I'm pretty sure that there's a fashion rule that says you should either match your hosiery to your skirt or your shoes, and if you are a follow-the-rules kind of girl, then I'm also pretty sure you're gonna hate this outfit. But when I was digging through my drawers the other day and came across these unopened navy polka tights, I knew I needed to figure out something to wear them with. Because one of my fashion rules? Is that polka dots should be worn as often as possible, because they bring much-needed happiness and cheer to the world. There's a reason clowns love polkies, people!
And so, energized by my newfound Polka Dot Principle, this is the outfit that resulted. A coral basketweave mini topped with an denim shirt, layered under an Old Navy tee. A tee that clearly announces you should Live Free. Because you know, Living Enslaved just doesn't have the same ring to it. Cheesy mottos aside, I'm on a bit of an Old Navy tee kick, mainly because if you order online they have a decent selection of tall sizes, and the extra length on these tees is great for keeping muffin tops covered when you're out there living free and all.
So there you have it: Live free and wear polka dots. Not a bad mantra, if I do say so myself. Happy Wednesday, y'all!
