I got lucky lucky at J Crew last weekend and managed to snag a couple of fun things on sale, so when we decided that this week's style challenge would be all about polka dots, I knew this skirt would be making it's debut. I happen to live near a shop that puts out balloons on the sidewalk everyday, so I decided to take advantage of the sidewalk decorations and include them in my photos today. After all, It's Friday and that sounds like a pretty great excuse for balloons to me.
I've been quite taken with photographic prints on fabric lately, so when I saw this skirt on sale I had to have it. I thought it couldn't hurt to have a little fun with the outdoor greenery theme on my skirt and so I created with this tonal green look. I think it was just what I needed on such a lovely spring day!
I got this dress because, well... it has bees on it. And as we all know, I'm a sucker for quirky prints. It's also really really comfortable which made me feel sort of like I was wearing pajamas to work (the drawstring doesn't help either), but I think the overall look is more 'laid back librarian' than 'girl that forgot to get dressed for work'. It was too chilly when I took these photos to show off the fun cut-outs in the back, but I assure you they are there and they are cool. I'm sure I'll wear it again when the weather warms up, so you'll just have to wait for the sequel.
I scored this little vintage dress a few weeks ago on Poshmark, and it is quickly becoming a favorite. I love the little square buttons! As for the rest of the outfit... it's sort of a mish-mash of old favorites. Hope your week is going better than mine so far. I think the rain in San Francisco has washed away all of my energy this week, so I am counting down to Friday!
Man, where did the weekend go?! I was not quite ready to face Monday, but here it is, so I'm determined to make the best of it, back to back meetings and all. I have to admit I'm really looking forward to this evening though... the Mister and I are going to see Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel!
Why hello there! It's been a while since my last post and I have to admit I don't have any great excuse to make up for my absence (other than my recent obsession with the Hunger Games books). The good news is I'm back, and I missed my little blog world dearly! Also worth mentioning, there are pretty rad little snails printed on my blouse in these photos. The past few weeks have been somewhat overloaded, and the weeks ahead promise more of the same... but I suppose it's better to be busy than bored. Here's to a productive weekend!
