If there's one thing I don't need, it's another polka dot dress. I'm very aware of the excess of polka dotted items I own, and I certainly had no intention of adding another one to my wardrobe any time soon. Of course, I probably should have known better. I've suddenly found myself living five minutes away from Buffalo Exchange, so on Friday, I headed there with a bag full of clothes to try and sell, and as usual, I wound up bringing most of it back home with me. They did take a handful of items, though, and I ended up with a little less than $30 in store credit. I tried on a pile of items that I loved on the hangers, but somehow, as fate would have it, the only dress that fit like a glove was...another polka dot dress. I've always thought about buying the Traveling Cupcake dress from Modcloth, but it's never quite made it past my shopping cart. So naturally, when something almost identical appeared at that Buffalo Exchange in my size, in perfect condition, and fit like a glove for only $12, there was no getting around it. It had to be mine, excessive polka dot collection be damned.
I wore this the next day for a day of shooting pictures around a downtown area with my friend Casey. The Orange Circle, which is part of Old Town Orange and is filled with restaurants and antique stores, will forever be one of my favorite places in Orange County. This past Saturday was my first Saturday off in months, so it was nice to get to walk around, grab lunch and ice cream, and take pictures with a friend. Ice cream, old fashioned soda, greenery at old church, and an extremely sunny day? I'd say it was a first Saturday off well spent.
In other news, today is my first day of work! I can't wait to tell you all about next time. In the mean time, check out the gorgeous ring I'm wearing in these photos and get pumped for a giveaway with Tiny Mountains coming up.
