Polka dot prep

I'd like to declare that the warm weather is here to stay.  Sure, there may still be patches of ice around, but I refuse to acknowledge their existence, and I'm optimistic that they won't survive another week.  This weather's been kind of crazy where we've pretty much skipped the mildly-chilly temperatures of leather jackets and gone right to light jacket/blazer season.  I don't mind too much, because it makes wearing long socks and skirts all the more acceptable.  Though it is a little disheartening when I still see people in UGGs and parkas.  We're just gonna insist that they're the people that are weather confused, not me.

I noticed a general tend in when I wear my red cardigan.  Usually, it has something to do with a variation of a preppy look with either stripes, polka dots, collared shirts, and/or long socks.  I'm gonna point to general typical depictions of English prep school looks.  That's so much more fun than American public school looks of jeans and hoodies, right?

  8. This is a fun look, I like the polka dot & red combo. I'm glad the weather is super warm, but I'm a bit afraid we'll get hit with a surprise snowstorm at the end of march!
