PolkaMint

Mint is still a hot color for spring and polka dots seem to be even more on fire now than ever before.
So naturally, I needed to put the two together!
It was a little cool for sleeveless,
 so I threw on this asymmetrical cardi. 
 It was just the weight I needed.
I am usually not a fan of the cropped pant,
 but these are right at the ankle which I think works well.
I paired this outfit with my fun caged wedges.
I wasn't feeling the "pussy bow" the day I wore this shirt,
 so I just knotted the ties and let them hang.
Now that my hair is short,
 I am having fun revisiting all of my earrings that I stopped wearing when my hair was long.

Are you an earring wearer?  
Do you prefer big earrings or small?

Mint is a great color and kind of a neutral. It goes with more than I would have thought. As far as earrings, I stick with my trusty silver medium hoop earrings. My favorites! Heather

This is pretty, Brett...but I'm slightly disappointed that the 'polka' part of you title didn't mean you were dancing a polka....just kidding.
Great outfit.

I agree about the cropped pants. Kinda difficult to wear unless you are one of those leggy individuals. Love the mint and polka dots:)

Sadly I hardly ever wear earrings any more. Sam likes to pull at them too much. But you're right, they are fun to do with shorter hair!

mint is still a big fave of mine!
I guess i'm a small earrings wearer, though i have plenty of statement ones as well!
Chic on the Cheap

These pants are a great length for you! I struggle with cropped pants as well... it either looks like my pants are too small or they break too far down and they don't look exactly right. I like big earrings but my hair is always covering them! So I wear bigger necklaces instead.

Lovely outfit, I love your blouse and your shoes.

brett, i would so steal that blouse. no i don't really steal. i would so wear it though. o should get my black and white polka dot blouse out. i'd forgotten i owned it. earrings used to be my favorite accessory. now i think it's necklaces or bracelets. i like large earrings when my hair is down, and sometimes small earrings when my hair is up. i just like jewelry.

I am not an earring wearer. I actually don't have pierced ears!
