We’re torn between loving this Daisy Lowe polka dot skirt look and hating it. The 25-year-old sure put a lot of effort into dressing up for a walk-the-dog errand if this whole ensemble is anything to go by.

It also looks like she overthought it. The model wore a polka-dotted retro skirt featuring a flounce silhouette.

The midi skirt is undoubtedly cute. We also don’t mind the knotted sheer shirt, which, if we may add, Daisy has done so many times before already. It’s the shoes we can’t stand.

This would have been an adorable summer look, save for the combat boots. It made the outfit heavy and frumpy. We thought the model would have looked less drab with a pair of sandals or flats. She would have been more comfortable, too!

On the other hand, we like the intention of the top and skirt. We couldn’t find the make of the skirt, but similar midis are not hard to come by these days. Try the same combination with these pieces:
