The Red Polka Dot Top

The Oasis Red Polka Dot Top Outfit

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe how quickly this week has gone by! It’s been crazy! First of all, I want to apologise for my hair in these photos, we shot them when a storm had come in and it was the first rain and wind we had had in weeks, which I welcomed with open arms, but I didn’t anticipate how much it would wreck my hair, ha ha. We actually spent four times as long trying to get these photos as every other second my top was blowing up, my hair was in my face… but there’s nothing like a challenge and I think they turned out ok by the shelter of the buildings.

For this outfit, I was actually excited about wearing jeans again! I chose to wear my Citizens of Humanity Rocket Crop Jeans in All Black as they make a great base for classic looks. I wanted to make it bright and fun though so I styled them with my Oasis Polka Dot Red Top, which I think is really pretty! I just ordered it online to try and it turned out to be wonderful. I added a little leg lengthening with my Schutz Rashne Sandals, and then gave it some edge with my Gucci GG Belt. I like how different this belt makes certain outfits, it really changes them up. I also chose my Valentino Lock Back in Ivory, and for the accessories chose my Mondaine Red Watch and a very special necklace.

I wanted a separate paragraph for this necklace as it’s unique and has a story. It was a present from the brand Stella & Dot for my birthday and it’s so cute! The peridot is for August, the L is my initial, the elephant is adorable, and it also has a little plate that is engraved with 30! The 30 tag is round the back of the necklace in these photos, but you can see it on my Instagram story highlights! I can’t thank Stella & Dot enough as it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to wear it much more often! Anyway, please do let me know what you think of the outfit in the comments below! Lorna xx.

What I Was Wearing:
Top – Oasis
Jeans – Citizens of Humanity
Belt – Gucci
Bag – Valentino
Shoes – Schutz
Watch – Mondaine
Necklace – Stella & Dot

    What a cute necklace! Such a sweet gift. I love that polka dot top on you too, and I’m glad you managed to get some great photos despite the weather troubles!

    Hope that your weekend is off to a nice start 🙂 I went to a big opshop sale this morning and picked up some bargains! 🙂

    Oh, I can totally relate to your excitement about wearing jeans again. 😀 I felt the same myself the one and only day in the past 4 weeks that I actually did so. LOL

    This is such a great look for you – I like everything about it. I think the white dots here are such an attractive design with the red background and a perfect combination to go with your lovely watch. I feel that there’s a lot of clever balance in this outfit. The watch and the top are one pair… then the cute necklace and the belt are another terrific match up (I love that you’ve come to appreciate the visual impact of belts more)… and finally the jeans and the shoes clearly belong together too. Very much a “head turner” of an outfit, I think. 🙂

      Oh I’m so glad you noticed! You do have a great eye for catching small details like that I’ve noticed, Steven 🙂 Glad they’re not going amiss! It is such a pretty top, I agree, it’s very striking! 😀

        Thank you… well I try to be observant anyway. 🙂 LOL I mean if you ever run a spot the difference competition I might stand a decent chance. 😉

    That top, at least to me, looks about three times more expensive than it really is. I am properly impressed.

    What a cute outfit you have put together. I really like your polka dots blouse. I think polka dots tops are a great way to wear this print because they’re easy to style. Lovely accessories as well…Beautiful necklace, watch, belt and bag.

    You look great!!!

    Hello Lorna
    Also happens to my hair when it rains or there is moisture, my hair is ruined, anyway, I also don’t give up and take pictures with it like that.
    I like your top and the way you paired it with the jeans, and the necklace is wonderful how lucky you are!!

      Thank you, Marisa! Yes, you’re right! It can be very difficult in that weather!

    Polka dots are so classic but I really like how you’ve mixed it up a bit with the red and off the shoulder style, great look!
    Have a lovely day 🙂
