Pinterest Told Me To - Mint & Polka Dots

I just love the color mint for spring. It was definitely the color of the season last spring & I'm so excited it's coming back again this year. Just like the taste of mint, the sight of it is almost refreshing. I also love polka dots. All sizes. All colors. Love them all. So it comes as no shock that I fell in love with this inspiration photo over a year ago. It had so many elements that I loved! I always take a few minutes to admire it when it comes across my Pinterest page. It's just a happy outfit. 

So when J.Crew Factory came out with a white skirt with black polka dots, I knew I needed to have it! I was so excited when it arrived, and knew immediately that I was going to copy this outfit.... 

I did pretty good right?! It's still freezing here, so a) I added tights & boots to the equation and b) you're stuck with a crappy inside my house picture instead of the cute strolling down the sidewalk one in the inspiration photo. I'm sorry, but I'd have to add a parka to pull that off right now & that would just kill the combo... 

But moving past my poor photography skills... I love this outfit! I'm really excited to be able to wear it without the tights & boots, but I think it'll be another two months or so until I can. Until then, I'll be rocking it this way...

boots - Steve Madden // watch - Coach
I also added my favorite gold accessories to make the outfit pop. I decided not to copy the statement necklace in the inspiration photo because of my v-neck sweater. I thought the longer necklace was a better fit & it's just one of my favorite pieces in general, so I wear it every chance I get.
