It seems I'm channeling my inner Minnie Mouse in this outfit. I thrifted this top last summer and have only worn it maybe twice--I think mostly out of fear of coming off as too kitschy or youthful. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE polka dots (they're my favorite next to stripes), but too much of them, especially in a predictable color, can sometimes be too playful. In any case, I think I struck a good balance in this casual outfit by adding a more modern cardigan and some simple blue jeans, rolled up as ankle pants. Because the top is so busy, I didn't attempt to pattern mix with anything else (but you better believe I considered it!). I would love to experiment by pairing this top with other unconventional colors, like teal. What do you think?
