Red and White Polka Dot Cardigan and GS Lillian Statement Necklace

POLKA DOT CARDIGAN - Anonymous Venice (exact)
RED TANK TOP - Target
OLIVE SKIRT - Forever 21
WORKMAN BOOTS - Forever 21
STATEMENT NECKLACE - GS Lillian
Almost 20 weeks pregnant!
My fabulous GS Lillian necklace (THANK YOU, SHELLY!!!)
Pigtails hands me a rock.
"Snuggle!"  It's something my girls say to me daily.  It means they want to cuddle on my bed and I love it (though sometimes it gets complicated when one asks to snuggle and the other one tries to get in on the action).  They each have different reasons for saying it to me.  For Pigtails, she says it because she wants my attention (translation: "Momma, stop blogging and hold me!").  For Princess Sparkles, it's her way of trying to get out of going to bed.  I'll tell her, "time for sleep" and she'll say, "but I want to snuggle with you!"  Of course, it works everytime.

Today I'm wearing my new polka dot cardi from Anonymous Venice.  My girlfriend, Fierce, gifted me with it (I love my friends!).  Whenever I wear red I seem to gravitate towards olive.  I know it's kinda  "Christmas-y" but I like it.  I'm also wearing a gorgeous necklace designed by Shelly at GS Lillian.  I'm obsessed with her pieces and bought a necklace and cuff.  When she accidentally sent me the wrong necklace (this turquoise and red one) she sent me the right piece and let me keep this one!  I couldn't believe her generosity and I'm loving this colorful piece! 

Also, I'm linking up to Silverstyle's "Trending Through The Decades: Polka Dots."  It's a really fun way to check out how people of different ages style this fabulous trend!  So if you have some polka dots you're dying to wear (or if you just wanna check out how others are styling them) then check out Silverstyle!

Anyway, I'm really trying to accessorize more.  There's something about a statement necklace that really makes an outfit and GS Lillian has some of the most beautiful stuff.  Shelly even has a "sample sale" where you can get some of her pieces for a serious steal ($20!).  Everytime I go there, I want to buy something.  It's kinda like when Princess Sparkles or Pigtails ask me to snuggle, I just can't help myself!

Cute, cute, cute! I love the red with the olive, I didn't think of Christmas until I read that, so don't you worry. The polka dot cardigan is ADORABLE. I'm not usually a cardigan kind of girl, but that is an exception. And that necklace is gorgeous! That was so sweet of her to let you keep it!

I love red and olive together - they're not Christmas-y at all to me. And I love this outfit. I can't decide which I like better, the cardigan or the necklace. You look fabulous.

Callie said...

I never thought about the possibility of red and olive together, but I really adore the combination! This is a wonderful outfit! I love the touch that the bold necklace and boots add. Talk about one chic Mommy. Those adorable little girls will have one amazing closet to raid as they get bigger. Have a wonderful weekened!

Your bump! It's adorable! I feel like I can't ever even see it when you take your pictures from straight on, so I was surprised to see it from the side. You're setting an awfully high standard for a cute pregnancy :)

I love the polka dots on the cardigan, and the turquoise necklace looks fantastic with the red.
