Wore to Work: Polka Dots

I was having a Polka Dot kind of day, I own enough Polka dots to have a different outfit each day but I thought that would be a bit much. I wonder if anyone in my office would even notice?

Hmm, perhaps an experiment is in my future.

Purpose: To identify who really pays attention to the details of someone’s attire.

I’ll have to draft my thesis on this matter some other time… What are your thoughts?




Outfit Details:
Dress: Max Studio via Marshalls

TJ Maxx: Polka Dot Gladiator

Cheers! It’s Thirsty Thursday, a phrase I lived by from twenty one years of age to my late twenty’s…… Who am I kidding I still love Thirsty Thursdays just don’t partake as much as I’d like too. I can’t quite hang the way I used to in my younger years, but a happy hour from time to time with friends does the trick to turn a frown upside down after a stressful work week.

I have also found that ‘Shop Therapy’ helps a bad day, typical for those of us with a shopping addiction. I’m sure you’re not surprised that my bad days lead me to the mall, even if its just to wander around aimlessly from purses to shoes to accessories to clothes…and clear my head of the “work junk.”

My therapy sessions typically take place at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Target, I know what you’re thinking going to the gym and hopping on the treadmill can shake the stress away too, but that doesn’t make me want to jump out of bed the next morning seize the day and declare, “I can’t wait to wear my new polka dot skirt!!” Like shopping does πŸ˜‰

Needless to say I bought that polka skirt and I had a great day yesterday! Feeling good about what you are wearing does amazing things for your psyche and shopping at TJ Maxx didn’t hurt my wallet either. For $130.00 I came home with:

-Max Studio Polka Dot skirt $19.99
-Olive and Oak orange blouse $19.99
-Olive and Oak Coral Blazer $20.00
-DKNY Boyfriend Jeans $29.99
-Tinseltown Jean Jacket $24.99
-Say What Coral and Tan Cardigan $14.99

Nothing releases feel good endorphins like a new outfit or two! Happy Thursday!
