PolkaDots and Mint.

 Every once in a while I may post an outfit post, and you will notice, I shall probably fit into the “Modern Fashion Bloggers”. I wear skirts. Every day. To school. To the grocery store. Everywhere. And I don’t mean mini’s .. I mean down to the “proper” “old-fashioned” “prudish” and occasionally “matronly”.  
 Girls that wear skirts, are just as prone to fall into the “jeans (skirt) and sweater” rut. And believe me, if I wore pants, sweats and baggy sweaters would be my all time uniform – which is another reason I’m beyond thankful for always wearing skirts. It gives me that push to dress up every day. 
 My first four-day-week of school ended with a total of a compliment each day. Sweatpants and baggy sweaters might not have. Compliments make me feel good. What?! They do! I admit it! 
 Every once in a while, I shall document my failures and scores here.  I’m no fashonista and I don’t pretend each of these posts will be all that great, but I put thought into my outfits, so, why not share them with you?! 
 To kick this off, here’s a taste of polka-dots, boots, messy hair, and mint.
Skirt – ForeverXXI
Top – Smart Set
Belt – from another top from Urban Behaviour
Boots – Breckelle’s via Burlington
Hair Clip – Shabby Apple
Tights – good ol’ Walmart
Glasses – Firmoo
Yes! Posing in my backyard is awkward, but I hope to get better at it and have some more natural-looking photos in the future! Bear with me? I’ll get there!

    You have a wonderful sense of style! I am a jeans & t-shirt girl myself, and don't often take the time I should in putting together my wardrobe. You just might inspire me to give it some thought! 😉

    BTW, I love the back yard pics!

    You are just adorable! Love your sense of style. It I love your skirt, I am so short I can't wear long ones as they become gowns. The flower in your hair is a great touch!! Keep being you!

    Adorable! I want the entire outfit. And, I think it's great that you wear skirts everyday. I love skirts,though I'll admit I don't wear them as much in the winter. (And, I wear sweats way too much!)

    I'm not a good person to ask. I wore flannel shirts and jeans for my entire college career. That said, I think you look adorable!

    I wear skirts daily too, even when it's not a work day. On vacations, I've been known do a dressing room change in the car, from skirt to capris to go on a hike, then back to my skirt. I find skirts and hiking aren't really buddies! Your outfit is super cute!

    I have soooo got stuck in the jeans and jumper rut now that is is acceptable to wear such things at work! You look gorgeous, I wish I could look as good you in skirts! That said you have inspired me to at least attempt a little variation!!
