Obsessed with Polka Dots! (OOTD Tuesday)

Well well well, long time no see my little blog! I just returned from my last trip just yesterday (Monday) and after a whole week away from the office, I was back at work today! I've been away for so long and this last trip really wiped me out (helllo crazy allergic reaction that made me sick the ENTIRE TRIP) but I am going to try to catch up this week with all of my end of June posts!

Onto the exciting part of today- the clothes!

  • Dress & Blazer: Liz Claiborn via jcp
  • Pearl Necklace: first strand from mom when I was in college
  • Earrings: Birthday present from mom (different than the ones pictured here because I forgot to change them before I took the picture)
  • Rings: VT Class Ring & David Yurman Petite Wheaton in Black Onyx
  • Shoes: (not pictured) Nine West via DSW
  • Nail Polish: Sephora by OPI in "I'm Wired"
I absolutely love polka dots and so when I saw this blazer with the lining with polka dots, I knew I had to have it! The blazer is a tad big on me since I bought it before I lost about 15-18lbs so I will definitely have to get it tailored soon! I love this outfit because it is so simple yet so professional, sophisticated, and feminine all at the same time! The dress was definitely comfortable which will be key this week as I am moving offices (ugh cleaning and packing my office that is filled with 3 years of stuff) temporarily while the main floor is being renovated in the law firm where I work.

My sweet Rusty after picking him up from boarding yesterday! We played so much when we got home, he was pooped!

 Good to know the North Carolina Bar Association knows how to spell my name after all these years..

Rusty LOVES the drive home from daycare! He's been extra happy and attached to me since I got back from this last trip on Monday and I wouldn't have it any other way!
 What are your thoughts on polka dots? Do you love them as much as I do?


  1. I looked at the certificate and thought, "That's not your dad's name." Silly North Carolina.

    1. haha I know right!!! Massive NCBA fail!
