polka dotted

Finally get back into the swing of things after a weekend under the weather. Baby boy and I have been trading around a cold or some such nonsense for about two weeks now. He had his four-month checkup yesterday and passed with flying colors...he now weights 16 lbs 4 oz, is 25.5" long and has a big 'ole noggin in the 92 percentile. The doctor confirmed he has a cold, so I'm assuming that's what I have as well, though I've been too stubborn to see a doctor myself. After all, I'm not running a fever. Am I the only one that puts off seeing the doc unless they are feverish (and feel like they're dying)?

This might just be one of my favorite outfits I've worn recently...after all it incorporates two of my favorite things: a cozy sweater and a flirty polka dot skirt! The only thing that would have made it more perfect is if I had (and worn) a teal sweater. J. Crew's tippi sweaters are some of my absolute favorites. They're well-made and lightweight enough for Florida non-winters. I usually end up picking up one of two each year, and I definitely have my eye on the heather mint.

This adorable skirt is on clearance with a select few sizes left over. I went up a size to accommodate my lingering postpartum belly, and an 18 fit comfortably high on my waist. Things to note: it's listed as a midi skirt, and as you can see in these pictures...it's not. Also, it's quite lightweight, so it wouldn't been warm enough in cooler climates, but it was just about perfect for a balmy Florida winter day.

Overall, a rather simple outfit, but I think the polka dot pattern adds an element of fun, and you can't go wrong with bows on your toes. :)

  1. As someone married to a doctor who occasionally gets annoyed about people filling up his appointment slots when they only have colds, I say you're doing the right thing ;-) Fevers or sinus issues that last more than a week are legit, according to him, but otherwise colds just take time and rest... But no fun, especially when your poor little mister has one.

    You're looking fresh and lovely in this outfit though! The skirt is so perfect for you, of course. And now I'm kinda tempted to check it out too...
