Bright Blue + Polka Dots

Denim: J. Crew // Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft // Shoes: Madewell (similar) // Scarf: Nordstrom B.P department 

It's safe to say that these Madewell flats are my favorites. They're comfortable, can go dressy or casual, and hello; they're purple. Polka dots are also a fave around here.  They're classic with a touch of whimsy.

This week was pretty crazy, so I'm glad to see it come to an end. I had a few huge projects for school that I will be showing you next week. I think I spend a total of 12 hours on one project alone! Now that's dedication, right?!  Today my best friend Ashley is flying into Los Angeles from Michigan. It's been a few months since I've seen her last, so excited is an understatement! We'll be having a girls night tonight in Santa Monica, then waking up early and hitting the road for Santa Barbara, where we're attending Megan's bridal shower. It's sure to be a beautiful day, just like the bride-to-be. I can't wait to see everyone and give them big hugs.  Follow me on instagram for lots of pictures of the day {michaelanoelle}

Saturday night I'll be driving home to the Bay Area for the holidays. My family and sweet puppy will be waiting.  I'm more excited for this holiday than ever before, and I can't put my finger on why. I think growing up and experiencing Christmas as an adult, but still incorporating the things we did as children is so fun. What do you think? When I come back to Los Angeles in January, I can't wait to show you my new apartment. It's a quaint studio with exposed cement and duct work.  It's a DREAM! You'll get to see the entire apartment this time :) There was a bit of a life update for you!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Don't forget to get started on your Holiday Vignette {any extra holiday decor, tablescapes, etc) and Christmas Apparel {DIY accessories, holiday party outfits, hair styles, jewelry, anything!} for next week's link parties.
