In My Closet: Simple Comfort with a Cat Tote

There are times when jeans are not the most comfortable essential in your wardrobe. This happens when you're in between sizes; your proportions don't fit any designer's average standard sizing proportions. So, I'm more at ease in skirts and dresses right now.
A Little Whimsy in Cream, Black, and Red
This means at Alt Summit, I'll be wearing lots of tights (fleece-lined leggings and tights are a wonderful invention) and boots. Today's the official start of the conference, a full day of sessions from 9 to 5, followed by the Clue-themed party. For on-the-go, stylish comfort, I'm going to go with a touch of red and a whole bunch of polka dots.
What I'm Wearing: Five Strand Black and Green Beaded Necklace, from Patsy's Vintage Treasures (Etsy) $15; Cream with Black Polka Dot Dress by DJ & Co. from Sixty Five Roses (Etsy), $36; Red Leather Skinny Belt by Liz Claiborne from Frequency Vintage (Etsy), $7.50; Black and Cream Oxford T-Strap Pumps by Amalfi from Vintage Turtle (Etsy), $43; Eyelet Lace Petticoat from Millesime Belle (Etsy) now closed, $12.99; Cat Tote by Jason Wu from Target, $39.99.
How many Jason Wu cat totes do you predict at Alt?
Ciao Bella!
