Sophisticated Dots

Oh, hello there! 

It's Monday once again, and I am in such a motivated mood! I had such a wonderful weekend with my mom, who came into town for a couple days of shopping and relaxing. I'm months away from graduating and heading out into the real world, so I'm taking advantage of every chance I get to catch up with her! 

I've been dying to style these dotted tights for a while now. They're the perfect staple to have on hand since they add such flare to anything you pair them with. I have to say, I resemble a librarian/teacher a little too much with this ensemble, but I don't even care! The collared sweater, chunky pearls, and structured skirt are so chic and sophisticated. 

Now, if you're anything like me and cringe at the thought of pairing black and orange together, don't fret. Technically, this skirt is more coral but any bright, bold color would work perfectly with this outfit. I think a fuschia or teal color would be so fantastic! I love pencil skirts because they are usually high-waisted (come on, ladies) and are flattering on every body type. Just stick true to your size--tighter is not always better! This particularly skirt hits right at my knees, but I really prefer midi length. It's much more modest, and you don't have to worry about being in "dress code". 

I love, love love mock layered sweaters, and this one is no exception. The hem sits just below the waist, so you don't have to worry about tucking it or it being too cropped. This sweater is such a classic piece to own, and is the ultimate layering tool. You'll most definitely see it on the blog again!

Again with these fun tights! They add such a whimsical flair to a structured outfit, which is honestly my favorite thing about them. Who doesn't love polka dots? Scroll down to see the little surprise feature about these tights in the back!
