Polka Dots & Floral

I've stated on several occasions I'm learning how to wear patterns and mix them. An easy way is with this polka dot blazer and floral print shoe. Small subtle patterns, one being a neutral (navy polka dots on white) and the floral is more eye catching. Baby steps.

Plus with all the sales going on now it's a great time to invest in some great pieces like fun or basic blazers, shoes, jewelry, handbags....whatever you need or want.

I was heading out with the whole family and wanted to get a few pictures. I forgot to roll up one sleeve.  It is driving me crazy.

Because the blazer is very neutral I wanted to wear that ever popular "statement" necklace and opted for some colour. This "Tiffany Blue" necklace from Cocoa Jewelry was a perfect choice. Nancy (owner and designer of Cocoa Jewelry) has let me know that she is having an on-line sale, 40% off everything. The coupon code is 40%off.  Happy shopping!! Just an FYI this necklace is a Target exclusive and you won't find it on-line...but I'm sure you can find something else. The latest collection is available at Shopper's Drug Mart stores and I posted some pictures on my Instagram account. You can find me @ivagrbesic.
