what i wore: polka dots

happy wednesday everyone! i hope your week has been good to you so far. today starts my 6 day work week...ugh. i am not looking forward to it at all but i gotta cover for my co-worker who is going out of town. wish me luck that i don't go crazy.
i wore this to work the other day. i love this dress but it wrinkles like crazy! i ironed it before work only for it to instantly wrinkle the moment i sat down. oh well. what can you do.
over the weekend, kelly-anne, gave me bride of frankenstein high lights and i really love them. they are fun and different. i dyed my ends to cover up the bleach but really could use a hair cute to just chop off the dead ends. soon, hair, soon. i can't wait for that day.
details:
dress: thrifted
top: uo
sandals: target (long time ago)
after these pictures were taken tom and i headed over to grab pho. if you have never tried pho, you better! it is sooo good and always super cheap too! i am a huge fan of soup, it always leaves you feeling warm and full in the greatest way. i want to eat pho everyday :D

  1. I love pho so much!! Chicken pho is the best, we went to Hanoi once and I ate it everyday even though it was super hot.

    I love that frock on you, poka dots are the best. It's a pity it crinkles so easily though - they should put warning labels on clothes that crinkle too much.

    I love the highlights too - the look great. I love doing fun new things with my hair:)

  7. I'm embarrassed to say I've never tried pho but it's been on my list for a long time! I need to get on that :) Very cute outfit- I love the button up shirt, it looks light and perfect for layering. Oh how I miss layers right now... just impossible in Phoenix this time of year. Love your hair!

  11. You can get through those 6 days! I'll send some positive vibes your way. I understand the issue of easy wrinkle items I have a shirt that I can iron the heck out of and wear it for a few minutes and it's already wrinkled to bits. I've bought starch before but it never did any good.

  12. I live in the Little Saigon section of San Diego, CA and we are about 2 blocks from 4 different Pho places. My favorite broth is at Pho Ca Dao, where i get the Pho Tofu. We go so often the guys know my order the moment we walk in!

    That dress is fantastical on you! Who cares if wrinkles? Maybe if you keep getting pho over the next 6 days work won't be so bad? Maybe add an order of veggie egg rolls and eat them with lettuce and mint. Because that is the only way to do it!
