There's a quirky charm in polka dots that i kinda dig which is why it didn't take me long to decided on whether or not i needed another polka dotted skirt among other things from H & M. I broke down and decided to get it because everyone needs a polka dotted skirt right?
I kept the outfit super simple because, i wanted the polka dots to pop during their first exposure. I definitely can't wait to play around with this skirt in the coming months.

Blouse and Skirt- H&M, Shoes- Miss Me
This weekend was one of the busiest ever! Planning and executing an event for over 50people is quite a feat. I didn't even make it out to any of the numerous festivities this weekend. I kept my outfit basic for saturday as i ended up just running errands, wearing a silk blouse from urban, a thrifted black skirt from oldnavy and black micheal kors heels that i don't wear often enough. I did end up changing into flats though.

I wear stripes alot! My favorite striped combo till date, is wearing it with this electric blue skirt, plus the skirt has pockets. LOVE! For something a litte different, i've worn my peachy platforms. Just to add a different twist of color.

Ok guys, i'm trying out something new here...please weigh in with your thoughts and opinions... Thanks in advance.

I've decided to do a weekend activity guide for Atlanta, as well as hidden treasures to check out Atlanta... Nothing major, just a few different spots here and there that i think might be of interest to my readers in the A, or who are visiting the A.
I am open to suggestions and ideas as i explore the city with my NEW CAMERA courtesy of the boyfriend for my birthday (Thank you LUV!!!)
As far as why i've decided to do this, i try to plan my weekends during the week(to give me something to look forward) and figured someone else would benefit from my hardwork...Oh the things i do for you guys...:-)

Hi guys!!!
I promise you i'm still alive. Its just gotten hella busy around these parts... with school in overdrive as we're counting down to the end of the semester, this past few days have been a fury of tests, papers and projects. GRRR.
I wore this outfit because the African Student Association had an event scheduled on Wednesday last week. I didn't even get a chance to go and show the outfit off because i had to spend the day holed up writing a 10-page paper...GRRRR. I guess i'll show it off to you guys :-)
I'm also going to get sappy for a minute as i just want to thank my lovely readers who continue to read and comment. It is much much appreciated!!

My "bustier top" is actually this romper, worn under a skirt. And this jean top, is my new spring/summer cover-up/cardi. I've been wearing it over absolutely everything. And will probably take it to the beach in a few weeks.

Jean Top- Walmart, Romper- Anthropologie, Skirt- Macys, Flats- Wanted
I knew that from the moment i saw this dress, way back in october, that it was going to be my Easter dress. I've worn it once before due to my impatience because I didn't want to wait till April to finally wear this dress. You guys know i'm a big fan of the 50's silhouette, so anything that allows me to channel that is gold in my book.

Oh the glorious weather that comes with the arrival of spring. Atlanta's finally getting a taste of that sweet sweet gorgeous weather that comes with spring. It feels like people are in better moods and spirits appear to be lifted. I'm loving it all...And I'm definitely ready for the weekend!

Cardi- Poof Excellence, Dress- F21, Boots- Rugged
