look book: spot dot

March 26, 2012

I love this dress with its black not-quite polka dot, and not quite animal spot print. Blacks and browns are two easy colors and when paired together I love how classic they look. Pairing a pop of color plays it back down to give a fun, laid-back vibe.
 
dress c/o Ladyee Boutique, jacket J.Crew, shoes Michael Kors, bee ring JewelMint

This weekend flew by, but with only one day it was understandable. All the things I wanted to get down Saturday got pushed to the back burner and I gave into a lazy day. Sunday was a travel day and I flew into Chicago for work. I'm only here for 2 short days but I'm already wishing for more time. This city is beautiful and I think we'd get along just right!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  30. It's pretty funny that you mentioned Chicago, because I was thinking of Chicago today! I've never been there myself, and in VA it was so windy today, and I was thinking of Chicago the 'windy city'! I hope you're having a good time there, even thought it's only 2 days.
    Love your outfit too, by the way. Then again, I love ALL your outfits!
