Dots & Bows


Hey beautiful people! How was your weekend?


On Saturday, I attended a wedding ceremony after a few hours of work. I was extremely tired after work that all I wanted was to lay down and take a nap however, the wedding was too important . Despite being tired, I dressed up and headed to the wedding reception, which was great and beautiful. I got home around 12am.


On Sunday after church, my friend Vera picked me up and we went to a gathering. We spent about  two hours there before heading back to my place where we chatted late into the night. We were so engulfed in our conversation that we didn’t realize how late it was … definitely a fun evening and weekend.



Pardon me if you have been seeing this Zara bag a lot. I can’t help it as it fits everything I take with me. This bag is so big that it can fit a kid LOL! I carry a lot of junk in my bag.
I need to do another “What’s in my bag” post because you can find almost anything in my bag including my Ipad, a bottle of Aleve and packs of cookies (I take snacks everywhere I go–self-proclaimed foody! LOL)…






Outfit: JCrew Dress (here); Zara Bag (here); Michael Kors watch (here); Bracelet: Express (similar here or here); Miu Miu pumps (here); Nail polish (here); Necklace: H&M (similar here) Ring: Macy’s (old similar here)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! If you don’t mind sharing, what did you do?
Have a wonderful week!

    Isn't it the best when you can have long conversations with friends and lose track of time! It's the best. No pardon about the Zara bag, I'll wear it all the time too 🙂 You look fab as usually. Love the dots and gingham prints!

    wow! your mix of gingham and polka dots is just perfect. those miu miu heels are absolutely perfect – i love the tie backs so much. and your accessories are just lovely.weddings are fun, but i always hate feeling rushed by them. a lot of the ones that are after work or make you drive far between places make me a bit nervous because i dont want to be late and mess something up!
