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.
