Grease Lightning

Staple Used: Polka Dot Skirt
Everything about this outfit is on trend from the neon and polka dots to the high-low hem and spiked heels. But when I put it on I felt like twirling as if I was a Pink Lady in the 1950s, especially when I topped it off with a leather jacket.

If the neon snakeprint looks familiar it might be because you remember it from this post. Yes, it’s actually a dress! Since my skirt has a decent amount of volume I was able to layer a dress underneath. I simply used some double-stick tape to temporarily hem the dress so the pink didn’t peek out below the polka dots.

Forever 21 high-low skirt and jacket, Rebecca Taylor dress worn as a top, lia sophia bracelet, silver bangles from Mexico, Sam Edelman Scarlett pumps

    Thanks! Mae, here are a couple options I found:

    A little lighter shade but I love the ruffles on this top:

    This high low dress could be super cute belted (or you can wear a skirt over like I did):

    @Hudsyn I found mine for a steal at DSW. I agree, they aren’t meant for walking. I wear them when I’m going somewhere I know I’ll be able to sit down for a bit. I just liked them so much I couldn’t resist!
