Getting Graphic


Polka dots, stripes & edgepaint, Oh my! I wen't graphic in todays look by pairing black & white prints with a novelty blouse and a little bit of lucite! Surprisingly, there's no color in sight, but I did brighten things up with my signature red lip!

My OOTD:
Coat: Forever 21 Striped Trench coat (obsessed with this one, or in navy here)
Shoes: Kate Spade Polka Dot Karolina Pumps (old, love these)
Skort: Black Zara Skort (similar here & here, plus fun colors here)
Bag: Kate Spade Summer House Robby Bag (old, but available via ebay)
I am so obsessed with Joe Fresh right now! I completely fell in love with this top when I spotted it in stores a few weeks ago. They also had a trench version which I adored… but couldn't afford (I maxed out my clothing budget for the month, oops!). Anyways I have been loosing sleep over it ever since and  of course it's sold out now, boo! Oh well, I still love Joe Fresh - great prices and great quality, but they always have something fun in store and their employees (at least at my lower 5th location) are amazing!
