My Style: Silver and Polka Dots in the City

Today’s outfit in DC: A white sweater with black polka dots over a silver top and silver pencil skirt (two of three pieces of a suit). I’m going to try to post my outfits here sometimes. I’m so into fashion—why not bring more of it here?

By the way, this week, I’m trying a vibrant yellow nail polish for the first time. It’s such a cheery shade and sort of unexpected.

My style takeaway today: Breaking up a formal suit with a light cardi and skinny belt can be fun. Have a great evening!

Top, skirt, and belt, Calvin Klein; cardigan, Merona (a.k.a. a Tar-jay score); clutch, vintage; pumps, Maripé; nail polish, Sally Hansen

  1. You look beautiful! Love the outfit and the tips. And the nails, I never would have imagined choosing that color but it looks good on- always helps to be a little daring. Thanks for the tips 🙂

    1. You’re so sweet–thank you! Really appreciate your note. I love bold colors, so I’m glad I found the yellow. 🙂

    1. Leslie, I enjoyed this pocadst! In my mid-late 20 s, I managed a retail career clothing store. I was 5’3 , weighed 105 lbs. (naturally, not because I tried), learned I was a winter and clothing was easy and fun to find. I’m now 48 years old, one beautiful daughter and one thyroid disorder later, I still can stretch to reach 5’3 but weigh 150 lbs. I carry most of my excess weight in my stomach and neck, and clothing is a puzzle to me. I love shopping for my daughter but find personal shopping discouraging. I have been trying to lose weight for the past 12 years and while I lose 10-15 pounds, it always is a struggle to keep those pounds off, and I find myself needing to lose the same pounds over and over again. I look forward to checking into your site and learning what works for my body now. And thank you, Sandra, for this entire series![]

      1. Sabiya, thank you for your comment! I hope you don’t give up on finding clothes that you love. Retailers and designers now offer lots of options–we just have to try a few things to find the best fit. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Tracey! Yellow can really be tricky. But I love that there are colors for everyone. 😉
