Polka Dot “It” Sweater, Take Two {WIWS}

Here we are, Palm Sunday.  Before reading this, I hope you’ve read Rosie’s Lenten reflection over at FL&P, gone to Mass, said your prayers, etc., because I’ve got nothing but frivolity for you here.  This is what I wore today:


I had an “Aha!” moment this week.  I”m sure y’all read the Dressing For Your Body Type series Emily at FL&P did a few weeks ago.  I read it and smiled and nodded my head.  It all makes sense, right?  Well, understanding the theory and putting into practice are two different things.

Earlier this week I was wondering how I could reproduce this outfit:

And then I realized: look how bulky the cardigan is around this lady’s waist!  She practically has rolls!  You don’t notice it at first because she’s a size 0, 18 year-old fashion model, but this sort of thing would not do me any favors.

Hence I went for this look instead:

Ta da!

No Gucci scarf around my bag but oh well.

In other news, I’ll do my usual Meal Plan Monday post and then take a break from blogging the rest of the week.  Have a blessed Holy Week.

  1. I also keep on my computer images of outfits I like to reproduce 🙂 You look lovely in the outfit, the style suits you. And I like the little fashionista beside you!

  2. Your “AHA!” moment turned into a FAB outift! You really nailed it and look SO good. The color of the sweater is what caught my eye, I love the cheery pop of color 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing it!

  3. I am a sucker for polka dots. They look great on you, and I loved seeing how you took a fashion inspiration photo and made your own interpretation the outfit for yourself.

  4. My favorite WIWS, for real. Also, I love your little girl off to the side in all the shots, so adorable.
