From City To Sand: A Polka Dot Skirt

| |

Sometimes Pink Tights Just Aren't Enough // Mixed Prints...Finally!
As my time in Mexico quickly comes to an end I thought it might be fun to feature a few pieces that served me well in both a city and in sand. First up is this polka dot skirt. I can’t help but laugh that I first wore this back in June and yet it still wasn’t warm enough in Portland to go without tights. Fast forward to November when I rocked it with just a tank. Yeah, I’m going to miss the weather.

Doesn’t this feel a bit like a “who wore it better”? Tell me, friends: who wore it better? The pale girl in the pink tights or the tan one in the striped tank?

I love both looks, but the tank and skirt seem to win me over.  You look more happier and confident:)

First, that skirt is just fabulous.  Second, I'm a sucker for well-done pattern mixing, so the second look is winning me over, but just by a smidge.  Did I just type smidge?  I need to get more sleep....

Oh my goodness - I miss that platinum blonde bowl cut. Have you given any thought to what you'll do with your hair once you're back in the states?? I can't wait - 2 weeks and you'll be here!!!

Santina said...

I miss it, too, Becca! It's funny because I usually don't even think about hair styles that have come and gone, but I'm definitely considering going back to the bowl cut! We'll see... 

Santina said...

I think I like the second one better, as well. I remember being quite proud of myself for mixing prints! 

Santina said...

I agree with you; I definitely look much happier!

It is a tie. But I love layering so maybe I'll veer towards Portland. Oh who am I kidding? I love the simple polka/stripe combo of the beach!

 while it serves a good purpose in both, i gotta say, i like it paired with the stripes!!!! plus, you look so happy in the sand :)

Tanvi said...

 OMG! Look so different in both the shots!!! I like them both ... Really do!

Oh, this is a fun feature! I know you're going to miss Mexico, but I'm excited to see how your style evolves once you're settled in San Fran. I have to say, I really like both stylings, especially the skirt with the denim blazer. You did a great job styling the skirt for the sand though. A+ for the pattern mixing :)

You look totally different in both.  I can't even decide which I like better.   Both are adorable pictures!!

I think both girls wore it awesome. One is uptown chic, and the other is beach bomb.

I love this comparison. I am beyond curious to see how your style will evolev again once you are back in the U S of A.....

City Santina & Sunshine Santina both pull this skirt off marvelously. Though, I do have to say that your face looks so full of sincere joy while you're standing on the beach.  

Santina said...

I knew you wouldn't be able to resist those stripes, Bella! 

Santina said...

I'm so happy you like it! I was surprised at how many items I could feature, so stay tuned for more!

I almost forgot about that denim blazer. I look forward to seeing it again...and given the weather in SF right now, I'll be wearing it! 

Santina said...

"Beach bomb"? Thank you, Vanessa! 

Santina said...

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Bonnie! 

Santina said...

I do love the beach! Not to mention that it was raining while we snapped that photo in Portland. At that point, I already knew I was moving to Mexico, and I just remember being so over the weather!

Soon enough, Jentine...soon enough!
