Mustard and Navy, with a Side of Kermit

I had a bad case of "I woke up and thought it was Thursday" today. 
Unfortunately not. However, I did feel rather dotty, from my head to my toes!

It was far too warm today to be wearing a wool cardigan, but yes, that's what I'm wearing. I was inspired by one of my coworkers last week, who wore a mustard blouse with a navy blue cardigan. I don't have a navy blue cardi, but hmmm...I could still worth that combo. Thence, this outfit was born. I last wore this cardigan here a few weeks ago with my chicken blouse.
I am dotty for this blouse! It's such a pretty blue, and who doesn't love polka dots? I last wore it here earlier in July with cherry.
The skirt is a lovely swooshy crepe - the skirt is very swingy. I attempted to do an "action shot" this morning, but it was all blurry. I last wore it here in May with my Chinese blouse.

The stuff:
The beloved Kermit shoes! They are fuzzy wool with raised dots. I loved the pop of green in the outfit. I last wore these for St. Patrick's Day in March here.

Dinner, then couch-surfing for me...

Cardigan (Club Monaco, thrifted), blouse (vintage, handmade, thrifted), skirt (Tobias, thrifted), shoes (Poetic License), earrings (Aldo Accessories), lapis lazuli ring (Wendy Brandes).

This is a cute look and what fun shoes! I love mustard with navy- actually I love it with most deep jewel tones. Adding green shoes to this outfit is brilliant! So L doesn't hate the Kermit shoes! That's good.

I detect some trouble with Wednesdays over here... Let's just remove it from the week, shall we? We'll have double-Thursdays, Thurs I and Thurs II. Much better. I looove those Kermie shoes and the dots on blue with mustard are powerboosters for sure.

Your shoe closet is never ending, and endlessly fascinating! I would have posted the blurry swish photo...oh wait, I did! :-) XO JJ

Love polka dots -- anywhere! That's a super-pretty blouse and of course I love the fuzzy shoes. xo

I love your Kermit shoes!! I hate when you find yourself thinking it is one day and it ends up not being that day!

I am a polka dot fan - so yeah I am all for the shirt.
This is a very classic look for you and you gave it your personal touch with the fun green shoes. I think Miss Piggy would steal them from you, like I - if I were your neighbor and if they were my size :)
