Just Connect the Dots

Wearing – Top: Express | Shorts: JCPenny {old} | Shoes: Nordstrom | Necklace: Jane {old} | 
Ring: David Yurman | Bracelets: Olive + Piper, Monogram {old} | Watch: Von Maur
Sunglasses: Sunglass Hut

It's no secret that I love black and white patterns paired with bright accent pieces, but I doubled up on pattern with this look–black and white polka dots with striped shoes. You probably remember these shoes from this look, and don't worry, I'm still in love with them.

When getting ready for work, my outfit for the day usually starts with my shoes, and this day was no different. When I decided that I wanted to wear these striped beauties I immediately thought of wearing them with these bright shorts. The top was a last minute add, but I ended up loving this look. I finished the look off with a pink necklace originally purchased from Jane.com last summer and some sparkling accessories. Voila!
