Third Grade

1.18.12a
1.18.12c
1.18.12b{Sweater, Chambray Shirt, Similar Jeans, Similar Wedges}
Let’s be honest — I would have gladly worn this outfit in third grade. Of course I would have most likely won best dressed for third grade; I judge this mainly on the basis that most 8 year olds don’t wear heels and I don’t have lunch crusted on my face. Now that I think about it, I’d pretty much face off with a third grader any day of the week on any topic besides Geography (simply because I realized where Hawaii was just this year and I don’t own map pencils). But even as a 27 year old, it feels good to be wearing hot pink pants with a polka dot sweater AND to know where Hawaii is on a map. 
Elementary my friends, elementary.

    LOVE this outfit. The pants are such a great pop of color and I’m crazy for polka dots. Also, I’m embarrassingly terrible at geography. Take those mid-west states, for example. Couldn’t name them if my life depended on it.

    My 8 year old would give you a gold star for the hot pink pants and of course for the heels…but I’m afraid she wouldn’t give you the full prize because, in her words, “You don’t match.”  Apparently to 8 year olds (at least the one in this house), the epitome of fashion is wearing an outfit that is from head-to-toe the exact same color. AKA “the pimp suit”.

I’m pretty sure that was the year that I once walked to the front of the room without realizing my plaid pleated skirt was tucked into my sweater tights. Yep, that actually happened to me. :)

  48. I actually did win “Best Dressed” in third grade. I won it for my cow vest, jangly cowbell earrings, and chicken bag ensemble I called my, “Farm Girl” look. I really wanted to win the “Best Handwriting” award, but looking back, I’m pretty proud I fashion-peaked at the age of eight.

    I love the graphic print of that sweater! You don’t see a lot of large polka dot prints, do you?

    I loooove the hot pink and navy combo. And of course anything with polka dots is automatic bonus points. I was listening to an 8-year-old tell me that since her dad is from Miami, he visited Florida all the time, to which I responded, “that makes sense!” So I don’t think my grasp on Hawaii is quite as good as I thought it was.

    Love the colors! I actually have that sweater from Old Navy! I LOVE IT! Doesn’t it make you wonder why colorful outfits seem to be child-like? Why can’t we adults enjoy bright colors mixed around? You should see all the spring clothes coming out in the stores; citrus bright – it’ll be a bright spring!

    I saw this sweater at Old Navy, it reminded me of the Madewell polka dot sweater, but I was too lazy to try it on and didn’t buy it. Regretting it!

    I just have to say…I love all of your style. I am a thrifter and it has been great to be inspired by your posts. I was about to bite the bullet and just buy something online (the above blue polka-dotted pullover), but it is no longer available on Old Navy online (or I just couldn’t find it). Anyway…you are awesome and thanks again for all of the inspiration.

    I love that polka dot sweater, it’s such a good pattern to have in your closet! And I have been wanting some bright red pants but you might have just convinced me that hot pink would be an awesome choice instead!

  155. I live with a third grade girl and it’s funny,  there is a big pink back lash among the 8 year old set. Pink pants are so second grade!!! Trend or not, there will be NO pink anywhere for my third grader. But for me? Now that’s a different story. I saw the rainbow of colorful pants at the H&M downtown and can’t wait to get a pair.

    This outfit reminds me of the movie “Grease” for some reason, which is a compliment I love that movie! Probably the pink with the polka dots, it has a 60’s vibe. Love it!

    Oh my goodness, this outfit totally just made me remember my favorite 3rd grade outfit– a black short-jumper with primary colored polka dots and little plastic heart buttons. Which I wore with lace trimmed socks and patent leather Mary Janes, of course. Because I was a stylin’ third grader. I LOVED that thing.  Thanks for the memory blast from the past :) Now I want to dress like a third grader…
