Polka Dots? Yes, please!

We just touched down in Cali! We’re in San Diego for a couple days because we’re going to the Breeder’s Cup at Del Mar racetrack and then we’re going to drive up the coast and spend a couple more days in LA. I’ve never been to California at all before so this is a definitely a treat! Be sure to follow along on IG and Instastories because I will be sharing lots of god bits from our trip!  We spent the day today wandering around Pacific Beach and La Jolla.  Not bad for a Friday! 🙂

I packed this polka dot dress to wear to the horse races Saturday so I thought I would share some pics with you all from the last time I wore it to a party during Fashion Week.  I think the print and the ruffle layers make it so fun and the deep v gives it a little sass. This time around I will be wearing it with the tie sash it comes with around the waist, but here I decided to pair it with a statement belt. && guess what, it’s under $100! [wearing an xs]

It would make the perfect little dress to grab for a holiday party!  I suggest swapping the statement belt out for the ribbon tie belt the dress comes with and adding a fun pair of red earrings.  You could stick with a heeled OTK boot or go for heels depending on how formal your event is!  ps, these boots are on major sale and would be perfect.

Happy Friday, babes! We made it to the weekend yet again. Have a good one. Muah!

We spent this past weekend in Chicago and while we did get up and snap these pics one morning, I certainly did not sport this outfit for long–it was HOT!  I was really glad that we scheduled our boat tour early Saturday morning at 9am before the heat of the day.  Which, by the way, if you are in the city then I highly recommend!  We did the architecture river tour and the guide told us such interesting tidbits about the buildings without being the least bit boring and there was a full bar, air conditioning and bathrooms on the lower deck.  A view and a mimosa was the perfect start to the day!

But in contrast to the last few days, it is going to cool off soon [thankfully the forecast confirms this] & I cannot wait to pull out some of the layering pieces I have been collecting.  One of which is definitely this new grey, textured Rebecca Minkoff scarf from Nordstrom.  I have been stalking their accessories section of the site daily–seriouslyyy– because I know they have good options every year (think trend and quality combined) and I am beyond ready for Fall & Winter goodies!

It is no secret that I think a wrap like this is the perfect thing to have in anyones closet.  && once I saw the texture on this one I could not pass it up.  I love the shade of grey and how many different ways you can tie it. Plus–the material isn’t itchy, which is key!

Here are a few other options from Rebecca Minkoff..  I love each one!  It will be hard not to order a couple more of these, that’s for sure.

Below you can see how I’ll wear this piece: draped around my neck, over my shoulders as a wrap or wrapped up tightly for warmth.

Last night was our first night home with the animals after being away and I have to tell you, it was a good feeling to be back on the couch cuddled up with them watching Gossip Girl as I wrote this post.  We ordered pizza for dinner and skipped the workout.  Not bad for a Monday!  Hopefully I can get back on track today but I am always a firm believer to easing back into work after a great weekend away.  Hope you all are having a good week!
