The polka dot skirt is back! This outfit is actually reminiscent of the very first outfit I wore with this skirt. I swapped out my denim jacket for the world's coziest cardigan, which I've been wearing nonstop lately. I resisted the longer, shawl-style cardigan last year, but I'm so glad I finally gave in because it's warm and versatile.

Speaking of versatility, this skirt might be the most blogged item on my blog. I wore it five times in my 30x30, and it have worn it three other times, not including today's post. What I'm saying is you need a skirt like this. It doesn't have to be navy or polka dotted or pleated, but you should have a skirt that you can grab and re-wear a bunch of different ways. Oh, and it should make you feel really cute too.

Also, in case you were wondering (you weren't), the only reason I'm not wearing rights is because I had an epic snag at a wedding I went to a couple of weekends ago, and Target has yet to restock their tights selection since Black Friday. Where do you get your infallible tights? I usually swear by Target, but might need to expand my horizons.


  1. Your photography has been so exquisite lately! I'm jealous. This is such a cute outfit!

  2. My go-to tights lately have been the Jessica Simpson tights at Nordstrom Rack. I'm a pro at snagging or getting runs in my tights, and so far I've had these for 5 months and they have yet to fade, stretch out, or show any runs or holes! They run about $6-8 a pair.

  3. ooh, thanks for the rec! i will be checking those out ASAP!

  4. They also usually have their in-house brand fleece tights and leggings, which are super comfy after a wear or two!

  5. I love the way you're styling your hair lately! I got my most recent pair from h&m and I like them. They have options in different deniers, which is nice. I love that you went grey on grey!

  6. This outfit is so cute! I just got a pair of tights from Forever 21 for a good price that so far seem really good, although they're a bit shiny instead of being matte, which I prefer.
