What's a polo shirt anyways ?

This week my goal is to make polo shirts work appropriate.
First of all a "polo" shirt is defined as 
A knit pullover with a turned-over knit collar and placket at the neck. 
Originally worn by polo players because the collar stayed down during play, polo shirts became popular leisurewear in the 1930s, being worn by both men and women in fashionable summer resorts. ...", well this according to:

The definition works for me.

Other definitions include the words casual and sportswear.
So the idea to make this work is dress that polo up and make it
work appropriate!

Today I took my yellow striped Lacoste polo to the next level by 
wearing it with a pleated cotton skirt by Zara, a patent skinny belt 
of the same yellow tone and a Liz Claiborne bag 
to make it super matchy matchy.

Also added flower print Qupid course pumps 
(which you can't see thanks to Marshmallow's behind) and
simple silver accessories.


For some reason I am really enjoying this challenge !
Which of course, you are welcome to join :)
Do YOU have any tips on how to make polo shirt work acceptable ?
I would love to try them!

I haven't worn a polo shirt since high school (1985)!

I love the looks you've done this week, Lorena! Looking great.

I think you definitely succeeded in making this work!

The yellow and white combo is very cute and summery (lets pretend it's still summer).

I can't partake in this challenge, as I own no polo shirts. I had a light blue one once, but then it got a bleach mark, and that was that.

Fabulous outfit. I have over a dozen (male) polo shirts and never thought they could look as good as you wear them. I love the yellow and white color-scheme.

And it was fun to see the name Zara: I just picked up a Zara skirt today at a thrift-store for $1. (Not as cute as yours, though!)
