Mock Turtleneck Sweater, Houndstooth Pencil Skirt, Polka Dot Tights, & a Blue Peacoat

Happy Saturday night everyone! I know I usually post outfits during the week, but I've been absent much of the past couple weeks so here is an outfit I wore in Illinois over spring break. It'll probably be one of the last cold weather outfits you see here for a while. I was wearing no jacket and no tights out at the botanical garden this afternoon. (Don't be too jealous. It'll probably be 90+ degrees and 100% humidity soon.) I enjoyed this combination of houndstooth and polka dots that I wore on my coffee/thrifting date with Marlen from Messages on a Napkin. I've actually worn a really similar outfit in a previous post. The snowy background in these pictures really is a great finishing touch on the season though! That bunch of snow we got up in Illinois was so pretty even though they were all so sick of snow.

As I'm sure you've surmised, I finished up my comprehensive exams yesterday. I don't know whether I actually passed or not  (and it'll be embarrassing if I don't), but they're behind me for now! This weekend has been really fun since I finished them. It's like a weight of stress was lifted off of me just having taken them. There's still plenty more to do this semester before I graduate, but at least that's done (I hope)!

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone! I'm looking forward to catching up on your blogs!

Wow, those are some huge eye-catching polka dots on your tights - I love the look. Your hair, eyes and lipstick look very pretty. Your mock turtleneck sweater, hounds tooth pencil skirt and blue jacket make up a conservative but pretty and well styled outfit. You look great. I'm sure you passed and am glad that the stress is starting to unwind for you. Hopefully you can relax and enjoy a beautiful Spring season (my favourite season).

Well, I adore this turtleneck of yours and it looks perfect with your red hair and houndstooth print skirt. You might even look a little ROLL TIDE

Congrats for finishing your exams!! If you don't mind me asking what do you mean by comprehensive exams - A UK girl here, so no idea on the American system...

I hope you had a nice lazy weekend and now it's Monday so back to work ;)

I adore that skirt on you everytime I see it!

Can't believe you still got snow. The polka dot tights are adorable as well as your smile and the little bow.
