Polka Dots + Rainy Days

You would never know that it was starting to rain in these photos but we were seconds away from being drenched when we finally called it. We had this random downpour last week and when there was a small break in the clouds we knew we had about 5 minutes to shoot. Since we typically shoot outside most days, I’ve never been so into the weather in my life. Wind and rain can ruin a good outfit day in a second, so you better believe I am on top of that weather report. It’s always a shame to waste a good hair or outfit on a rainy day. (Now that I think about it, that’s usually how I know it’s raining outside; my hair will be impeccable.)
I spent the weekend with my college girlfriends at what will probably be my last wedding as a bridesmaid. I might have also pretended that I was 21 again and today I am very much feeling all 29 years of age today. How was your weekend, friends? Do anything fun?

    This look is gorgeous! I love the soft, neutral colors with your bright lip. I'm the same way–if my hair is perfect, it either means that the weather is awful outside or I don't have any plans for the evening 🙂 xx

    Kendi, I must ask–how do you get your hair in a bun?? My hair is about the same length as yours, and I can never seem to a. get all of my hair in a bun and b. have the bun be full, rather than sad-looking. Any hair secrets you don't mind sharing would be much appreciated!

    Also, love the outfit! Polka dots + red lips = perfection.

    I've seen the same (or similar) tote in Madewell and have been on the verge of buying it three times now! Guess that's a sign 😉
