DD's Style File - Polka Dots & Leopard

I didn't really have any major objectives with this outfit...basically I was tired, but obviously didn't want to look it.

I grabbed this sweater a couple weeks ago on a random walk through the mall. Loved the softness of the fabric, ah-dored the buttons down the sleeves and the milky creamy color. Didn't so much love how it hugged my midsection. However it was too late though, since I had already snatched off the tag...

I didn't want an entirely neutral palette, so I tossed on red pants instead of black. My favorite leopard pumps play like a neutral for me, so when I stood in the mirror for one final look, I felt...umm..incomplete. No necklace seemed to work or give me quite the finishing touch I was searching for, then I remembered this scarf from a winter purchase that's been tucked away in the collection.
Cream button sleeve sweater - Bisou Bisou
Red ankle pant - The Limited
Leopard pumps - Guess
Yellow dot scarf - The Limited
Sunnies - Nine West

And voila! I felt totally pulled together and not overly accessorized. And the final look has a smidge of the 1950's, which I liked too.
