This is one of those times when I really shouldn't be blogging. We've hit that point in the semester when every test, project, and paper is coming up, which means that my to-do list a mile long, and blogging should not be top priority. Naturally, I'll always find away to ignore the massive amount of studying I should be doing to write about polka dots and blazers instead. It's much more interesting than researching Japan's textile industry.
It's been a little while since I've worn polka dots on here, which means that it's been far too long for my liking. I thought this polka dot dress was a fun piece to wear under my new professional-looking blazer from Brag Vintage. Brag Vintage is a great British vintage shop, and I had the hardest time choosing my favorite piece. I ended up settling on this beauty because, despite my love of them, I hardly own any blazers. I have one black one that fits well, and I wear it death any time I have to look even semi-professional. I really love the color and shrunken feel to this one, so I know I'll be throwing it on for next presentation coming up in a class.
I should apologize that my posts have been so photo-heavy, but I'm incredibly indecisive. Mary and I have been having a blast scouting new locations, and when we drove past this mosaic (which I've seen a million times, but never really gave a second thought), we both knew it was perfect for this outfit.
Despite my workload piling up, I still managed to have a nice, relaxing weekend. I ended up staying in both Friday and Saturday nights, which was refreshing. I did go to a casino in Iowa for the first time since being legal with a few of my guy friends on Saturday, and I had a blast. I don't really trust myself to gamble, but the casino gave us each $10 to spend for signing up for player's cards, and it lasted me a few hours on the penny slots. I didn't come home with any winnings, but I managed to only spend $1 of my own money, so I'd say it was extremely successful.
