It’s been a while since I trotted out the cobalt skinnies, and this outfit is definitely the most color I’ve worn in a while. The sweater was a bargain and a find, since it incorporates a few key brights as well as olive and black, two of my favorite neutrals. Further proof that prints can be fabulous bridging pieces!

Just a few more snowy outfits … hang in there. Of course, by the time I use them all up it might have snowed again.

My favorite and most-used outfit-building cheat is to grab a multi-colored scarf and pull out a few colors from its pattern. Here, that just meant burgundy and black, but the scarf unifies those two beautifully and adds a bit more color overall. This is a great practice for color pairing inspiration, too: Look at an existing pattern to see colors that a professional designer has grouped, and then re-create the grouping with your own garments!

Dressed for: Oh So Retro

Already Pretty outfit featuring orange cardigan, polka dot dress, mustard leather Radley London handbag, nude pumps, Corso Como Del

Anyone else feel like just about everything polka-dotted looks at least slightly retro? Even brand-new stuff in relatively contemporary shapes and cuts just makes me think 50s diners and Betty Boop when polka dots come into play. And not in a bad way – not at all! I love me some retro and repro as much as the next gal. Just strikes me as odd since plaids, stripes, and florals are easily as common but don’t feel as closely associated with a past era. Anyhoo, this cotton voile dress is a late summer favorite. Lightweight, comfy, and retro-cute.
