Look of the Day: Pop It, Lock It, Polka-Dot-It

Tonight my Mom took Casey, and I out for Casey's birthday. SO FUN! We went to Flemmings for their 5 for 6 to 7 Happy hour. Really this Happy Hour is AMAZING! If you have a Flemmings by you, you need to check it out.
I have been waiting to rock stripes and polka dots since the whole mixed pattern trend started, and today I finally gave it a go. Let me just say, for spending less then $20.00 on this outfit I was thoroughly impressed. The skirt was from Forever 21 and was just under $7.00, my $9.00 shirt was from H&M , and my Nine West shoes are over 4 years old. This mix of pairing not so wallet breaking pieces together had a huge effect!

Sometimes old shoes are the best.
My headband was given to me from my Mom for Easter, H&M top (similar at F21 and Kolhs), Forever 21 skirt (similar ASOS , F21 and Vs Pink) old Nine West Shoes.
The Flemmings staff sent Casey home with a very nice Birthday treat! SO cute!
Almost as sweet as my mom footing the bill and DDing for us! XoXo

Thank you Mom for the fabulous dinner, drinks and company!
