Outfit Details: Sunnies: Jessica Simpson (TJ Maxx); Cardigan: Old Navy; Button-down: Vintage (thrifted); Pants: New York & Company; Belt: Express Men (Husband's); Loafers: Bass (outlet)

When I thrifted this vintage, polka dot button-down (adorable, right?) recently, I knew I wanted to style it in a simple, preppy way. My tortoise shell wayfarers, a cardigan, and my Bass Weejuns are a few of my go-to preppy pieces, so adding them to this look was a no-brainer.

As much as I love this top, though, I'm afraid it won't end up being very versatile. What do you think? How else can I wear it?

  1. I love the way you styled it!  You can wear it with jeans and white pants or shorts in the summer.

    I think that top with be plenty versatile! I'm thinking jeans and a blazer, maybe with the black pencil skirt and a cardi, and you could use some of your amazing scarf collection items to do some pattern mixing.

  4. That polka dot blouse is so cute! I think it's more versatile than you think...I'd wear it with a pencil skirt and skinny belt for a professional look or with a cardi on top, jeans, and a scarf for a casual look.

  5. Love that thrifted top! And it looks cute with this preppy outfit.

    I think this shirt could be very versatile!! (and if you don't think so then send it my way haha). You could wear it tucked into a skirt, with wide-leg jeans, knotted over a dress...

    Um I love this top! I believe it can be totally versatile.... you can wear it with Jeans & Shorts and if you tied it it would look super cute! also with a skirt tucked in. I love it and  jealous of your find! Love the loafers too!

  9. Polkadots and a cardigan? Two of my favorite things! I'd wear the shirt tied up over a flowy dress.

    NO way, it will be SO versatile!  With a cute dark blue or A-line denim skirt,  with a little black dress, a pair of white shorts... SO much!  I really love it!

  11. This would go with so much! Love this top. I'd probably be mixing it with white and blue for a nautical feel or maybe some black and leather to make it a little rock n' roll.

  13. i'm obsessed with polka dots  & i love the penny loafers! I think you can definitely get more wear out of the shirt! how about knotted, paired w/ a floaty white skirt during summer? or chambray shorts? :)

  14. First of all that last photo of you is stunning! I don't have a red polka dot blouse in my wardrobe but now I wish I did- so adorable! I love how you styled it- you could also do a feminine look with a skirt for versatility.

  17.  Cute top!  I think it would go well with navy capris or a navy skirt, and would be really cute with olive pants.
