Hey Dolls,

How was your weekend?  What did you all do in celebration of Memorial Day?  Well, it stormed ( Tropical Storm Beryl) all Sunday and Monday so I was pretty much stuck in the house.  One thing Florida weather can assure is rain!  Anywho,  here is what I wore to work today!

I’m also participating in Work it Wednesday over at A Little Bit of Lacquer and The Pleated Poppy.
I absolutely fell in love with this dress when I first laid eyes on it.  I think the colors are perfect for spring/summer.  Of course, it is sleeveless, so to make it work appropriate, I added the blazer.  The classroom can get a bit chilly so I was okay while inside but whew when I go outside and that heat hits me, the blazer comes off!!!

SIDE NOTE:  I wish I had those ZARA Orange and black sandals to go with this dress.  They were sold out in my size online.  BUMMER!!!

Dress: Bebop via Ross
Blazer:  Thrifted (Talbots)
Heels:  Bamboo via MJM
Accessories:  Rue 21
We are seriously counting down the days until summer break!!!  Tomorrow will be the last day we have the students for a full day.  Friday and the rest of next week will be half days!!!  Then school will be out for a much needed break!

Ok lovelies, have a fabulous day!  I’ll be back soon.

    I just know you're ready for summer break! You look so cute. It rained here on Memorial Day but that didn't stop us. I was outside cooking under an umbrella. Thankfully the rain didn't last too long. Enjoy the last days of school.

    I can't believe the summer vacation days are coming right on up! Love this dress, I can see why you wanted it immediately… Trice, do you want me to check out my local Zara for those shoes? The last time I was in there I saw a lot of them, it was around mother's day…let me know! I can pick them up for you and send it your way…

    That dress is all that, but those shoes caught my eye big time!! You look great! And I know what you mean, it's even getting hotter than crap here in the north. I don't even know how I'm gonna handle myself when I get to San Antonio in a few days. I have the weather for it on my phone and it is freaking HOT there! Plus humidity – my poor hair!Are you going to Texas during summer at all?? I'll be there for almost all of June.

    You look amazing! Ross does have really great dresses but there are often just too many for me to pick through so I end up throwing in the towel. I love how you made it work appropriate by adding the blazer too. And wow, you guys get out of school EARLY-we still have another week left in my area and I.CAN.NOT.WAIT for summer break!
