I’ve been wanting a polka dot skirt for months.  MONTHS, I tell you.  When I saw this one in a set on Polyvore I clicked on it thinking, “Oh, it’s probably sold out.”

When I realized it was actually available via the new J. Crew Factory website and was on sale for only $40 I practically ran to my wallet.

I ordered it in two sizes and was a little bummed when it arrived because the smaller size was a hair too small and the larger size was a hair too big.

So, I took a cue from Stylish Petite and washed and dried larger size of the 98% cotton skirt to see if it would shrink.  And you know what?  It did!  Now it fits perfectly.

There are a lot of polka dots going on in this outfit and along with the red jacket it feels very Fourth of July.  Still, I don’t care that the leaves are falling and it’s October, not July.  We have a warmer than usual day today so I’m wearing my new skirt with pride.
