Outfit: Polka Dot Matching Set with Floral Wedges and a Straw Hat

You don't have to be a genius to figure out it's still super summery here in Georgia. I'm definitely looking forward to being able to wear more layers, but I tried hard to embrace the heat by wearing this outfit. I realized I hadn't featured my polka dot matching set without a cardigan yet, so I here it is! This is one of my absolute favorite purchases from Forever 21. It's so breezy and comfortable in this humid weather. This time I wore my cute straw hat with it and a pair of floral wedges I don't wear often enough.

So have you guys had a good week so far? The weekend is around the corner! Though weekends generally aren't much different than weekdays for me. I spend a lot of time researching every single day. (Places that may have jobs, jobs that are posted, how to make my applications better, improving the freelance work I'm doing, articles to share to maintain my social presence, and on and on and on.) I've been thinking maybe I need to actually take breaks from the computer, but I'm never caught up on everything I want to do. 

I keep wondering how long it's going to take for me to get my crap together and be a real adult. I want to get a job, contribute, and move away from Georgia. I could rant about the state of the job market and how frustrated I am with the "advice" I keep getting, but I'll spare you that since this is an outfit post. These posts aren't supposed to bring you down! Just look at my pretty outfit!

Have a great Friday!

Oh, don't I know all about that well-intentioned advice people keep giving me.

"Put yourself out there more!" "Work for free to gain experience!"

It's enough to drive you crazy. But we won't dwell on that, let's dwell instead on your gorgeous little outfit! I can see you're nuts for sets, I would be too if I could find any sets like that in the shops! I did find a vintage suit set at one point but a suit isn't exactly the same as a matching set outfit, hrm.. Will have to keep looking.

I hear you! Nothing like cliched advice that people seem to love to give...the teenager in me always makes me want to roll my eyes when I get it, hehe.

On a brighter note - your outfit is divine! I love matching sets - though I don't have one of my own yet. This one is perfect on you. You look like a doll :-)

Happy weekend! xo Marisa

I also live in the south and it's still pretty hot here! Although today it's only supposed to hit 86 degrees so I guess that means the weather is cooling down?? Eh, probably not, haha.

Good luck in finding a job! It also took me a LONG time to find one myself, but things eventually worked out so hopefully it's just a matter of time and patience :)

Firstly love the polka dot and floral wedge combo. And... all the best on your job search too. I know what you mean about computers, good grief, I'm always on mine. But I'm trying to take break breaks on the weekend... mainly because I'm having nerve damage in my arm from it. Ugh!

Frannie Pantz said...

I'm so sorry. I know how frustrating that can be! I think that breaks actually can be a great thing. I would suggest taking some time to yourself, but then again you probably don't need more advice. Good luck to you! Love the polka dots!

Camilla said...

First of all: loved your dress and your wedges! <3 And I'm really sorry you're getting tired of this time when you're entering adult life. It's really boring but you'll get there. Take it easy and try to enjoy every moment ok? : )

XOXO

Good luck on the job search! I know you'll get there eventually. I know a girl who submitted like 300 applications over 6 months until she found one that suited her. Not to like, scare you or anything, but don't give up hahaha. Anywho, you look absolutely adore in these polka dots! I feel you on the busy weekends--I'm practicelly never out of the studio anymore.

Imogen said...

I love this because polka dots are my favourite are so are matching separates right now. Just bought my first set recently and can't wait until the warmer weather so I can start to wear it. Good luck with jobs. I seriously understand how you must be feeling. Slightly over a year ago that was me and I was so frustrated beyond words. Then I got lucky and have been in my current job for a year now and definitely say it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I never thought I would be saying that so keep hope that this can happen for you too.

The job market here is horrendous. Even if you find a somewhat acceptable job you get paid so very little you can barely survive. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't sweat it, it's bad everywhere, it's not your fault the world sucks and people are having babies, with not enough resources and we don't have enough jobs and the economy is a mess :D
Love the pin up outfit, adore the straw hat, you're adorable ^_^

It's still super summery here too (and I like that! I can wear my shorts/skirts/dresses much longer haha). I love the cropped polka-dot set--wish I had one as well.

Good luck with the job search! It really does suck right now, so I know how hard it is. And hey, I have a job and still don't feel like a ~real adult yet. >_<

~ K said...

I think you suit crop tops and matching sets better than anyone I know! You always look amazing.

Being an adult sucks, but don't let it bring you down, you'll get there and don't settle for rubbish when you don't have to. I hope things pick up soon and you find something, but there will be something out there for you soon!

Amanda said...

Soon enough you will get that job! It sounds like you are keeping busy and looking and doing your best. I totally get what you mean with getting your life together and living the adult life, but it sounds that you are already there =)... Anyways I think you look stunning =)

Christina Langner said...

Much love xxx

whaaaat F21 had matching sets this year?! I wish I caught onto that earlier. It looks super adorable with the straw hat :) And I feel you about wanting to find a job. I've been freelancing for over a year now, and even though it's fun it's stressful because there isn't a lot of money involved. And I'm half desperate to get my own apartment- no roommates. It'll come though- we just got to keep trying!

You look beautiful!! This makes me wish I had a polka dot matching set RIGHT NOW. I love how you've styled it - this is the perfect context for a straw boater hat!

It sounds like you already have your crap together, the world just needs to get ITS crap together and hire you.

I love this outfit so much! I would've never guessed that 2 piece was from F21- they really nail it sometimes! I won't burden you with more advice, and I don't really have any to give, but I know the right job will come along for you soon!

Amber said...

I cannot believe this set is from Forever 21! I can never seem to find a lot of cute things there, but this set is adorable! I think I actually may have tried on the skirt when I was there a few weeks ago, but I didn't see the top! Soooo cute.
