Outfit: Polka Dot and Python

April 9, 2012

Another Monday, another outfit here at The Average Girl’s Guide. By the looks of this outfit you’d never know that I have been addicted to color lately. Pink denim? It doesn’t leave my legs during the weekend (a visit to my Instragram feed will tell you that!), however I just bought these MIA heels via 6pm.com and felt compelled to pair them with a work appropriate look (though I also adore them with the previously mentioned pink denim). Mixing patterns is so “in” right now — I have a striped top + floral skirt that I must photograph for you — and this look is another pattern-mixing option. Staying with the same color palette and pulling in a pattern on an accessory makes it a little easier to ease your way into the trend.

blouse: old navy (winter 2011) / pants: h&m (march 2012) / heels: MIA “glee” via 6pm.com (March 2012) / necklace: forever 21; similar (March 2012) / gold bracelet: derng via etsy (April 2012)

Psssstt: TAGG’s included in this week’s links of the week round-up by International Fashion Bloggers (IFB). This list is always a must read for me to catch up on some of the best blogreads of the week so I’m honored to be included.

    Love this look, Alyson - that polka dot top is adorable on you & the braids in your hair are perfect!! :)

      Thank you!! I really need to do the braid more often.

  • RealGirlGlam

    Cute look! Popping a print in a shoe is definitely an easy way to mix. Love your braids too!

    • AvgGirlsGuide

      Totally agree! Less pressure than major pattern pairings.

    Cute!! I like the heels - I really like 6pm.com! You can get great buys there. I’ve always thought that the website name was a bit weird but regardless, good prices. 
    I like the necklace, too!

    1. I’m so excited that you’re expanding the site (I’m in the middle of a re-design myself and I CANNOT wait for it to finally go live) 2. So sad I’m not going to make Blogger Blitz - it sounds like such fun and literally down the street from me! Boo. 3. I love your little braids, I used to wear my hair like this all the time and I think I need to bring it back. 

    • AvgGirlsGuide

      You are?? SO excited… I love your site now so can’t wait to see what you’re doing with it. As for Blogger Blitz not sure I can attend either (it’s sooo far and we have friends in town that weekend) so we will just have to find another time to meet up! And, 3: you totally do. The braid thing is so convenient!

    The dots with the python is fabulous.  Love the pop of color in the necklace too!  You look great.

      You are so sweet to say so. Really happy with how they pair so well.

    I love this outfit- the polka dots are adorable. I haven’t been able to find any that I like- but this top is darling, and the shoes are fabulous! 

    • AvgGirlsGuide

      Thank you. This is ON and I’ve seen a few at H&M. Do you have one in your area? I got another one with a black base + white polka dots a month or so ago. Good luck!

    I am noticing a lot of braids lately. I’m going to have to try this.

    I LOVE polka dots with animal/snake print. Those shoes look really similar to the Shoemint AND Target pairs that I have an eye on. :) This looks great and is a fun way to sass up a work look. Your braid is darling too!

    love black and white…throw in polka dots and then you really have my eye!  Old Navy really has the best blouses sometimes..sad to have missed that one..it is great and so versatile!  Happy week to you. C

    Love this look!  The polka dots look great with the snakeskin pumps.  I almost purchased them but was worried they were too high for my taste.  Really love your hair this way too!

  • Grace Atwood

    Adorable!  Love the polka dots.
