The Dotted Line

Wearing – Blazer: Banana Republic Factory {not available online} | Top: J.Crew Factory | Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bracelet | J.Crew Factory {identical here} | Clutch: Saks Fifth Avenue {old}

I couldn't help but laugh at myself when I was coming up with this "clever" title. Polka dots and stripes apparently equate to the dotted lined in my mind. Oh to be in my head...it's a scary place let me tell you. There are thoughts just streaming in from nowhere that are complete nonsense to anyone but me. Ask Kacie, she'll tell you about my randomness.

On a fashionable side note–when shopping with a friend, I picked up this adorable polka dot blazer at Banana Republic Factory and couldn't wait for the weather to cool down so I could break this baby out. Well, lets just say it's mid-September and the weather feels more like October, and I still can't put away my tank tops and summer clothes. So basically what I'm saying here is that I wanna keep summer around, but am yearning for fall weather. I'm a walking-talking contradiction, what more needs to be said? Needless to say when I picked up this bejeweled top later at J.Crew, I knew the blazer and top would be perfection together. Enter one sleepy day after the Cancer Gala later, this outfit was busted out of the closet for a fun fall-inspired look.

Hopefully you enjoyed my ramblings and my furry photo bomber, Lola!

    1. Thanks Jessi! I wanted this jacket so bad because I love polka dots, but the shirt was too perfect underneath, with the added bonus of a bejeweled neckline too!

    1. Thanks Jacqueline! I wear it straight and curly and have definitely come to like it better curly. Sadly I have natural curly hair but prefer to use a flat iron or wand to curl it.
