2013 Week 14: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

So just the other day I thought I'd be a little cheeky and tease everyone following on Instagram and Facebook with sneak style post pic. All anyone saw was this, and all I said was it was a spots upon spots sort of day. 

Everyone seemed to go nuts over this pic, I figured either people like a lot of spots or a pregnant belly. Either way I decided pretty quickly that I should share this combo here.

Blue and Red Spot Sweater - op shopped
White Under Singlet - is actually a Breastfeeding singlet the wonders of a bra and singlet in one, was a retail buy long ago
Red and White 80's Polka Dot Skirt - gifted
Blue Ballet Flats - retail
Brooch - was converted to a brooch by me
Green Beads - op shopped

Onto other outfits and other matters, one of my minds burning questions this week has been what will I wear to wow the crowds at our first market this coming Saturday. Weather, comfort, style and a possibly moody pregnant episode of that looked good yesterday but not today might come over me. So some forethought and planning ahead is in action, and this is a potential contender for the weekend.

Green 1960's Ribbed Top - op shopped
1960's High Waisted Pants - Vintage Fair for $5
Blue Ballet Flats - retail
Necklace and Pendant - op shopped

A little story about these pants, I bought them on a whim out of a $5 suitcase at a vintage fair a few years ago now. When I got them home it was apparent they would never fit and a reconstruction was not going to be easy. But what do you know they ride up over my pregnant belly just fine. Sure they don't sweep the floor, but I often don't mind pants that are cropped at the ankle a little even with a little flare, so I'm happy and comfortable.

I'm loving both of these outfits. You know I'm a bit giddy over that green top, but I am adoring the spot combo. It's an unexpected combination that works really well. Xx

Yay spots are always fabulous, especially over a beautiful pregnant tummy. The trouser are just amazing and they look just great with the green top.

The spots really do have the fans this week. It's certainly a combo to play with more in different proportions I think and have more fun with.

Thanks V, I'm glad I never gave up the pants and kept them around for now whilst I'm pregnant.

I love all the spots! You can never have too many!
And so refreshing to see some dots in a world that seems dominated by stripes!
