I’m going to be honest – I’m a little tired of blogging polka dots. But, I might as well finish out the week, especially since this outfit is a patriotic nod to Memorial Day.
I bought this shirt when I was in grad school (and about 20 pounds heavier), but since it ties in the back, it works at many different sizes. It looks really cute when it’s freshly ironed.
I hardly wear it, though, because it’s linen, so freshly ironed lasts for about three minutes. And as the day goes on, I look more and more pregnant (empire waists have a tendency to do that), and the ends start to curl, causing it to hang weird. So, keep this image I took first thing fresh in your mind, and don’t look at me the rest of the day.
As a bonus today, I’m throwing in a picture of my face. You all know there is nothing I hate more than selfies – there is a reason my head is cut off in every post I ever show you. But, I really liked the red lipstick with this outfit, so I thought I’d show you. This picture is the best out of like 10, and my nose still looks like it’s taking over my face, but I do like the lipstick. The things we do for our fashion blogs. (Oh, and these curls are my favorite pinterest headband curls. SO EASY. Here’s the tutorial.)
