The hardest part about working Monday through Friday, is by far dealing with how short the weekends feel. This past weekend was honestly wonderful, and I couldn't stand to see it end. One of the most exciting parts was getting to meet up with Erica in LA and attend Modcloth IRL with her on Saturday. I had met Erica in person about a year ago, and after hanging out with her again over the weekend, I'm beginning to think that I was crazy for not making it a point to see her all the time. She's the the best, and we had an absolute blast together. I have a bunch of pictures from the Modcloth event, so I think I'm going to try to do a post on it, but it was great. There were gorgeous dresses on display and ready to try on, jewelry and vintage clothes to buy, and adorable Modcloth employees to chat with. Erica and I both fangirled over meeting Susan Kroger, Modcloth's co-founder, and Winston, that adorable pug mascot. I'll try to post all of my photos this week, but the meantime, check out my Instagram for a few photos.
This outfit was one that I wore to work last week, and it's a new favorite of mine. I love the mustard color of this top and the scalloped detail is beautiful. It's nice not having a dress code for work, but part of me does kind of wish I had an excuse to challenge myself more with business professional attire. Though I have to admit, I like the fact that someone in my office building most likely thinks of me "that girl in the polka dot dress." I wouldn't be surprised.
The rest of the weekend was filled with my best friend's birthday party, a date night, visiting my parents again, and of course, Game of Thrones. Spending quality time with a guy is cool and all, but Game of Thrones is back, and nothing else matters.
