Polka Dot Skirt

Navy Silk Blouse: Thrifted ($4)
Skirt: Forever 21 ($17)
BCBG Pumps: Thrifted ($20)
La Mer Watch: Target

 I wore this outfit earlier this month when it was a bit warmer. I adore how feminine the skater skirt is and fell in love with this polka dot version from Forever 21. The soft pink mixed with navy made for a beautiful print. I added a silk navy blouse and nude pumps for a classic outfit. 
Let me just tell you about these pumps! If you follow me on instagram (@Francescapenko) you would have seen me post these! I had been looking for nude pumps that went well with my skin tone. Every pair I tried on was too peachy or too pink, it just looked silly on me! I was browsing a thrift store and found these and was overjoyed. Not only were these in my size and brand new, but they only cost $20! It was a very happy day for me!

*Side note: Are there any Bay Area bloggers out there? I would LOVE to check out your blog! 
It's fun seeing local bloggers' pages :)

Thank you so much for reading!


  1. I recently starting thrifting. Being on a budget, I realized I had to find ways to keep my wardrobe updated and fun without breaking the bank. Love your entire outfit! xo, Angela


    1. It's so much more fun to thrift then go drop $100 on a blouse at the mall. Plus, I'm always excited for days after a great find. It's guilt free shopping! Who wouldn't love that?!
