Little Picnic Lady

Details: Dress/F21 , Shoes/Jeffrey Campbell, Earrings/Dinosaur Toes, Belt/Vintage(etsy), Glasses/Rayban Cateye

This weekend flew by! I feel like I say that every week, but I think it still surprises me for some reason. I wore this out on Friday night when I went out with one of my good friends from college, Marissa. This was the night I looked like a human picnic table. I really love mixing patterns, and I think polka dots (red ones at that) can be tricky to match. I wore this dress in the city when Amy came to visit and I forgot how much I loved it. It was one of those impulse buys because we were stuck in 90 degree weather with long sleeves. Regardless, I am glad I got it because it's lightweight, and perfect for the summer. Plus, in what world don't gingham and polka dots match? 

The rest of the weekend was spent somewhat relaxing. I worked all day on Sunday at my second job, and Saturday was spent at the beach in Sea Bright, NJ. My friend Lena was celebrating her birthday this weekend, so we had a girls beach day and I got to see some friends I haven't seen in a long time. It was the first time all summer that I actually felt myself relaxing, enough to even fall asleep on the beach. The only complaint I have about the weekend, is that it came to an end. I hope you all had great plans, and here's to a new week, with new adventures!
