Peeking Dots

I think it's time I renamed my blog, Clothes with Polka Dots, don't you think?  Don't worry, I have SO much more dotted clothes that you haven't seen yet...

{Dress & Belt: gift from Taiwan, Shoes: JCrew (old), Watch: Marc Jacobs, BraceletsDavid Yurman, Nordstrom}

Friday Love-It Notes!

1.  This weekend marks one year since my husband and I purchased our first house.  What an amazing experience.  Though paying a mortgage is not my idea of fun, being able to design and decorate together (mostly me doing the work) and create memories to last a lifetime is just priceless.

2.  Tomorrow I am going to one of my good friend's bachelorette party.  What we are doing is a surprise for the bride, so I won't spoil it, but if you want see the fun first hand, be sure to follow me on Instagram (@alwaysmaylee)!

3.  Snickers cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.  Seriously, that thing is just heavenly.  Yum.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Ok seriously where do you find these amazing polka dot and bow things??? I love everything about this outfit. PS- congrats on being a homeowner! Although my boyfriend already had bought his house when I moved in, we did a lot of redecorating and it's so much fun to style our home in a way that reflects both of our personalities. I would have never thought I'd enjoy home projects as much as I do! (Pinterest probably helps).

I just love the little peek-a-boo that the polka dots are doing. So fresh and young! And I can't even imagine having a house, it woudl be heaven! I'm getting really sick of my forest green cabinets with floral wall paper inside of them...along with my deadly white walls. So extremely jealous

Oh and I loooooove polka dots, so I can't wait to see more!

P.S. Enjoy the bachelorette party and congrats on the 1 year with your house. My husband and I were the complete opposite. He was the one that got into the design, the colors, the furniture -- all I cared about was the closet space. HAHA! :)

Is that a 1-piece dress or did you layer over a polka dot skirt/dress. Just curious. It's such an adorable look!

I'm currently renting (because we will get a new location in 2.5 years) & cannot wait for the day to purchase my own home. Mortgages might not be fun but at least the money you pay is not going to waste like it does with renting! *sigh* I'm so jealous!
