More Polka Dots (Because Why Not?)

You know how when you mix denim and denim you get a Canadian tuxedo? I feel like there should be a term like that for when you wear head to toe polka dots as well. Suggestions welcome below. ;)

I wore this outfit a couple weekends ago for some errands to the mall, hang out time with family, and dinner with Nicks parents. When I got up that morning I think I went through three or four different outfits before saying "screw it" and putting on my uber comfy gap chambray for probably the seventh time since I bought it just a couple weeks ago. It's just so soft! And neutral! And soft...

After deciding on that piece the rest of the outfit just fell together. I haven't worn this skirt in awhile because I've gained a massive amount of weight this year and I was scared to try it on and discover it didn't fit anymore as I purchased it years ago when I was a size eight. Well halleluiah it still fit! I added the  new green (ya, they're green despite how they look in these pictures) knee socks, some fun jewelry and my moccasins for a cozy fall touch.
It's amazing how good I feel when I spend a little extra time choosing an outfit. Nothing compares to the confidence gained in a fun outfit like this one! I think that discovering I could still fit into that skirt made me realize I need to stop fearing my wardrobe and start trying everything on again and purging the things that don't fit. I keep thinking I should keep them "for when I loose a few pounds" but in the meantime they're in my closet staring at me in the morning reminding me to hate myself. Well no thanks, you can go. When I do loose a few pounds it will be an excellent excuse to buy a new wardrobe thank you.
