  1. words cannot describe how much I love this outfit. I wish I could fit into the skirt but alas, I must find my own giant polka dot skirt 🙂 xoxo

  2. Ingenious! I’ve been there — thank goodness for XL sizes for kids.

  3. Ooo! I love this skirt! I’ve been looking for a polka dotted one for ages! You’re blog is fabulous! I can’t believe I just came across it now! Love your style!
    Please check out mine if you get a chance:)

  5. What an adorable look. Love the mix of colours and prints 😉

  6. How cute is that skirt! I do the same thing, but with shoes. I can go as small as a size 3 in kids sizes, and if there’s a comparable pair, they’re usually a lot cheaper!

  7. I always think about the kid stuff, but am afraid to explore the section. This skirt looks so great though!!
