Polka dots have me feeling young and fun!

There’s something about polka dots that just make me feel young and fun. It’s not even like this is an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini. I mean, obviously that would be super fun to wear! It’s a brown/burgundy skirt with polka dots. And for some reason when I put it on, I just want to go shopping and hang out with my girlfriends. Ha! So the way this outfit makes me feel is why I wanted to write about it today but also because it’s very affordable! I almost saved it for an affordable Friday because the prices are so good.

Let’s talk about the skirt. It’s only $35! I don’t wear tennis skirts. Especially short skirts. In the summer I do love a good maxi skirt, but short skirts always make me feel like they look too young on me. When I wear this one it does make me feel young… but  flirty young and not like I’m 15 years young. That’s because of the the fact that it’s high waisted. Ha! High-waisted anything adds a level of sophistication in my mind. Plus, ever since I had kids I pretty much can’t wear anything that isn’t high waisted. That lower belly is not gonna work in low-rise jeans anymore. I like that the skirt hits me right at the waist but isn’t too short.

You guys have seen me wear this cami before. It goes with so many things and that’s why I feel like it’s a must to buy! I work with this look a couple weeks ago with shorts and I thought it looked so cute. But it’s equally as cute with the skirt. It has limited sizes left. I’m wearing a medium FYI. So if you can’t get the cami I’m wearing in your size, this one is also on sale for $20 and it’s really cute too! I actually have this one as well, and I can tell you from experience that it is a great blouse to have in your wardrobe for layering with looks for the office or just for summer in general.

I think the accessories make this look extra fun too. The only accessory that I’m missing that I kind of wish I added was maybe a belt. I think that really would’ve brought everything together even more. I just found this one for $3 that I am definitely going to order and try out!  But the hat also adds another element to make the look feel more stylish! If you haven’t gotten this hat by now what are you waiting for?! This is only the 50th time I’ve written about it. It’s my absolute favorite! If $44 is a little bit out of your budget for a hat, and I totally get that, I’m going to leave another one that’s only $10 here. I feel like this one would also look really cute with this outfit if you are looking for a more affordable option. The reviews aren’t good which is weird because the EXACT same hat HERE in black has AMAZING reviews. So I think it’s worth getting and returning if you don’t like. Or you can just save a little time and get the exact one I’m wearing!

When I bought the shoes they were $120, and now they are on sale for 100. I recommend them if you like a high heel. But they are very high! I normally don’t do this  high of a heel but I thought it looked really cute with the skirt so I went for it this time. I’m not really a high heel kind of gal. But I know people who are friends of mine that won’t wear anything but 4 inches. Bless them!

And last but definitely not least, is my bag that’s on sale for 50% off right now! I’ve had this bag for at least six months now and I’m so excited it’s on sale for you guys. I love the color because it goes with so many things and I also love the size because it’s not huge, but it fits so much inside. And I think for $32 it’s an absolute steal! I’m tempted to go back and link some of the past looks where I’m carrying this bag. Maybe I’ll do that later today if I have time. Just so you can see how versatile it is for a bunch of different outfits!!!

Anyway, just wanted to share this with you guys. And of course, I’ll be watching the Bachelorette tonight and blogging about it tomorrow so make sure you come back if you want my scoop on that. I actually already got a sneak peek of the episode and I can tell you right now a lot of drama is going to go down! So make sure you come back for all my thoughts tomorrow.

  1. Beautiful! Love the whole outfit! The first thing I thought of when I saw the skirt was the brown polka dot dress from Pretty Woman! Of course I’ve seen that movie too many times😉. Have a great week!

  2. This is a super cute outfit! I love the polka dots, it’s a great summer outfit idea.

    Often you wear a cute little key necklace, do you think you could add a link to that? It’s adorable, I can’t tell if you are wearing it in these photos.

  3. I LOVE your blog and style..and so many tips-I’ve recently had a baby and the struggle with a different body is real! Thanks for all your tips!
