Gold Polka Dots and a Stella and Dot Statement Piece

My sweet friends (and sisters) Lauren, Steph and Melissa (in conjunction with Scott!) bought me this beautiful Stella and Dot necklace for my 29th birthday. (SO THOUGHTFUL!!!) It is truly a statement necklace; I have already received numerous compliments on it with my first wear! It can be worn three different ways. You can have 1, 2 or 3 pieces to it. It's very simple to maneuver and remove the sections. However, I LOVE it so much with all three parts! But, it's nice to have that option in case you do want to scale down the statement. 

 I chose to wear this foil dot shirt from J. Crew (a lovely Christmas gift from my mom) with the Stella and Dot stunner. It fits so well! I could totally see this gold polka-dotted shirt under a crisp, black blazer with a black pencil skirt for a polished interview (or observation, teachers!) look. Something that is slightly different than a plain collared shirt, yet still completely appropriate to wow your interviewers. Also, don't you think an interview committee would remember those fun polka dots on you?  :-)

I wore my (newly resoled!) favorite Tory Burch Reva Ballet Flats. Unfortunately, these are super old. BUT, fear not! Here are some similar flats. Do keep in mind that Tory Burch *often* hosts 30% off sales. Never pay full price for your Revas! I have had these particular flats since 2011. A $25 insole fix, and we are good to go for a few more seasons!

I kept this look simple on the bottom with a classic black pant from Ann Taylor. 

I hope you all had a marvelous Monday; as a teacher, I loved having the extra day in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.!  Our wind chill was -21 today, so it was a little rough, but I will take a long weekend at any temp! I am keeping this short tonight as I am trying out the ShopStyle Collective (thanks to my friend Krista's tutelage!). Please let me know what you think! (See below!).
