I finally got some use out of my favorite Black Friday purchase this weekend – these adorable polka dot cords from Anthro. I am so crazy about the style, fit and material. They are SUPER soft, on the thinner side (which is nice in SoCal being that our "winters" are still 65+ degrees) and fitted without being uncomfortable.

Blazer: Anthropologie | Cords: Anthropologie | T-Shirt: Everlane | Boots: Steven by Steve Madden


I was a little nervous about the print – you know my pattern-phobia – but I've actually found so many uses for them already. Paired with a blazer and a plain tee, it's definitely a sophisticated-enough look for a day at the office, but with a chunky knit sweater and a denim jacket, they're perfect for a day full of holiday shopping and Breaking Dawn 2 (which is totally what my Sunday consisted of – YAY!). I can already tell these will be a new fall/winter staple item. 

Have you found any printed denim (or cords!) that you love lately? 
What's your favorite way to mix them up? 


P.S. are you as excited as me to watch Rudolph and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show tonight? Another sure sign that Christmas is around the corner. :)
