Last week, a new boss was hired at work. Today we had a big kick-off which was really a meet-the-boss situation. I knew it was going to be a long, boring morning (which it was) so I had to plan accordingly. I decided to wear this dress that I purchased circa 2006. I rarely wear it, and I am certain I have not worn it for the past 2 years. It is a wrap dress and it is made of silk so it isn't very practical AND the silky material frequently comes untied. I knew today would involve a lot of sitting, so I figured it was safe. Plus, I am trying to wear all my white clothes one last time before August ends on me unexpectedly and I am thrust into fall colors. To be EXTRA safe, I wore a white cami underneath and was glad I did because the top of the dress begins to creep open after an hour or 2 of wear. My hair got a little wild and BIG (as you can see!) in the humidity and I was squinting a bit in the sun, so again, not the best pictures but you get the idea of the ensemble!
I know you are looking at these pictures and thinking, "those are giant circles, not polka dots!" and you are absolutely correct! I really wanted to have a polka-dotty post, though, and since it is my blog, for today, these will be polka dots. :) Everything I am wearing here is old, and while I just bought the shoes last spring, they are no longer available, unfortunately. But, I'm glad I had a chance to wear it all one last time before summer ends.
