When I was younger, maybe sixth grade, my mother had my sisters and I be cheerleaders. My step-sister was made to be a cheerleader. My little sister? Maybe. Me? Well, I only wanted to for the cute uniforms, but we got ugly hand-me-down bulky sweaters. I looked like Sandy from Grease, but not as pretty.

Anyways, at the end of the season they held a huge award ceremony. I wore this beautiful white dress with extreme detailing at the bodice. I had a knee length coat and I wore bright red shoes. I was eleven, okay? And I thought I looked pretty great and I'm pretty sure my mom helped dress me. I was in the bathroom at the ceremony and all of these eleven year old mean girls were in there laughing. Laughing at me. When I was walking out, she said, "YOU'RE DUMB! RED DOESN'T GO WITH WHITE. HA! YOU LOOK SO STOOOOPID. RED AND WHITE. HAHAHAHAHAHA. UGGGGG-LYYYY. LIKE YOU! "

I learned a valuable lesson in that bathroom and I never cheered again. That's when I decided to wear whatever I wanted to wear because mean girls will always be mean girls and red and white totally go together. It's part of the American flag, right? Plus I heard she never made it to college and has a lot of kids. Karma is real guys, really real.

  13. Pssh, please, of course red and white go together! and yes, mean girls will ALWAYS be mean. The people who bullied me when I was younger didn't go to Uni and are all freaking badly dressed losers now.

  14. Aaaawww kids can be such bullies. But i love red and white combo's. And this whole look is darling for Valentines day!

    xoxo mama wolf.

  15. Wow, children are awful aren't they?? Red doesn't go with white?? Seriously.
    Well I may not be a cool kid but I LOVE that dress & it looks amazing with the red xo

  16. Little girls can be such creeps! I'm sure you looked adorable, and red TOTALLY goes with white. I love your outfit here. You look lovely, as always.

  17. hahaha. yeah. girls are kind of terrible. i want to have children, but i fear having a little girl because i don't think my explanation to all her troubles can be "well, honey, everyone's a bitch." i think i need some time to figure that one out.

    red and white do totally go together? 11 year olds.

    yeah. little girls still say stuff about me. i was wearing a dress in the grocery store the other day, and a 7 year old started pointing at me and saying "that lady has no pants." her mom was trying to get her to shut up while she asked like 8 times why i didn't have pants on. i was laughing hysterically.

    anyhow - i love that dress - the polka dot bottom is the best! and it's super cute on you.

  21. you look absolutely amazing!!! Love your dress and cardi!! People are always going to be mean so wear what you like to wear:)

  22. As someone who had a pretty miserable elementary and high school experience, I can totally testify to the fact that karma ALWAYS seems to dole out justice after graduation. Glad you learned to always wear exactly what you want, because you have amazing style and I'm sure that bitch can't get out of her velour sweatpants now if her life depended on it. This is beautiful, I love the nod to V-Day and you look beyond adorable!

  25. Oh my...well, what do they know!! Apparently not much. This sounds like my elementary/high school experience as well. Red and white are gorgeous together, especially when a part of a darling outfit like yours. I was a cheerleader too...though I don't always admit it:) Quite perfect as always darling! xx Marisa

  26. What nonsense! Girls can be so evil, and many times don't grow out of it! I bet she wears sweat pants every day and can't run a comb through her hair because of all the baby spit up ;)

  27. Aw you look so cute here! I love the polka dots and red cardi.
