polka dots and arm candy [inspiration]

It's been a while since I've last been on here, but that's a good thing. I've been doing a whole lot of living and enjoying these last few weeks of summer and gearing up for the fall! I just returned from a long weekend in Kansas City, MO where these photographs were taken, and I wanted to put them online asap!

This look is completely inspired by Elise of Seams Deep. I met her back in August at the Chicago Blogger Meet Up organized by the amazing Lisa of Archives Vintage. I could not get enough of Elise's positive outlook on everything from fashion to pursuing her dreams openly and passionately. She put together this amazing outfit inspired by polka dots and wrist candy, and with a look this good, how could I resist. Thanks girl!!

A big thanks to Lisa and Tabitha for organizing such a fabulous event and for introducing me to so many amazing local ladies!!
