EBEW - Back to School Polka Dots

EBEW's September theme is "Back to School," so I figured I would do a little throwback inspiration from an old "first day of school" picture of myself.  I went to private school from 2nd grade through high school, so most of my first day of school outfit decisions were whether to wear a khaki or plaid skirt.  I had to go all the way back to Kindergarten to find a good one!
posing in front of a brick wall like a real fashion blogger!

I guess 6-year-old Andi knew I would want an excuse to wear my polka dot cardigan again. Of course, I had to wear double polka dots to channel my inspiration photo!  





Cardigan: Old Navy
Shirt: Gap
Belt: Limited
Skirt: Express
Shoes: Jellypop

  6. I love that you have your 6-year-old self as your style inspiration! And I love the adult version. So fun, but still sophisticated in this color palette.
