Plays and polka dots

This is what I wore to go see the play "The Mountaintop" in Charlotte. (I totally thought this ruched top hid my baby bump, and now that I'm looking at the pictures, I'm like "not so much.")

The play was really powerful. It takes place in a hotel room on Martin Luther King's last night alive and centers on a conversation between him and a hotel maid who brings him room service coffee. I saw it with three friends, one of whom I never see, so that made it all the more awesome. 

This shirt was an eBay purchase that resulted from my stalking Anthropologie items. That store is so damn expensive, but I love its aesthetic so I prowl eBay and see what I can find. I found this adorable top -- please note the teeny tiny polka dots. The necklace is a Christmas present from my sister. The lipstick is bright red because that's how I roll these days.

 Here is my very versatile, thrifted jean jacket. The clogs are also second-hand, and I wore them because I knew we'd be walking around downtown a ton. Danskos, people, they keep your feet from hurting. That's why all the nurses and teachers wear them. (But one of my pairs is falling apart, which saddens me so!)

This skirt is first-hand and flows fabulously in the wind. I should pretty much wear it any windy day I'm planning to be outside. I just love its windswept look!

I LOVE those red flats! I need to look into Dansko because I am a committed member of the sensible shoes club. Also red lipstick and polka dots, yay :) I wish I lived in your city so I could go see the play.

Polka dots, red shoes and a denim jacket. Perfection.
