Online Layers

So, I wore this yesterday in the sun shining Texas warmth and today it's back to almost freezing. I get it. Yes, so many of you ladies have been braving the snow, ice and frigid temps, but a girl from Texas doesn't know how to deal. One day we can tan on a trampoline and the next we are buried in scarves, coats and beanies. What gives?

Forever 21 Dress (option here and here) // Joe Fresh Polka Dot Top (option here and here) // Forever 21 Ankle Boots (option here and here) // Sam Moon Bag (option here and here) // LookBook  Store Necklace c/o // Target Belt // Sweet Clover Bracelet c/o // Michael Kors Watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Forever 21 Spade Earrings (option) // Forever 21 Aviators (option)

I will take my sun basking winter days as they come. I am by no means complaining about not having to wear tights.

I have had this chambray dress and polka dot oxford for awhile now, why I haven't paired them together is beyond me. Thank you, J.Crew Factory for the inspiration; window shopping online, not buying a single thing and gaining so much blog/style inspiration. That is where it's at...taking things I already own and making them new.

And for one hot second can we talk about the Grammy's last night? I haven't tweeted so much in my entire life. Go, T-Swift for looking gorg and having the best performance of the night (in my opinion), boo for Daft Punk winning so many awards, holy moly Miranda, LL Cool J's still got it & smokin', slow down on the Botox, Madonna, P!ink is a bad ass, Katy Perry nailed it, Kasey Mugraves lighted boots, Beyonce needs put that weave back in, Steven Tyler still looks like a long-lost gypsy auntie, Jordan Catalano will always have my heart and old school country is where it's at (Willie and Merle) least in my neck of the woods. I thought this was the best show in years.

Happy Monday. It's a busy one...3rd grade half-year awards and kindergarten field trip...can I clone  myself? Please?!

P.S. I am sharing a few personal tips, advice and experiences when it come to blogging. Thank you, Zack for featuring me today On More From Your Blog. Hope you guys find it helpful.

I love the polka dot shirt layered under the chambray and the red handbag top it off perfectly.

Cute combo! I am still watching the Grammys here on the West coast. Loved Pink's performance - she's playing her on Wednesday and I am sending text like crazy between my gf to see if we can go to the concert.

Cute polka dot and chambray combo! I had to DVR to Grammys, but thanks for the preview. :D Have fun on the field trip... I'm sure those little ones are going to be so excited!

Chelsea Oliver said...

This look is too cute! At least the weather up here is consistently cold, I wouldn't do too well with the back and forth business you're dealing with. And live-tweeting the Grammy's was a crazy mess for me last night haha! Pretty good show overall.


Unknown said...

Yes to all of that! Lol I loved watching this year's show :)

And loving those polka dots and that bag!

Rachelle ( said...

Love this denim dress so cute, but yes I loved watching the Grammy's this year my fave performance were the Queen of course and Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons. B Have a good day.

Charming Lucy said...

Love this combo of polka dots with denim! And the red pop is perfect. We are not having bare legs here anytime soon - the temp is negative 15 today. Hurry spring!! Susan

I don't like the new Daft Punk. Ugh. I know what you mean about the bipolar weather. We get about the same stuff you do. Cute look! Love the polka dots under this dress.

YAY for not having to wear tights! Score! Our weather has been so beautiful lately, too! Like, hot. I don't get it, but I'll take it! ;)

As for the Grammys- I looooved T Swift's performance- it was gorgeous. And Carol King and Sara Bareilles?! BEAUTIFUL. Willie Nelson still has it, which is incredible because he's olddddd haha ;)

I love the polka dot top! It's funny because when I first saw this outfit I immediately thought of J.Crew. They do have an amazing store, definitely one of my favorites!

Helene in Between said...

rebeccalately said...

I didn't watch the Grammies, but I've been enjoying all the recaps and gifs :) I couldn't give up my Downton Abbey last night!

That looks super cute on you, but I could never pull it off! When I was younger I had a jean dress that my parents made me wear more often than I would have liked. I didn't think it looked that great on me!

TaraMixandMatch said...

This is one of the cutest examples of layering ever...and I love the addition of the red bag!

Because of Jackie said...

First of all, love the layers ad creativity, and I'm jealous of the tightness legs. It is freezing here! I didn't get a chance to watch the Grammy's and I only saw online pics and a little red carpet…but I agree about Madonna and the botox!

Nina Piccini said...

I was just wondering how i could wear my chambray dress in the winter time. I'm not certain if it's appropriate for my business casual office but maybe a weekend look - I love pairing it with an oxford underneath.

xo, Nina

Unknown said...

Chevron dresses are the best! I love how you styled yours with the shirt underneath!

ahhh this is SO Cute Shanna!
I love these pairings!

Janna Renee said...

I'm sooo sad that I missed the Grammy's! I keep hearing SUCH amazing things. Thanks for the blog tips and info, I'm checking it out now!
PS. How close are you to Dallas? We are going to drive through there on the way to Alabama!

Misty, Handbags + Handguns said...

I have to agree about Madonna. Her face did not look good.

Although here in California we don't get freezing and barely need scarfs, I get sick of the back and forth with the "cooler" and "warmer temps. Cute dress!

Kileen said...
