Chattanooga Polka Dots


Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I have to say, I had one of the busiest yet. I love being hyper-scheduled so it felt right at home with me. On Friday, Steve and I enjoyed another restaurant week offering (you will hear about this for sure- totally tasty). Then we went down to the Exit/In to see Built to Spill. Those guys are still one of my favorites and put on an amazing show. Saturday we went to the Tennessee State Fair in the morning so I could enter the hula hoop competition. I lost to 5th graders but had a good time doing it. The fair itself was pretty lame compared to the Wilson County Fair. Later in the day we went to watch the Nashville Roller Girls in their final home bout of the season. It was a bittersweet affair, because the lovely Hildabeast is retiring. Good thing they went out with a bang and totally slammed the Quad Skate Terrors! Then we rushed on over to the 5 Spot to see a secret Wanda Jackson show! That lady is still the Queen of Rock 'n Roll at any age. She came out all big hair, red lips and fringe shirt and blew my mind. Sunday was less exciting, consisting of a 10 mile walk, some bridal crafting with a friend who is getting hitched next weekend and a huge elaborate dinner that I decided to make.


This is the outfit I wore on our day trip a few weeks ago to Chattanooga (there were some slight peeks of it here).  I spent a good chunk of the day in the car so I wanted to make sure I was wearing something really comfortable. I'm not really one to sacrifice comfort for fashion, ever. Most of these pieces are fairly old and are good standbys.


Dress: Forever 21 (from like, 10 years ago)
Tights: Forever 21
Shoes: Blowfish
Necklace: Super Old
Ring: H&M

What did you all do this weekend? 
xoxo Lauren

  6. Man, I don't know why but for some reason I keep missing your posts!
    That's so awesome that you were able to see the amazing Wanda Jackson! I've never seen her live before and that is something that seriously needs to happen before it's too late, I'm already so bummed that I never got to see Janis Martin :(
