Does anyone else dress up a little more when it is nice out? I do for sure! Not only was today a nice day to pull out this skirt from last season for these warmer temperatures, but I had good intensions of looking presentable for work. No a business suit was just a little to stuffy for me today. I don’t know about you guys, but when someone important will be making an appearance in the same building, I tend to make sure I look professional. Not that I don’t look professional every other day at the office it is just a ‘thing’ I have always done. I have never really discussed my full time job over here on the blog, but today at work the BIG boss was coming into the office. Big boss as in the Commissioner of CBP (Customs Border Protection) was actually coming to our office for a brief moment. By brief, I mean maybe 5 minutes tops to speak to all of us quickly and back to my desk I went. Point being, I have always found it important to present yourself for the job and life you want to live. Of course I was not going to have tea and talk shop with the big boss, but I always want to carry myself in a professional manner and my attire is the key to doing that in a office setting.
For my professional office look today, I stuck with my favorite pattern, polka dots! This skirt I absolutely love and adore each and every time I put it on. This top, well it speaks for itself. In keeping both pieces polka dots I decided to tone down the look with a solid cardigan over top. Have I mentioned lately I love wearing nude heels because if you are vertically challenged like myself, it will elongate your legs instantly. On the flip side my legs are in desperate need of a tan. Eeekkkks! As for accessories, I kept it very simple and clean, nothing to flashy. And that is positively polka dots folks!
Everyone excited for the weekend? It goes by way to fast but oh how I love those two days off work. 🙂 Anyone have fun plans? I always love hearing about what you’re doing for the weekend!

Hello Monday! Hoping you all had a great weekend. Only one more weekend before Christmas! Are you ready for the holidays? Well, if you follow me on Instagram you saw my Holiday party look already, but here is more of my look. I wanted to share a more detailed post of my holiday look to give you any last minute details you might need for your holiday parties. This midi skirt…..oh this midi skirt! Many months have past by with me not taking the plunge to purchase a midi skirt. Finally, I had to add it to the wardrobe. I LOVE this skirt. Just makes you want to twirl around all night long.
For my husband’s holiday work party we headed to the casino and hotel down in French Lick, Indiana. It was my husbands first time here and my second time. We had so much fun and we are not even big gamblers. 🙂 Of course, no big winnings for us. However, I sure can make five bucks last a while on a penny slot. Any who, this skirt was perfect to be comfortable yet dressed up for the holiday party. This polkadot shirt and striped Kate Spade bag are perfect prints to pair with my new black midi skirt. If you are still looking for a black midi skirt, this one is still available at H&M! This week I will also share our adventures to the other beautiful hotel in the area, The West Baden.

Its Saturday and I am posting! Today I will share my love for polka dots. They are just so happy and can cheer up any outfit. Today I chose to pair my favorite polka dot shirt with my safari vest, jeans and my cognac mules. This outfit was quick, easy and I ended up loving it.
This necklace is one of my new favorite pieces of jewelry. I got it a few weeks ago from New York & Company when they were having 1/2 of jewelry. Yes please! They currently have a similar version on sale for $12!
Have you ever tried a pair of mules? This being my first pair to try, I picked these up at Forever 21 back in spring/summer since they are lower cost. They are great for the fall to help transition from summer to fall. They look great with skirts and pants.
This photo shoot also called for Lilly to be in a few pictures. She has relevance to todays post, her name. Her full name is Lilly Polkadot. I know. I know. I told you earlier I love polka dots! Hope you are all having a great start to your weekend. This weekend here in Indy is going to be perfect fall weather.
What are your plans this weekend?
