what i wore: pink polka dots

the details
headband - Forever 21
sunglasses - Target
shirt - c/o Modcloth
skirt - Forever 21
shoes - thrifted

Told ya guys I got this skirt in another color! I am still obsessed with it. It's literally just a perfect skirt. (okay, minus the fact the wrinkles near the top are hard to iron out!) If you saw every outfit I wore you'd be so sick of seeing this darn skirt in each of the three colors I own it in. I love that it's short enough to be cutesy but still covers everything up and that it doesn't need a slip worn under it for it to be fluffy.

When I bought the other two colorways of the skirt I also picked up this floral headband. I bought it just to experiment with since I'm not much of a headband wearer. They normally feel really awkward on my head and I can never forget that I have one on so I always touching at them and moving them. But I am in love with baby! Sadly it feels like it's pretty cheap and I expect it really won't last long. But it's got me on the hunt for similar ones (like this one from Claire's!) and you best believe I'm going to be wearing this one until it breaks beyond repair.

Well I'm off to have what should hopefully be a more productive day than yesterday. I was struck down midday with a nasty headache and spent most of my Monday on the couch napping. I'm probably the only person in the world that hates to nap too, feels like such a waste. But now I'm feeling 100% better and ready to kick today's butt!  Hope you're having a fabulous, productive day!
xoxo

  12. Aghhh you look so good! What a perfect summer outfit! Don't be surprised if I show up wearing something similar on my blog.

  13. Oh I am an epic anti-napper. I gave them up when I was under the age of two and never looked back. My mom had to compromise with "quiet time", where I'd read a book to myself while the rest of the world napped. They are a waste of time and I always wake up feeling groggy. Also, I don't think I'd ever get sick of polka dots :-) That skirt looks excellent!

  14. i'm glad you are feeling better - but i hate napping too. i agree it's a complete waste of time. the only time you will catch me sleeping during the day is when i have the flu or a terrible migraine that i just can't get rid of. whenever my friend's tell me they are going to take a nap after work i ask them if they are 3 and have their blankie with them.

  15. This outfit is ridiculously perfect and adorable and I LOVE that skirt! Goodnesssss!

    Also, that headband is SO cute and I feel so weird in them and they give me headaches and I've been wearing them all the time anyway. (cuz my hair is in this weird grow out phase and I can't do much with it) Anyway that headband looks like great DIY inspiration...I'm already thinking of what I have in my closet of craft crap that I can try to make one! Eep!

  18. Uggh! Napping IS such a waste! I had to go to the dentist yesterday. I always get really sleeping after visiting the dentist so I was contemplating a nap, but I forced myself to be productive instead! I hope you're feeling better from yesterday :)

  19. I don't like napping either. I seem to always feel worse after the nap so I don't see the point ;)

  26. That daisy headband from Claire's can also be found at Forever 21 (not sure if they're on the website anymore) and they come in a ton of colors (I have the black one) but they're pretty hard to come by at the store. Anyway, I love the outfit!

  27. I never have enjoyed napping but ~gosh~ I usually need to nowadays! I've slowly become a biphasic sleeper since I started college. I work 100x better between the late hours of 10 and 2am, so if I don't nap during the day (usually between noon and 3pm) I will wind up oversleeping the next day by up to 5 hours! I don't know what my body has against my being awake for long periods of time, but I guess I'll get used to it one day!

    I love that headband by the way! The arms of my glasses are so thick and curved so tightly around my ears that solid headbands are impossible for me to wear without getting a massive headache. I wonder if I could fashion a similar one out of cord...
