Polka Dots and Gingham Monochrome, plus All About You Party!

Welcome on this "All About You" Tuesday. Today I am co-hosting with the Lovely ZAZ from Mama and More. She is a thirty-something Mother of 2 who calls UK her home. She is Stylish, Beautiful and Super Sweet. So join her and I today. The Link up is called "All About You" so the post can be about anything and everything. 
For this Post, I am showing you two pretty simple, Monochromatic Looks featuring Polka Dots, Gingham and Neutral Colors. First up is this Outfit with my Polka Dot Pencil Skirt, Black Opaque Patterned Tights, Blue+White Gingham Shirt and my Black, Scoop-Neck Sweater over it. I wore my Black+Blue Oxfords because they matched the Outfit perfectly. I accessorized with a Silver Bauble Necklace and some Blue Multi-faceted Globe Earrings. I have worn this same skirt similarly with my Blue+Black Buffalo Plaid Shirt, a Black Blazer and more pops of Blue. I wore this to work. I had a couple of appointments that day and I did receive a couple of compliments on this Outfit, which I love. =) What about you?
Cobalt+White, Plaid Button-down w/ Gingham Print inside (I reversed the shirt): Joe Fresh (JC Penney's) (very similar by Brooks Brothers, great deal, love this), (very similar, love this, Splurge), (gorgeous, sky blue option w/ two pockets, love this), (similar by Forever 21, best deal).
Off-Black, Spider-Print Opaque Tights: H&M.

A few weeks later, subconsciously I paired B+W Polka Dots on the bottom with a B+W Gingham Shirt and my Taupe Cardigan and Brown Fur Boots. I guess when it works, it works. I like how the Taupe Cardi and Brown Boots are basically 2 different shades of the same color. I wore some Double-sided, Black Bobble Studs and those black dots on my ears go well with the polka dots on the leggings, as well. I finished off with Red Lipstick. I wore this Outfit on a Saturday morning running errands and later on playing with Vivian outside. Have you paired Polka Dots with Gingham before? I think they look nice, especially if they are in the same color family.
Black Velvet Leggings w/ White Polka Dots: Koton (similar, best deal), (similar by F21, great deal, love these), (fun option by Kensie, love these).
Black, Plastic, Double-sided, Bobble Earrings: An Accessories Boutique (New) (gorgeous option by Marc Jacobs, great deal), (similar by Kendra Scott, on sale, love these), (simple classic black studs, best deal).

P.S. Also, linking up with Alison, Alycia, Amber, Angela, Erin, Jessica, Laura, Lauren, Lindsey, Lisa, Nicole, Rachel, Shanna and Whitney. Once again linking up with Carrie because some of her "Create 28" Prompts for the last week have been Polka Dots, Patterns and Pencil Skirts and I covered them all with this post. And I am linking up with Maegen because the Creative Closet's Link up today is all about Polka Dots.

Once again, Thanks a Lot for joining our Link-up, today.
Have a Great Tuesday!

  20. Love the polka dots and gingham! It's a wonderful combination that I never even thought to try! Great pattern mixing with both looks!

  21. Love both of these fun polka dotted looks--great pattern mixing too! I especially love that polka dot skirt--I used to have a similar one, but the fit wasn't quite right. I think I need to go find one though!

  22. Great to see you co-hosting at one of my fav linkys! Love the polka dot skirt, I don't wear black as a rule but navy/white could work just as well I think. #AllAboutYou

  23. I love how you layered the gingham top and paired it with the adorable polka dot skirt, your hair looks pretty up too Ada!! Hope you are having a great week:)

  24. I'm not very good at pattern mixing like you Ada! But I love gingham, and I love polkadots, so maybe this is one I could try if I stick to the monochrome palette like you show here. x

  25. Wonderful and tasteful take on print mixing! Both pairings are gorgeous, Ada!

  26. Ada, you have a gift with mixing patterns and colours. And those shoes - stunning!
