Polka Dot Top, Red Cardigan, Black Shorts, Heart Tights, & Studded Loafers

I wore this delightfully red and black outfit on Valentine's weekend. I guess I was in a red and black mood because that was basically everything I packed. It's not a bad thing though. That color combination is classic plus it's my school's colors. You have to admit that red and black is a great combination for school colors. Definitely more wearable than orange and blue or purple and yellow...

Anyway, this was just a casual outfit for wearing around Athens that weekend. I get a lot of use out of this polka dot blouse I thrifted a few years back. I like how it looks paired with red so that's exactly what I did. Then I added some thrifted black cut-offs (that are slightly too tight around the waist for ultimate comfort), black heart sweater tights, & my studded black loafers.

I spent a nice weekend with Matt but then I figured out how very little time I have to study for my comprehensive exams and how close spring break is. Oh no. My life, you guys. Whyyyy. But aside from the tragedy that is graduate school, I had a good weekend and will attempt to have a productive week. Let's hope that actually happens. 

I hope you guys are having a happy Monday!

Our school has a maroon-red and navy blue scheme too :D My faculty colors are green, purple and white though. And the awful kind of purple, so I'll never dress in my faculty colors. I'm loving this after-valentines day look ^^ Your tights are super cute! xo

heehee, you can never go wrong with black and red... I am pretty sure my entire wardrobe is 3/4 black and red clothing. It's pretty sad. :)

Those loafers are pretty snazzy, lady! I like how they parallel the spots on your top!

I love a red and black combo, especially with polka dots! You look fantastic. Ugh...I always have trouble with getting focused and being productive when it comes to school. Hope your week is going well!
