Her double polka dot look has been on my mind ever since I found myself in possession of both a polka dot sweater and a polka dot blouse.  I love the juxtaposition of the two different  background colors and polka dot sizes in the original look.  I also love her shoes but, sadly, I didn’t have any strappy closed toe heels to wear today.

I even searched my neighborhood for some stairs so I could copy her pose.  This is the best I could do.

All told, I LOVE the way this outfit turned out even if it’s a bit more casual than I would wear to the office.  Still, for a Friday when I have no meetings and the boss is out?  I’ll break out the double polka dots.

Would you wear either of our outfits?

      The original look is awesome but I think the more muted color palate is probably more accessible to people. Either way, it’s a fun way to think outside of the box!

    I like the look but don’t think I could pull it off.
    I am in love with those shoes though.. I don’t really ever wear heels like that but the link you posted is $23.60 with free shipping! How can I say no to that? I used to have gray flats that I loved but I wore them so much I killed them and haven’t found a replacement yet.

    Very artsy! I would never have thought to mix polka-dots, very creative! I’m a little scared to wear polka dots myself but the outfit looks great on you!

        Honestly? Because when I was growing up, someone made a comment on how the polka dots reminded them of having measles! So I’ve shied away from polka dots ever since! Irrational, I know. But funny how these things stay with you over the years…

    I love the double polkadot look! I feel like I don’t have anything polkadotted, but I know I have one or two things. Just not a blouse and a sweater, haha. But if I did, I’d totally wear something like this. I do think I like your version better… the grey and white with the black and white. More my style, I think, that the other colors.

            LOL something tells me I shouldn’t go near scarves either… but… I really want a plaid one. And a polka dot one. GRRR! It’s cash only Sunday, right? That’s probably a good thing… though I’ll have to remember to actually get cash haha.

    I agree with everyone, I really like the muted color tones and the coordinating polka dots, it’s very wearable! (And I love how those pretty gray shoes work with the sweater, that little details really seems to pull everything together.) The wrap bracelets are the perfect accessories, you are really getting your money’s worth out of those!

    Oooh I love the double polka dots! I’ve been mixing stripes lately. I would try dots but I don’t think I own much that is polka dotted.
