THE POLKADOT TREND + PENCIL SKIRT
When I was younger I had my life all planned out. While I wasn’t exactly sure of what I was going to be when I grew up, I just knew that I would do something great. The plan was to grow up fast, finish school, get a dope job, make money, get married and then live happily after.
Looking back now, boy was I silly and a little bit delusional. It’s funny how our plans don’t always turn out the way we expect. And with every year, I am reminded that not having everything figured out is okay. After all, if we knew all the turns and bends of life where the fun would be and what reason would we even have to rely on God.
So I may not have everything all figured out but every day I get closer to discovering my purpose and I think that’s what matters in Life. We don’t necessarily have to have everything all figured out, we just need to make the move, progress and trust as we remember what the bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 8:28. Let us learn to trust a little bit more don’t you think?
Moving on to today’s outfit, I am one to shy away from polka dot prints and body-con skirts as you may have noticed. However, in the spirit of stepping out of comfort zones I thought why not give the polka dots trend a try. This top is actually from my store The Vintage Connection Ng, what attracted me to this blouse was the rustic colour and I love how it pairs with this orange midi pencil skirt previously styled here, here and here. I’ve actually decided to keep this top for myself as this would be such a versatile piece in my wardrobe.

This polka dot top is in line with my style resolutions for 2017and I can also think of three other ways of styling this top, I could pair it with this purple polka dot pleated skirt styled here or maybe with these burgundy trousers styled here and here. I could go on and on guys, look book anyone?
