Have you ever put on a top only to know within minutes that you'll probably never wear it again? That's what happened with this top (which has been neglected for over a year). I planned this outfit over the weekend, but it wasn't until I put it on this morning that I 'broke up' with this top. I bought it two years ago when I really wanted "a polka dot top". I didn't have any specifics in mind, other than black and white polka dots. Fast-forward two years, to when this top is heading for the donate pile.
Fashion tip of the day: The more detailed your wish list items are, the happier you'll be!
I wanted "a polka dot top", and came home with one, but with things I didn't like about it (and chose to ignore). I don't like 3/4 sleeve tops. I hate elastic at the bottom of shirts (hidden in these photos). The top isn't even polka dot-- it's more of a dalmatian print. You get the point. What I should have gone shopping for wasn't "a polka dot top" but rather "a white button up with black polka dots, evenly spaced, pea size, long sleeves"

I do, however, like the black and white spots with the red cardigan and black pants. You really can't go wrong with this template. I specifically chose the red cardigan because it's Red+Pink week, i.e., a Valentine's theme week! I am one of six coming together to bring you some holiday cheer!
