Happy polka dot day!

Polka Dots Challenge | Everybody, Everywear

Blazerless, breton stripeless me is finally taking part in an Everybody Everywear challenge: Happy polka dot day you all! :)


So I am finally venturing into university land. Or at least to the edge of it, although it was only extensive camera flare that kept me from leaving behind my bike and walking through those gates. The morning light was a bit much :) I'll show you more of these touristic haunts one day soon. Promise ;)
That said, I am pleased it is only after over 200 posts that I am adding a bit of gown to the town in my backgrounds. Cambridge is more than just colleges. I like walking on the grass :P

See that extensive list of prohibitions? No cycles, dogs, radios or picnics. Clare college seems like a barrel of laughs ;) Polka dots aren't listed though. Pfooh! Close call ;)



I have two polka dot blouses which I actually wear quite a lot although you wouldn't think it judging by this here blog :) Well, counting this post I've now featured each of them once. You can see my other dotty blouse here.



Have a dotty day!

beret: eBay
cardi: modcloth
polkadot blouse: ancient H&M
necklace: fair
skirt: ancient H&M
shoes: eBay
snood: DIY
coat: some supermarket

  1. Perfect polka dots! I love the color of the blouse on you and your shoes are fabulous. Thank goodness Clare College isn't banning polka dots or awesome shoes - especially as they appear to like to ban everything else!

  15. Wow, you always have the best outfit photo locations! The last couple have been amazing. I wish we had places like this where I live, you have inspired me to go outside of my backyard once the snow melts! I love your blue look, that coat and hat look great together.

    I would never have been admitted to Clare College. I love dogs, picnics, rock music, dancing, and making jokes (which probably aren't allowed, either).

    You look so pretty in blue. I say that every time you wear it, but still!

  19. You're lucky you can pull off the untucked blouse look. Most people look like slobs, you look effortless!

  20. Yay for spots! I feel like I was channeling that force in my last post - without even knowing!

    I love all those odd rules around colleges - so totally bizzare! In Australia we somehow inherited the building style and course structure - but kicked off the funny-hatted men and grass-related rules :)

  21. haha! no picnics is such a hilarious rule. i can just see a decrepit, crabby man insisting that no on eat and be merry on the college's lawn.

    I occasional think of taking part in that "everybody..." thing, but like you, I seem to lack most of the essentials!

    Looking good as usual!

  23. I LOVE all of your berets - so classic and French! I just want to be Amelie when I grow up...

    Lovely ensemble, as always. I find that I like many of my ancient H&M items a lot better than the stuff they're putting out these days.

  28. i like how you layered and mixed in different shades of blue! looks great

  29. Polka dots are a thrift store weakness of mine, anything and I mean anything that has dots on it--I can't help but buy that sucker up! Also, your beret wearing is making me want one so badly but I can never find them...one of these days :)

  30. I just love love love that blue coat! It allows for creative color mixing, which you do so expertly well- the array of blues in this outfit makes me smile (and that sign made me laugh!). Also, those shoes are wonderful!!! They add such fun to this (and any) look.
